Romney campaign flyer suggests there’s nothing wrong with a moron in White House.

Imagine you’re about to address a crowd of would-be supporters who already view your religious beliefs with skepticism and, in some instances, hostility. Now imagine you’re Mormon presidential candidate Mitt Romney about to take the podium to address the crowd when a frantic campaign worker points out a glaring error in the flyers that have just been distributed to the audience: the second M in Mormon has accidentally been omitted.

Well, that’s precisely what happened to Mitt Romney. And this on top of the Romney campaign iPhone app, which called for “A Better Amercia”!

But what could have proven to be a major embarrassment for the candidate surprisingly had no negative impact whatsoever and in fact had quite the opposite effect. “I thought, finally, here’s a guy I can relate to,” said Jed Klumpet, an unapologetic George W. Bush loyalist, who thought it gutsy for Romney to come out of the Northeast corridor intellectual closet and admit he’s a moron. “It’s like Forrest, Forrest Gump says: ‘Stupid is as stupid does.’ Today ol’ Willard done earned ol’ Jed’s respect.”

Klumpet was by no means alone. This was, after all, Bush country, populated by people who were damn proud to have voted twice for George W. Bush, who was far and away the stupidest person to ever occupy the White House. And that includes people like Sarah Palin, Jan Brewer and Michele Bachmann who simply got in as part of a routine public tour.

Holding up the flyer, Romney tried to make light of the error. “Okay, so now you know the truth,” he said with a grin. “I’m no genius.” At that moment, Rick Perry, who was on hand to lend his support, rose to his feet and started chanting, “MORON! MORON! MORON!” The audience followed suit.

At first, Romney stood like a deer in the headlights, thinking the audience was mocking him. But then they started cheering and shouting “Eight more years! Eight more years! Eight more years!” and Romney realized then that he was being officially anointed as the true heir of George W. Bush.

“We learned a great lesson today,” said Romney presidential campaign senior advisor Eric Fehrnstrom. “In the long run, moronism trumps Mormonism. I’ve never been more proud to be an Amercian.”
