Steve Eaton: Columnist discovers mild superpower: The (in)ability to overpower mental filters
I guess in some ways, the ability to talk without activating any brain cells is like a mild superpower. It appears both Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama have this skill to some extent; it seems clear that there are others in Washington, D.C., who have nearly perfected it, too.
I would prefer not to have this gift at all, however. There must be a way to harness my superpower for good. What kind of job could I have where I could just say whatever came to my mind, with no filters? For now I feel like I’m just "biden" my time waiting for the next gaffe to come out of my mouth, and I hate that
Hey, I wonder if Mitt would reconsider his pick for his VP running mate. The guy he picked seems way too smart.
