Hey, remember Mitt Romney? Yeah, that was a thing for a few years. We don't know how it happened, either. Here's a list of what we assume future generations will mistake a "Mitt Romney" for, including:

  • A type of knot
  • An old time-y cocktail

*"Cat Scratch Fever" by Ted Nugent begins playing and Mitt Romney emerges from behind a curtain, confidently walking towards the podium*

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Thank you -- yes, clapping is a great way to display the emotion of happiness -- thank you.
