Romney? Again? Please Stop

Republicans really are considering Mitt Romney for 2016. Their reasons are dumb and dumber.
They're coming back. Mitt Romney probably shouldn't.
They're coming back. Mitt Romney probably shouldn't.

This week, Mitt Romney said there was a "one of a million" chance he'd run again for president in 2016. Political journalism being what it is, his comments were taken to mean that he was "opening the door" to another campaign.

Never mind that Romney was quoting a part of the movie "Dumb and Dumber" that is specifically about why treating a one in a million chance as real is, well, dumb.
