WAPO mentions DU post! - Mitt Romney’s tanned radiance on Univision

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-partisan/post/mitt-romneys-tanned-radiance-on-univision/2012/09/20/825b7a34-0337-11e2-9b24-ff730c7f6312_blog.html

Tx4obama's now famous post:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/1251101160

A member of my PostPartisan posse — a few self-appointed people around the country who are kind enough to serve as my eyes and ears outside the Washington bubble — has alerted me that folks are buzzing about a possible dark secret out of Coral Gables, Fla., about Mitt Romney. Why did the Republican presidential nominee appear to be downright fake-baked at the Univision forum last night?

The Democratic Underground got the ball rolling late last night. And I have to admit, the former Massachusetts governor’s orangish hue looks positively Boehner-esque. But take a look at Romney’s Sept. 9th appearance on “Meet The Press.”

3. There is not the same contrast in the Meet the Press tan

As there is in the appearance last night. His ears are the same color on the Sept. 9th tape - they are much lighter in the pictures from Univision!

4. The topic and DU were also mentioned on HuffPO, which references Gawker's call-out!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/20/mitt-romney-orange-bronzer-univision-face_n_1900387.html?utm_hp_ref=style

snip -

And there's more evidence: looking at photos from a campaign rally earlier that day, also in Miami, we eyed Romney's profile and detected a "foundation line" where it looked like Romney was definitely wearing a thick slab of orange-y makeup.

Gawker referenced Democratic Underground's pondering if Mitt is "dyeing his face brown" as part of a campaign conspiracy to make him appeal more to Latino voters. That's quite a claim, but we know one thing for sure: Mitt should probably stop taking complexion tips from John Boehner.

snip -

LOL!!

22. Sadly, it is an insight to how his mind works.

He thinks that they will like him more if his skin is not so white....how cynical can you be...unless it is just he is too stupid to know it has nothing to do with his skin color.
To me it is a sign of a mediocre intelligence at best.

27. Its an insight into how all republican minds work.

They only see the exterior, and assume everyone else does, too. Hence, Sarah Palin = Hillary Clinton, Steele=Obama, etc.

30. This dude is a parody of himself.

I don't know how the republicans will manage to look at themselves in the mirror after voting for him. I know that they hate Obama and everything, but this guy is an even bigger clown than W. He is like Sarah Palin without the personality.
