Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

There are two schools of thought about this campaign. The conservative establishment—including Rupert Murdoch, Jack Welch and the Wall St. Journal—believes that Mitt Romney isn’t a running a very good campaign. The other side sees Mitt as a fatally flawed candidate who, by even remaining competitive, must be running an amazing campaign.

I side with the latter. Mitt is terrible. In a crisis created by the financial class, he’s a financier. In a party that hates health care reform, he’s a health care reform pioneer. In a country of human beings, he’s Mitt Romney. It’s as if the GOP hated fried chicken so much, they nominated Colonel Sanders. The only way he could be more ill suited to be the GOP nominee right now is if it turns out he was born in Kenya.

So what do you think? Is Mitt terrible candidate running a good campaign? Or vice versa? Let us know in the comments along with any sharp tweets we missed.
