Some of my best friends are Democrats

Myth Romney is starting to spend the raise before he gets it.

Just a few days after a Des Moines Register put the Man, the Myth, the Legend in his Own Mind at the head of the pack in Iowa, the Mittster is starting to talk like a front-runner. As his own people will tell him -- bad move.

We can start with the fact there is no agreement on his lead. And his South Carolina numbers look sickly, if not deadly.

But that didn't stop Magnanimous Mitt from telling a group of New Hampshire Republicans that he can work with Democrats. Just ask his pals in the Massachusetts Legislature.

Yep, just ask his Republican pals in the Legislature -- before they head off to events for McCain or Giuliani.

Then there's the magnanimous gesture of saying that if elected, he will donate his salary to charity.

Let's leave aside the question of whether taxpayers should foot the $400,000 donation to charities of Romney's choice. A better move would be to forgo his salary, as he did in Massachusetts.

Of course, then people would face the same problem we did -- you get what you pay for.

Should some universal shift occur and WMR gets elected president (god forbid), will he use the same lame excuse for not doing that job that he used for not doing the one we elected him to do here, i.e. "well, I'm not taking a salary"?
