I actually feel kinda sorry for this guy...



An independent pro-wrestler from Indiana who received $15,000 in exchange for tattooing the Romney/Ryan logo on his face told Politico he had no regrets.

"I'm a tattoo guy, and it was something fun," Eric "Erico" Hartsburg, a father of one from Michigan City, told the news site. "I was trying to make politics fun. I didn't change no lives; I'm no hero. But I shed blood for this campaign, and I'm glad to know that I did all that I could."

Still, Hartsburg admits he was "totally disappointed" by Romney's loss last week. "I'm the guy who has egg all over his face, but instead of egg, it's a big Romney/Ryan tattoo. It's there for life."

He's received his share of "negative stuff" for auctioning off his face on eBay, but Hartsburg is taking it in stride. "I love Mitt,tats n attn," he told one Twitter follower who called him a fool. "So 2 me its genious."

Indeed.

1. where did the bulk of the money go--pretty sure that tat did NOT cost 15k

no, I do not feel sorry for this idiot at all. I suspect he pocketed most of that money, and is loving all the publicity.
