One of my favorite Monty Python sketches is the "splunge" skit, which centers around a meeting between a movie producer (Irving C. Saltzberg) and his head writers. When Saltzberg shares his awful idea for a new movie, one sycophantic writer tells him the idea is the best he's ever heard. The producer immediately fires him for being a "yes" man. Saltzberg then demands an answer from the second writer, who calls the idea horrible, thinking that must be the right answer. However, he, too, is fired. This happens several times throughout the skit, thoroughly confusing the remaining writers. Terrified and unable to decide whether to declare the idea good or bad, one writer splutters the nonsensical word, "splunge". Ridiculously, Saltzberg loves that answer.
Mitt Romney reminds me of the writer that said "splunge", because he is completely incapable of giving clear, decisive answers on any issue. Instead of constantly flip-flopping back and forth, he should just say "splunge" and cover all of the bases at once.
