Maybe it runs in the family. Failed presidential candidate George Romney, Mitt’s father, said in 1968 that he had been “brainwashed” into supporting the war in Vietnam before he finally opposed it.
I am going to have to assume that when Mitt Romney stands for re-election in 2024, he is going to have to explain how he came to support the Democratic coup, er, I mean (sham) impeachment, against Donald Trump.
Considering the weak will exhibited by his father, I think it is a good bet that, sometime during President Trump’s second term, Mitt will announce that he too was brainwashed:
“It was that damned Adam Schiff. How could I sit there day after day listening to the mellifluous dulcet tones of that Svengali without falling under his spell?
“Did you hear him explain that Trump would give Alaska back to the Russians if we left him in office? It was just so damned convincing! Now I know how Monica Lewinsky got talked into doing the dirty! Some men are just so powerful.
“I’m telling you, it was like I was brainwashed. I just couldn’t see straight. For a while there, he even had me believing that he didn’t know the whistleblower!”
We do know that Adam Schiff can spin quite a yarn. He is after all an aspiring screenwriter, but Mitt Romney cannot escape responsibility for his vote. Though he may have a familial predilection for brainwashing, he will bear the judgment of history just as his father did.
Fortunately, no Romney will ever be president, and Donald Trump always will be one of the greatest.
