Mitt Romney: Totally insane

Here is what former Gov. of Taxachusetts (where they let teh gheys get married, omg@!11!1!1!111) Mitt Romney had to say today on the subject of men and women just shacking up (and doing it, tee hee!) rather than actually getting married.

“In France, for instance, I’m told that marriage is now frequently contracted in seven-year terms where either party may move on when their term is up. How shallow and how different from the Europe of the past.”
Wha? Really? They do? Interesting, Mitt. Tell me more about this "France" of which you speak.

Maybe this comment is not so surprising, given that the GOP luminaries just had a rawkin' debate at the Reagan Library last week. Perhaps they all left the debate with a renewed sense of purpose, and a newfound desire to just randomly make up stuff "to make a point," in the manner of The Great Communicator himself.

UPDATE: Even better, TIME Magazine's "Swampland" Blog points out that the idea of the seven year marriage is from a sci-fi book by Orson Scott Card, and is in fact "a fictionalization of the Book of Mormon set in outer space."
