On his “Rational Irrationality” blog this morning, the New Yorker‘s John Cassidy addressed a memo to Mitt Romney, in which he recommended that he just be himself.

“Don’t be so worried about being depicted as a closet liberal,” Cassidy advised. “You pay fifteen per cent tax; you’ve been married to the same women for forty-odd years.”

The same women?

Cassidy went on to discuss Romney’s Mormonism in the next paragraph—so maybe this was a Mormon-related slip. (“Women” has now been corrected to “woman.”) Then again, until we see Mitt’s long-form marriage license, how do we really know he has only one wife?
