Romney in Spandex on Worth Avenue..dear gawd...

So, Ann is not the only Romney who drew some attention on Worth Avenue this past weekend. Turns out that the good-looking guy in bike shorts and a bike helmet who was knocking on Fiandaca’s door drew a few stares, too. It was the candidate himself, who, he told Somebody Who Was There, interrupted his bicycle ride to visit his wife during her shopathon at the store.

“We thought it was just a handsome Day School dad on a Saturday bike ride until somebody answered the door and he said ‘I’m here to see my wife,’ and then we realized who it was. It was hard to tell with the bike helmet.” It’s a good thing he wasn’t photographed. We all know what happens to helmeted presidential hopefuls from Massachusetts.

Apparently, the nominee-
presumptive cut quite a figure in the Spandex, our Somebody said. “One look at what he did for those bike shorts and every woman in town would be voting for him.” Well, no wonder he’s opposed to gun control. He’s packing some heat!

2. I know, right? I so wish there was a photo...sigh. He seems a little obsessed with being

around her all of the time, I wonder if it annoys her...He may have heard there were cameras and press at Fiandaca's and wanted in, who knows..Creepy.

6. Fiandaca's 2012 Collection.

I wonder how much Ann's "shopathon" set Willard back. But he can afford it. So, whatever.

10. And no one got pictures? Dang. God has now abandoned us.

What happened? Things were going so well earlier with the pictures and sound bites from the Republican candidates. Now we get verbal descriptions from some store clerk. Crap.

14. Whoever is making these claims are bullshitters.

If anyone has seen him out campaigning and seen him in his jeans would know it is bs.
