By now, you've probably heard about how Mitt Romney allegedly bullied a kid in high school. Mitt's "denial" was that he did some crazy things in high school, doesn't remember this incident, and besides, he didn't know the kid was gay.
First, gay kids aren't the only ones who get bullied. As a straight kid who got bullied a lot, I know.
Second, by saying he didn't know the kid was gay, but doesn't remember this incident leads me to think that maybe he did bully the kid. Maybe not to the extreme portrayed in the post, but by his own admission, he wasn't exactly an angel.
So, why does it matter? Well, because Mitt hasn't really grown out of it. As Paul Begala wrote:
