Mitt Romney had quite a scandalous revelation to share on this morning's Today show: He does, from time to time, and always while exercising great caution, participate in certain leisurely activities, like watching television and reading novels. Would Mother Mittens approve of this? Let's just say, doubtful.

American Idol is a delightful television program, Mittens says. He finds it pleasurable to view. That guy, the guy on American Idol — a real talent, that young man! And the Twilight books: such great fun, a real hoot of a time. Not that Mitt Romney condones vampires, mind you.
