Reports are swirling that former presidential-hopeful, Mitt Romney, was “shellshocked” after it became abundantly clear that the Governor’s five-year campaign for the presidency had ended in defeat. After canceling staffer’s credit cards, Governor Romney insisted he would not become irrelevant in American politics. And PBS has just the job.
Within the next two decades, PBS will begin work on a President Obama edition to their American Experience series. In the same way Bob Dole and Michael Dukakis maintained relevancy as the defeated opponent in the President Clinton and President Bush documentaries, so too will Mitt Romney find a place in a future President Obama documentary.
Ironically, a Romney administration would have done away with PBS funding, putting the award-winning documentary series in jeopardy. Now, Romney sees an opportunity to change history.
“Governor Romney may have lost the 2012 election, but he has yet to lose the documentary version of the 2012 election,” a spokesman told MildlyRelevant.com, seemingly undeterred by the impossibility of changing history.
“Today, we begin a new campaign to take our country back,” the Governor said in a written statement. “And I pledge to defund PBS as soon as we win the documentary campaign.”
