Catch of the Day

I think Willard has left the building. To wit:

"“Ha, ha. We’re in the stretch, aren’t we?” Mr. Romney said before promptly changing the subject and pointing to the sky. “Look at those clouds. It’s beautiful. Look at those things.”"

-- Jeff Zeleny and Jim Rutenberg (Jennifer Steinhauer contributed reporting) in Before Debates, Romney Faces a Daunting Path on the New York Times.

Campaigns are stressful; losing campaigns that are taking their own sweet time to end even more so. For some reason the above line resonated for me, conjuring an image of a trapped man looking out a window at a natural world and freedom forever out of reach.

Or something like that.

UPDATE:

Damn -- thought I was being original there, for a minute. Oh, well.
