Tricky Mitt

I like the fact that he [Romney] tricked liberals into voting for him. ~Ann Coulter

I like the fact that Ann Coulter can be so easily duped by the Romney campaign’s spin about his rank opportunism.  Presumably he voted for Paul Tsongas and donated money to Democrats as part of the elaborate ruse!  Isn’t there something a little bit strange about this kind of “endorsement”?  Who was the last nationally-known Republican frequently associated with the word trick?  Hint: it wasn’t Reagan, and it wasn’t complimentary!
