Mighta Woulda Shoulda Coulda

Conditional Tense

Election news: Mitt Romney would have liked to have done better in the South Carolina primary.

“The timid grammarian,
unable to approach the object
of his unspoken proposition,
is destined to dwell forever
alone in the woulds.”

—Andrew Merton
, journalist and poet,
“Subjunctive,” from
Evidence that We Are Descended from Chairs (2011)

• Editorial Comment: Romney has a little trouble with his verb tense—and he’s a little tight in the shoulders, too.
