The (Not So Great) Pretender(s)

You know by now that we like to have a little fun with music and politics. You tell us: Is this song more suitable for Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney?

The inimitable Freddie Mercury knew a few things about pretenders…and so do (some) voters. It’s really rather laughable that even on his way out the door, Newt can’t bring himself to not hint that Mitt’s not exactly Mr. Truth-teller. It looks like the Etch-A-Sketch candidate has quite a few bridges to rebuild — and who better than the charismatic Mr. Mercury to tell the story?
