Reality is hard. Today Harry Reid learned that his imaginary friend lied to him about Mitt Romney not having paid taxes for the last 10 years. Ellen Barkin might or might not still be struggling to come to terms with the existence of Twitchy. And now Lizz Winstead is wondering if Mitt Romney himself is real.

Yes, he is. And this Rasmussen poll showing a dead heat is real. Now if we could just convince America (college students especially) that “The Daily Show” is fake, we’d be making progress.
