Mitt Romney has decided to unleash the power of aggregate online wisdom by turning to Yahoo Answers to ask a series of questions. The first one is:
"How can we change the tax code to ease the burden on our families and promote growth and innovation?"
This is an odd place to find a would-be president seeking out the people's thoughts on the issues of the day, given that the peer-to-peer discussions at Yahoo Answers usually run along the lines of
"How can i make my skin glowing in 7 days?"
"Who would win in this Tag Team Fight--Spiderman and Ghost Rider or Venom and Magneto?
The cute little cartoon avatars
also lower the gravitas quotient a wee bit. (Mitt, however, gets a little photo.)
So far, the replies seem to be mostly from abolish-the-inxome-tax zealots, and also from some people who think the rich aren't taxed enough but don't seem to have a lot of facts at their disposal. Drop by if you're totally bored. Can't wait to see what he asks next.
