As you’ve no doubt heard, Mitt Romney really stuck his foot in it a few hours ago in London. Overseas now, for his chance to Look Presidential talking foreign policy on foreign shores, Mitt blabbed about a meeting with the UK’s highly-secretive intelligence agency MI6, couldn’t remember the name of Labour Party leader Ed Milliband when he was standing right next to him, and insulted the London Olympics on the day of the Opening Ceremony. Looking Presidential FAIL. Pissing off the Brits: SCORE.

So, now Carl Lewis, whose 10 Olympic medals (9 gold) certainly should entitle him to have at least as credible opinion on all this as Mr. Salt Lake City Olympics. Lewis is our Quote of the Day:
“Every Olympics is ready, I don’t care whatever he [Romney] said. I swear, sometimes I think some Americans shouldn’t leave the country. Are you kidding me, stay home if you don’t know what to say.”
Yeah. Sounds about right. And nicer than I would have been.
