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."
