Mitt and Matt on buckling up

Have you ever heard lamer excuses for not buckling than those proferred by Matt Lauer and Mitt Romney?

Lauer interviewed Romney as they shared a ride through New Hampshire. Neither wore a seatbelt, even though Lauer had recently interviewed Governor Corzine about his not wearing a seat belt and almost getting himself killed.

Romney: "Sometimes I forget to wear my seat belt. For my own safety, I need to keep reminding myself to buckle up." Unlike, say, your positions on abortion, gun control, and a host of other issues you can't seem to keep straight, you shouldn't need a reminder on your position on the wearing of seat belts. It ought to be a core principle.

Lauer: "...I should have set a better example. There is no seat belt law in New Hampshire, but, again, it was the wrong example to set." No, you should have worn a seat belt because it's the first thing you do when you get into a car, you pompous doofus.

This is what happens to you when you spend too much time riding in the back seat.
