Some have said that Romney’s lifestyle is overly privileged, pointing to the fact that he has an elevator for his cars in the garage of his San Diego home. This is not entirely fair. Romney owns many homes without garage elevators and the cars have to take the stairs.

… After his governorship, Romney suffered through a midlife crisis, during which he became a social conservative. This prepared the way for his presidential run. He barely won the 2012 Republican primaries after a grueling nine-month campaign, running unopposed.

David Brooks’ “biography” of Romney.

1) I love the idea that future historians may find this column, take Brooks’ credibility into account, and presume this to be serious.
2) I can’t believe I am describing a David Brooks column as “hilarious.” Nothing makes sense to me anymore.
