rich, wierd romney

He seems incapable of natural conversation and frequently uncomfortable in his own skin. He’s simultaneously dorkily earnest and ingratiatingly insincere. He suggests a brilliantly designed politician android with an operating system still clearly in beta. He once tied a dog to the roof of his car and drove for hundreds of miles without stopping and some years later thought that was an endearing story. All video of him attempting to interact with normal humans is cringe-inducing, as a cursory YouTube search quickly demonstrates................

His off-kilter interpretation of casual conversation also involves guessing at the ethnic background of strangers, poorly (“are you French-Canadian?”), and awkward joking (pretending a waitress pinched his ass). And he enjoys congratulating people, seemingly for the feat of existing and being in the vicinity of Mitt Romney.

1. Spot on

Is it his richness that makes him weird or would he be weird anyway? He tries so hard,I can't even watch him without cringing.

2. hard to tell

but anybody building a car elevator for their mansion is possibly even outside the mainstream of the very wealthy.

But I think most folks that wealthy are pretty disconnected from we unwashed masses. Most people remember GHW bush's unfamiliarity with grocery scanners as an example. But I also recall his war on drugs address from the oval office when he held up a sandwich baggy with crack in it. he looked so uncomfortable - like he had never handled a ziploc baggy with even a sandwich in it.
