Romney: Looks like a Push

Romney Missouri Damon Winter

After last night’s drenching, how many ways do we like Damon Winter’s photo on Mitt’s situation?

• Looking even more like a robot now.

• Like screen shot from Night of the Living Dead. …Or else: “Early mourning.”

• Watch you back? And then, talking vulnerability (metaphorically and literally): Who gets that far out front with that little protection?

• “Um, excuse me, Mr. Romney? Hello!!” Even “the Massachusetts Moderate” turns his back on the women’s vote.
