MAD wants to play a game with you. They'll toss out a saying, and you decide whether the phrase was uttered by Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney or fictional filthy-rich millionaire "Simpsons" villain Mr. Burns. Their infographic quiz pits "Simpsons" sayings against some of Romney's own words.
Here are some of the highlights:
" I've always been a rodent and rabbit hunter. Small varmints, if you will." - Mitt Romney, varmint hunter
" This anonymous clan of slack-jawed troglodytes has cost me the election!" - It's Mr. Burns. Real people don't say things like that.
Critics have repeatedly blasted Romney for apparently failing to connect with the average American voter, claiming for instance, that he doesn't follow NASCAR races very closely, but has " friends who are NASCAR team owners," or telling a Detroit audience that his wife drives " a couple of Cadillacs."
Some of this criticism comes from his own party. Former GOP Presidential hopeful (and former opponent) Rudy Giuliani said during a CNN interview in December that despite Romney's strengths, there was "something missing" when it came to his social reputation. "There's some kind of personal connection that other candidates probably do a better job at."
Nonetheless, Romney continues to hold a steady lead in the race for the GOP nomination, clinching six states in the Super Tuesday contests, including a slim yet significant win in Ohio.
