Romney Held a ‘Storm Relief Event’ in Ohio Today

Obama isn't holding any campaign events today or tomorrow.

But Romney, as a self-described "unemployed" person, has no actual power. He can't direct FEMA, he doesn't have a Situation Room in which to take Serious Photos with Serious People. And by most measures, he's trailing still trailing in the electoral college vote, so he also doesn't have the luxury of time. Which is why Romney already resumed the campaign again today in Ohio. Oh, wait, sorry, he held a, uh, "Storm Relief Event" to collect "flashlights, batteries, diapers, toothbrushes, mini-deodorants, fleece blankets, cereal, toilet paper and canned goods" bound for New Jersey. It was just a coincidence that the "Storm Relief Event" happened to take place in the country's most important swing state
