Romney repeated his affection for grits in Jackson, Mississippi. The panelists on Alex Wagner's show couldn't restrain themselves from facepalming.
This is enough to make me think his saying "the trees are the right height" sounds intelligent in comparison. That's my second reaction. My first is to recall George Carlin's standup bit about cooking grits.
Actually, you can eat them damned grits, but I doubt Romney actually does.
