Mitt Romney -- Hunter or Hunted?

Everybody is ganging up on Mitt Romney, Republican presidential front runner, for his hunting comments. I echo RJ Eskow's account (below) in that I think it's utter rubbish that a man (or woman) who wants to be president must pander to slices of society. So what if he's never really hunted?

The story here is that he embellished, not that he has only hunted twice though he claims that he's a lifelong hunter.

It's ridiculous that candidates have to kowtow to slices of society in order to get their vote.
