On Fox News last night, Mitt Romney squashed one of the oddest rumors I've heard in the past two weeks -- that Mitt and his vanquished foes will go on a "unity tour" around the country.
SEAN HANNITY: There's been talk, rumblings that I've heard, governor, that there might be some type of unity tour with you and all of the Republican candidates for the primary.
Is that true? Have you discussed that with any of them?
ROMNEY: You know, I haven't heard that rumor.
I can't imagine a worse idea for the Republican nominee than to go on a tour with Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Michele Bachmann to kick off the general election.
By the way, I first heard of the idea when Herman Cain went on Hannity last week, and the two talked about both a tour and a "unity dinner!"
CAIN: Yes. He is planning to do some unity things, such as not just a unity tour and dinner. But he's also open to some of the ideas that the other republican primary candidates put on the table.
HANNITY: Whoa, whoa. When was the unity dinner? I wasn't invited. Can I get to that? Can you get me a ticket?
CAIN: Well, we haven't formalized it yet. I will make sure that you get an invitation. That's still in the works.
