For months and months, I thought the dominant Romney narrative of 2012 was "privileged rich douchebag with a plutocratic sense of entitlement." More and more, though, I'm coming to see it as this: "Unqualified, unprepared, and unfit."

The Grey Matter: How Romney is like the Wizard of Oz.

Brilliant at Breakfast: How Romney-Ryan is like Bush-Cheney.

Frankly Curious: How Americans are their own investors.

The Duck of Minerva: How some nations are seen to be more "real" than others.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction (@mjwstickings). I'll be here through Sunday.
