Mitt Romney's favorite novel is Battlefield Earth? And he's running for President of the United States, right? Just checking...
Here's what ESPN's Tuesday Morning Quarterback had to say about it:
This summer, Romney said his favorite novel is the Battlefield Earth series by L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology. If you saw the really awful John Travolta movie Battlefield Earth and assumed it was another example of a movie not as good as the book -- actually, the movie was much better than the books, which number among the worst dreck ever to leave a printing plant.
How long before the main requirement for being President is that you "enjoy playing Deal or No Deal at home along with the contestants... just to see what would happen"?
