I’m not sure it’s fair to compare Mitt Romney’s speech yesterday in Newport News, Virginia to President Obama’s decision to move his convention speech indoors, but some are making the connection.
The video above features footage of Romney in the rain, juxtaposed with a CNN reporter saying, “the venue moved inside from an outdoor stadium, because Democrats feared it would rain.”
This, of course, reminds me of George Carlin’s classic routine comparing baseball to football:
Football is played in any type of weather,
rain, sleet, snow, hail, mud,
can’t read the numbers on the field
can’t read the yard markers,
can’t read the players numbers,
the struggle will continue.
In Baseball if it rains,
we don’t come out to play!
I can’t come out to play!
It’s raining out!
I guess Romney is more like football?
