A reader weighs in on the Romney chortle:
I always think of this scene from Anchorman when I see Romney's "laugh" (starts around 0:33). I imagine him going through the steps in his head … "Ok, someone made a joke and people are starting to laugh. Time to smile and chuckle. Keep going, they're still laughing. Ok, they're slowing down, let's bring it down a notch. Are we done yet? Ok, it's dying down. Reduce it to just the smile. Ok it's over, back to the script. Really great job Mitt, you're a winner."
