Mitt Romney’s official coronation goes down this week at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. Can he get by without slipping up? Unlikely. From his energetic rendition of “Who Let the Dogs Out” to last week’s tasteless crack about birth certificates, Romney has had more gaffes over the years than your average politician. Sometimes they’re unintentionally revealing (“I have some great friends who are NASCAR team owners”); other times they’re just plain weird (“Lemon. Wet. Good”). Introducing Salon’s running list of Romney-isms, from today all the way back to 1994.
41. “No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.” (Aug. 24, 2012)
40. “Join me in welcoming the next President of United States, Paul Ryan!” (Aug. 11, 2012)
