From the Washington Post Mail Bag
I guess this election is over because this is the quality of critique that is showing up asLetters to the Editorin the Washington Post.
ThePost reportedthat Mr. Romney pops popcorn at home and puts it in his wife’s purse when they go to the movies. A political adviser described watching him walk to a nearby convenience store to bring back Perrier to drink with a meal. He does not want to spend the extra money charged for the same products at the cinema or restaurant.
At the movies this is a clear violation of policy. At the restaurant it is less clear, but it is clearly wrong. Is this what we want from a presidential candidate? Someone who sneaks food into the movies and is unwilling to pay a restaurant its prices?
I expect better of my children and have taught them better.
