The following is a passage from John Milton’s Paradise Lost. It appears on the title page of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

There is something telling in this passage in that it speaks of Shelley’s monster possessing something which Mitt Romney appears to lack – an awareness of who he is. The monster (the fictional one) knows that his deeds are evil and has an understanding of what drives him to do the things he does. Not so with Romney. While both are creations of outside forces – one by a man obsessed with a need to uncover the secret to life, the other by a privileged upbringing which leaves him cold and insensitive to the needs of the less fortunate – the Frankenstein creature possesses feelings and emotions which are clearly human in nature.
Sadly, the same cannot be said of Romney which is why you will be forced to sit and watch another horrific five months of Romneystein.
