Is Mitt Romney Channeling Michele Bachmann?

It seems like just yesterday that Republicans' worst fear was that a divisive culture warrior in the form of a Michele Bachmann or a Rick Santorum would secure the nomination for president. Then, staid old Mitt Romney, the Brooks Brothers suit of candidates, dispatched his more ideologically flamboyant competitors in the primaries and it seemed like the party finally settled on a candidate who could seriously challenge President Obama.

But just when it was beginning to feel safe for independents fed up with Obama's economy to consider voting for Romney -- because maybe his starchy temperament and fixation on the bottom line might do the trick -- he goes abroad and reinvents himself as a defender of superior cultures around the world.
