Election Update: Romney and Gatsby Ball Hard
Posted 7/10/2012 2:56:00 PM

While some politicians derive their inspiration from historical figures like John Winthrop or George Washington, Mitt Romney  decided to resort elsewhere in the realm of the conventional role model -- it seems that he has recently turned to F. Scott Fitzgerald's infamous character Jay Gatsby.  Romney spent massive amounts of money on a Hampton's fundraiser where, naturally, pretentious things were said, not far off from the snobbish speech which Gatsby employs. Thanks to Comedy Central's Indecision Forever blog, you can guess which of the listed quotes pertain to something said by GOP members at Romney's lavish event and which are from The Great Gatsby.
