Mitt Romney and the Griswold Vacation Principle

Griswold Vacation Principle
1. The principle that being dead and strapped to the roof of a car is better than dying from being dragged behind the car (the treatment of Aunt Edna vs. her dog, Dinky, in the movie Vacation).
2. A moral calculation to justify a bad act in pursuit of a higher good.
