Political quote of the day

I love this country. I actually love this state. This feels good being back in Michigan. Um, you know the trees are the right height. The, uh, the streets are just right. I like the fact that most of the cars I see are Detroit-made automobiles. I drive a Mustang and a Chevy pickup truck. Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs, actually.

Mitt Romney, speaking to the Detroit Economic Club, in mostly empty Ford Field. This guy has a tin ear. What does “The trees are the right height” mean?
