Last night, Mitt Romney appeared at a fundraiser in Miami, Florida, emerging for the first time since making those astoundingly classist comments about half of the nation. Normally, we’d expect him to pay a little lip service to all those Americans he degraded but, well, we have no clue what he said because we’re really, really busy being distracted by his skin color. They set the spray tan gun to Lohan!
Look, here he is standing next to someone with recognizably human-colored skin:
See how the man on the left looks like a person? And Mitt Romney looks like Tang?
Anyway, in light of the Mother Jones leak, we can’t help but wonder if the tan is a political strategy (ie, a weirdly literal attempt to add warmth to his robotic visage). But this is politics, so we leave it up to you…
