I'm pretty sure this is the Mormon equivalent of swearing up a blue streak:

Mitt Romney is sharpening his warning to Republicans about the consequences of nominating Newt Gingrich, declaring in an interview on Wednesday: “Zany is not what we need in a president.”

“Zany is great in a campaign. It’s great on talk radio. It’s great in print, it makes for fun reading,” Mr. Romney told The New York Times. “But in terms of a president, we need a leader, and a leader needs to be someone who can bring Americans together.”

Not only is equating your opponent to a word you just discovered in a Bazooka Joe strip bad form, Romney's history is wrong. There were plenty of zany presidents. The only question is: Who was zaniest?
