There’s a four-page investigation running in Vanity Fair on the most tired subject of the presidential race: Mitt Romney‘s money how private he is about it.

Other no-calorie phrases from the story:

  • “…the Romney campaign insists he saves no tax by using them, but there is no way to check this.”
  • “…the young Romney…was willing to push into gray areas when it came to business.”
  • “…we cannot know how he did it.”
  • “Mysteries also arise when one looks at Romney’s individual retirement account at Bain Capital.”

Whole thing here if you have time to waste.
