A new pro-Romney group: Career politicians for Mitt

Pete WilsonMitt Romney disdains politicians who spend year after year in the public sector, where they're insulated from the problem-solving challenges that arise in the business world. So whose endorsement is the Romney campaign trumpeting?

Former California Gov. Pete Wilson's.

This from Wilson's bio, which accompanied the press release:

Pete Wilson served as the 36th governor of California (1991–1999), the culmination of more than three decades of public service that included eight years as a United States Senator (1983–1991), eleven years as Mayor of San Diego (1971–1982) and four years as a California State Assemblyman (1967–1971). 


100 years of American politics

Isn't that Marge Simpson behind that veil?
