Headline of the Day

Comes courtesy of Matt Yglesias in response to Romney's food drive for Sandy victims:

If Mitt Romney Wants To Help Hurricane Victims, He Should Donate Some Of His Vast Fortune

Too clever by half, Matt!  Says Matt:
 Mitt Romney has a boatload of money—specifically an estimated $250 million in wealth. Not only that, but Romney's campaign and GOP-aligned groups are poised to spend tens of millions of dollars on television advertising in the final week of the campaign. A candidate who genuinely wanted to sacrifice some campaign opportunities in order to help people would take some of that money and give it to storm relief charities rather than spend it on TV ads. 
Yes, makes sense. But "Mitt Romney" and "genuine" do not belong in the same sentence. This is a guy who, at 65 years old, dyes his hair to make it look like he's just now starting to go gray. Look, there's only one thing that Mitt Romney "genuinely wants to sacrifice." And that's the country, sacrificed for another rich man's tax cut.
