Can Rule 5 Help Give Mitt Romney’s Campaign Some Swagger?

I’ll say that it couldn’t hurt. . .

But the real question is, can Mitt borrow enough personality from Stacy McCain to pull off something like that in non-laboratory conditions?

    Hey, I’m a pretty good looking guy and I use Old Spice…never had a bunch of hot chicks hanging all over me.

    Guy kinda looks like Romney from a distance.

    As a Bruce Campbell fan, you take that back.

    One of my first great disillusionments was when, several years before I needed to shave, I purchase a bottle of “Hai Karate” After Shave.  They had instructions for a self-defense move on every bottle, and their commercials showed that users literally had to beat the women back to keep them away.

    A hard lesson, that one.

    The new look is an improvement for her, all right.

    Ticksville Crotch has voted:  Romney 2, Huntsman 2, Gingrich 1, Paul 1, others 0.

    The legend says that if Romney sees his shadow tomorrow, we’ll have six more weeks of campaigning.

    “borrows enough personality….”

    LOL! I’m not sure he could borrow enough to become less plastic than he is. He’d deplete RSM of personality before that would happen.
