Schrödinger’s candidate

David Javerbaum puts forth the theory that Mitt Romney is the first true quantum candidate:

In much the same way that light is both a particle and a wave, Mitt Romney is both a moderate and a conservative, depending on the situation. It is not that he is one or the other; it is not that he is one and then the other. He is both at the same time.

Nor is this the only example of observed quantum behavior by Romney:

Frustrating as it may be, the rules of quantum campaigning dictate that no human being can ever simultaneously know both what Mitt Romney’s current position is and where that position will be at some future date. This is known as the “principle uncertainty principle.”

And really, this makes more sense than the once-popular Etch A Sketch model, which suggested that Romney was full of, um, aluminum powder.

    Calling him the Schrödinger candidate is a profound insult to Schrödinger’s cat. Whether or not we outside the box know if the cat is alive or dead, at least the cat knows.

    Romney, not so much.
