WHO DOES HE THINK HE IS, WAGNER?:

Romney gets off on wrong foot at event (Houston Chronicle, 3/02/07)

"It's an honor to be here in high heels, walking backwards," Mitt Romney said Friday as he began his address to the Conservative Political Action Conference.

He was merely referring to a previous speaker's invocation of an old joke -- "Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, except backwards and in high heels." But for a guy trying to win over religious conservatives, it was a strange opening line.

On the first read, I thought he was referring to Giuliani's infamous cross dressing skit.
