How Do You Restore The Future?
The name of Mitt Romney's Super PAC has got folks wondering what the hell it means.
It's an actual contradiction, an inscrutable zen koan for this election cycle. It is, concedes a top Romney supporter, "a head-scratcher." The Democratic consultant Paul Begala, who heads Obama's counterpart group Priorities USA, goes one step further. "It drives me fucking crazy," Begala said. "It just doesn't make any sense. It's like saying, 'I'm out in the garage restoring my 2020 Ford car.'" The origins of the title are the source of some mystery in Republican circles. Charlie Spies, the former Romney aide who runs it, declined to comment after, he said, consulting with his the others running it.
