Like father, like son: Shades of gray still linger

December 03. 2011 9:38PM

Longtime readers may recognize the cartoon published here as the work of Bob Murphy, whose talents helped fill these pages for many years.

But we didn't have to call 'Murph' out of his Florida retirement to come up with this graphic jab at Mitt Romney's flip-flopping.

The Gov. Romney who can't hew to a straight course in this cartoon is actually Mitt's father, George, who ran and lost in the 1968 New Hampshire Presidential Primary. (A tipoff: the Old Man of the Mountain in the background.)

We were reminded of the cartoon last week while watching Fox News host Brett Baier trying to pin down the younger Romney on several of his more famous 'course corrections.'

Romney denied them all, haughtily telling Baier to get his facts straight.

To which we say: Mush! Mitt! Mush!
