I have some thoughts about Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's secretly recorded video. They are important thoughts.
My thoughts are, I'll admit, eerily similar to some other people's thoughts you may have encountered -- but only up until a point.
At that point, my thoughts become different. Almost imperceptibly different, yes, but still different. In fact, they become so almost imperceptibly different that they become more like the thoughts of an almost imperceptibly different set of people.
Nonetheless, this combination of thoughts -- again, similar in part to one group of people's thoughts and then more in keeping with another almost imperceptibly different set of people's thoughts -- is wholly, utterly and other unnecessary modifiers unique.
Unless you count the small but large group of people who, based upon what I've read and heard, share this exact same combination of thoughts and almost imperceptibly different thoughts.
Even here, though, the particular way many in this group arrived at this same exact combination of thoughts that I have seems to diverge in significant ways from the manner in which I arrived at my thoughts.
Some people in this group, it appears, arrived at their thoughts by thinking them. While I also came to my thoughts in such a manner, I also, importantly, rethought my thoughts before returning to my original set of thoughts.
Certainly, it must be said, an unspecified number of other people who thought the same combination of thoughts and almost imperceptibly different thoughts that I did also arrived at their thoughts by thinking, then rethinking and then rethinking their rethinking. Nobody, least of all me, is denying that.
But here is where I diverge from my likeminded brethren: I forgot many, if not all, of my thoughts during the night and had to re-create them as soon as I woke. In this way, my thoughts -- while combined in the same form and manner as many (OK, probably countless) others -- are much, much fresher.
I'd go so far as to say that my thoughts on this matter are fresher than anyone else's in this group save for, perhaps, a child who just in the past several hours began to think both critically and about the presidential race.
Now, all of this said, I will give you that my thoughts are not very good.
My thoughts are 100-percent correct, don't get me wrong. But they're not as well-formed and profound as they would have been if I were given more time to think them before having to shift focus to thinking about how many other people thought my thoughts.
Ironically, on this latter matter -- thinking about how many other people thought my thoughts -- I feel that my thoughts are quite profound. Unless, it turns out, many other people have also thought them.
In any event, I'm out of room, which means my important thoughts about Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's secretly recorded video will have to wait until a different time, regardless of whether I still think them.
