This week, rioters took to the streets of Athens, Greece -- enraged by their government's economic austerity measures. In Canada, rioters took to the streets of Vancouver -- enraged by... the loss of a hockey game. Stateside, Anthony Weiner finally stepped down, joining the ranks of the unemployed -- a category multimillionaire Mitt Romney also claimed membership in, telling a group of unemployed Floridians who had just described their struggles finding a job, "I'm also unemployed." It was a moment the New York Times labeled "awkward" -- probably not a word you want associated with your presidential run (who can forget President Dukakis, President Gore, President Dole and President Kerry?). Of course, voters will forgive the occasional awkward moment -- but moments that are awkward and disconnected from reality? Not so much. Happy Father's Day to all our HuffPost Dads!
