The entire painstaking project, which follows the Republican presidential hopeful from nomination to concession speech, debuts Jan. 17 at the Sundance Film Festival. It airs on Netflix publicly a week later to audiences in the U.S., Canada, Britain, Ireland, Latin America, and the Netherlands, among other locations. The company, incidentally, has 40 million subscribers.

There already a Romney renaissance of sorts underway, however.

Voters appear to miss Mr. Romney — or perhaps, they miss the president he could have been. Already on record is a recent wide-ranging Washington Post-ABC News survey with some startling findings. Among registered voters, Mr. Romney actually bests President Obama in a theoretical rematch, 49 percent to 47 percent.

MR. CHRISTIE’S ADVICE

“Get out of your pajamas. Put on an apron. Get volunteering.”

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s parody reply to a new Obamacare outreach from Organizing for Action, urging the public to “Wear pajamas. Drink hot chocolate. Talk about health insurance.”

THE YEAR’S MOST QUESTIONABLE QUOTES

We already know the “2013 Lie of the Year” as determined by PolitiFact, the fact-checking watchdog: “If you like your healthcare plan then you can keep it,” uttered by President Obama on numerous occasions in the selling of Obamacare. Now we must address who’s behind the “2013 Worst Quotes of the Year,” as determined by the intrepid press monitors at the conservative Media Research Center.

And the grand prize winner is (drumroll please): MSNBC host Martin Bashir, who resigned from the network after his very questionable on-camera rant aimed at former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

The runner-up is also an MSNBC host. That would be Ed Schultz, who extolled the virtues of the Obamacare sign-up website even when it was in tumbling into failure.

“This is a great guide, if I may say, for any of you out there who feel so confused by all of these right-wing commercials that are just permeating through your television screen,” Mr. Schultz told his audience.

In third place is New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, who made “a baffling claim that the Boston Marathon bombing could have been prevented with the carbon tax”, the center says.

“After whistling past the IRS, Benghazi and NSA scandals, President Obama’s press corps of cultlike devotees marched face first into the rancid mess of Obamacare — a rat’s nest of lies and incompetence so big and so rank that even the president’s loyal media cheer squad couldn’t hide its cloud of toxic stink,” declared director Brent Bozell.

Among the 42 judges behind the determinations: columnist Cal Thomas, Wall Street Journal editorial board member James Taranto, talk radio host Mark Levin and Fox News analyst Monica Crowley.
