Why political reporters have no business describing cars

In yesterday's New York Times article about Romney's thriftiness:

"Soon after Mitt Romney handed out eye-popping bonuses to top performers at his private equity firm in the early 1990s, a young employee invited him to ride in his brand-new toy-- a $90,000 Porsche 911 Carrera.

Mr. Romney was entranced by the sleek, supercharged vehicle...."  (Emphasis added.)

To his credit, Romney drove a beat up Chevy Caprice station wagon with red vinyl seats.
