Bermuda Shorts has never gotten too involved in politics, but I thought it was necessary—especially given the current state of American presidential politics—to point you to an interesting article currently running on Politico.

Then check out Mitt Romney's Bermuda (tax) Holiday to learn more about how Mitt made his millions (rather, kept his millions from being taxed in the U.S.). I'm not sure what's more surprising, that he did it in the first place, that we're just finding out or that it happened in Bermuda.
