Wait, Romney is a conservative. And apparently folks on the left think Trump is a conservative. But Romney is no fan of Trump. How can that be? It's mind blowing - almost as if conservatism isn't a monolithic thing! Wait, is that racist? Personal responsibility is racist too I suppose.

Personal responsibility is so blasť. If personal responsibility were not so eschewed, how could accomplishments by the individual be denigrated, and poor choices be excused?

We're doing parody, right?
