The author of The Quantum Theory of Mitt Romney must have been awake during a physics class somewhere.
It’s clever from beginning to end. The writer uses principles of quantum physics to explain Romney weirdness. Yes, it could have been written about a democrat but it wasn’t. Higgs is jealous that he didn't think of it first. Here are some of the best bits:
Complementarity. In much the same way that light is both a particle and a wave, Mitt Romney is both a moderate and a conservative, depending on the situation (Fig. 1). It is not that he is one or the other; it is not that he is one and then the other. He is both at the same time.
Probability. Mitt Romney’s political viewpoints can be expressed only in terms of likelihood, not certainty. While some views are obviously far less likely than others, no view can be thought of as absolutely impossible. Thus, for instance, there is at any given moment a nonzero chance that Mitt Romney supports child slavery.
