Let me finish tonight with this.

It’s called dressing for success.

There are people who do this for a living: tell you how to show up when it’s important how you show up. Remember the old line? “Clothes make the man.”

It’s under that rule that Mitt Romney, the “severely conservative” candidate, has transformed himself from right-wing foot soldier to moderate independent.

In a metamorphosis worthy of a caterpillar flying out as a butterfly, Mitt Romney has fixed his wings for the final days of the campaign. Forget all the limbo-ing he did to win the nomination of the right-leaning party. Forget the humiliating genuflection to the “birthers,” the neocons,” the Norquists. Meet the pliable, fly-able Mitt—the Walter Mitty of  ”I can do anything I want, can pretend to be anyone I want.”

This guy is a piece of work. The question, voters, is this: Did you ever hear the phrase “caveat emptor”? Buyer beware.
