As Olympics begin, Romney is in gold-medal gaffe form.

Well, what do you expect from the sort of candidate who'd receive an endorsement from Floyd County's illustrious GOP cadre ... and far too many of the county's so-called Democrats?

Prompted by my friend JV's quip elsewhere, I devoted a Facebook status update yesterday to thanking Groucho Marx for clearly anticipating the advent of the buttoned-down, teetotaling, flip-flopping Mitt Romney:

"He may look like an idiot and talk like an idiot but don't let that fool you. He really is an idiot."

More ammunition in defense of Groucho's assertion comes from abroad, specifically the UK, where even the conservative politicians chortle at the Mittster.

Oh, Mitt: those Romney gaffes in full ("US News Blog" at The Guardian)

From criticising the biggest sporting event Britain has held in over 40 years, to "looking out of the backside of 10 Downing Street", Mitt Romney's first foreign trip of his presidential candidacy hasn't gone quite as well as he might have hoped. As the former Massachusetts governor continues to gaffe his way across London, here's a round-up of Romney's red-facers. So far.
