Who are these people?
The chorus line at Chippendale’s?
The lineup for the baseball All Stars game?
The cast of “The Book of Mormon” on Broadway? (Hint: now we’re getting a bit closer.)
Or is it—yes—four of Mitt Romney’s five grown and surpassingly telegenic sons:
Here are all five, with parents:
For me this post is about beefcake, pure and simple. But of course politics rears its ugly head. I found, while looking for suitable photos around the web, that not only was the focus on son Matt’s joke about Obama’s birth certificate, but most of the photos of the sons were featured in posts on leftist blogs that were snarkily critical of the fact that none of the sons had served in the military. It’s a charge that would never, never, ever be leveled against a Democratic candidate by fellow-Democrats, but it’s just a foretaste of the plan of attack if Romney is nominated.
Whoever wins the nomination, this is going to be a knock-down drag out battle. That’s one of the reasons, I think, for a lot of people’s preference for Newt over Mitt (two odd names, by the way). Or we could use the old tried and true criterion of who’s taller: it’s Mitt, who seems to beat Obama by an inch in that department.
