Mitt Romney apparently has the weird quirk of being unable to say “sport” in the plural. I like to take all of my strange affected cultural cues from Mitt Romney.
Mitt Romney was speaking to a Texas audience about job creation last week whenthe subject turned to sport. “I met a guy yesterday, seven feet tall,” he said on Wednesday at Southwest Office Systems in Fort Worth. “Yeah, handsome, great big guy, seven feet tall! Name is Rick Miller—Portland, Oregon. And he started a business. Of course you know it was in basketball. But it wasn’t in basketball! I mean, I, figured he had to be in sport, but he wasn’t in sport.”
This is funny, because who talks like that? Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney talks like that.
