In the spirit of The Oscars, The Chris Matthews Show decided this weekend to humorously cast GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney as "The Artist."

The 70 second parody trailer features the characteristics of the Academy Award nominated silent film, and factors in Romney aesthetically looking the part of president until he begins talking.

Hence the title of the trailer being called Mitt: "Better off Mute."
