Iraq war supporter and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, asked today about the fact that not one of his five sons has served in the U.S. military: "One of the ways my sons are showing support for our nation is helping me get elected because they think I'd be a great president."

Romney noted that one of his sons is driving around Iowa in an R.V. to help spread the Romney message. Which is like driving a Humvee through Baghdad, only different.
