O/T: Shades Of The Caine Mutiny

Shades of the past.
Remember the "Caine Mutiny", written by Herman Wouk, and made into a movie staring Bogey as Capt'n Queeg in the mid 1950's?
Bogey as Capt'n Queeg, testifying from the witness chair, about the so called mutiny aboard the Caine, and playing with some steel balls in his hands.
Queeg always played with those balls when under pressure.
As his testimony continued, the deeper the hole he dug for himself and the more animated the movement of the balls in his hands became.
I'm reminded of that scene as I watch Mitt Romney perform concerning his comments about the 47% group.
The only thing missing are the balls.

Sounds like you are a little young to remember the "Caine Mutiny".

I will grant you it has been a few years since I read the book and saw the movie; however, don't think I deviated from Wouk's plot line by much, if any, thus I was speaking the truth.
Perhaps you need to go back and reread the book to sharpen your memory focus a tad.
As far as Romney is concerned, he continues to demonstrate how much he is "not ready for prime time" on almost a daily basis.
