Mitt Romney debate performance wins Booker Prize for Fiction
An Oct. 3 debate performance by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney won the prestigious Man Booker prize for fiction today. Normally the award is given to a novel written by a writer who is a citizen of the citizen of the Commonwealth of Nations, Ireland or Zimbabwe. This year marks the first time the prize has been given to an American politician for lying his ass off. "The best fiction writers can make up a story that people will believe," said chair of judges Aella Cunningham. "Romney certainly achieved that last week with his masterful spinning of tales. It was a stunning achievement." Literary critic Nigel Price agreed. "The great thing about Mitt Romney as a character is that he can play his own literary foil," he said "For every position he holds, he also holds the exact opposite position. Why just this week he managed to change his position on abortion in the span of a single day. It's genius."
