Romney: More Syrup!

Romney pancakes

I know I’ve been banging Mitt for his photo-ops (like the hay bale announcement, and the baby juggling in the blighted strip-mall). Not this time, though. Given his vibe as a refugee from the Sears-Roebuck catalog, a virtual throwback to the 50’s, the pancake breakfast (as if this, down to the kid’s haircuts, was shot on a set from the era) is the perfect Romney backdrop. It’s such a shame about his anger problem. Otherwise, “the look” is the perfect recession package — as comfort food.

…More syrup, honey!
