Political Wire: How Romney Gets So Tan
"A knowledgeable source tells BuzzFeed the answer is in a bit of cosmetic technology used commonly by celebrities: spray tanning. The Republican nominee has made a habit of spray tanning before major speeches, debates, interviews, and other events that have a chance of getting wide TV coverage, the source said. He pays for the process out of pocket -- sparing his campaign the expense, and the task of masking it on public campaign finance reports -- and steers clear of public salons where he could be recognized. Instead, he gets misted down in the comfort of his own home or hotel suite."

2. I wish they would explain why he does it . . .
Emulating the Chumps orange skin tone?
Trying to pander to people of color?
Driving home the point that he's so wealthy he has oodles of spare time to lounge in the sun?
There's really no good reason, so why do it at all?
