It may be the case that Stacy made an accidental left turn on Kübler-Ross Drive while in Florida. However, noticing the fact that Bruce CampbellMitt Romney looks nearly Clooney-esque in his chiseled, masculine perfection, in contrast to the former Speaker-as-big-as-the-House, is just blatantly obvious.

Should the election be solely about ideas and policy? Sure. Do the appearances matter. You bet your frickin’ bippy they do. Thus we see, about 5 seconds in:Stacy McCain, future U.S. Ambassador to Vanuatu, dispensing fashion wisdom to Rick Santorum. Look for the loud print sweater vest and clashing fedora any day now.

In response to you conclusion about Mitt:

Because he can not win the argument on principle, he is destroying his opponent’s image, name and reputation. Let’s not pretend it’s a new tactic, or that he’s suddenly become something he is not, a charismatic conservative leader.

Look: either the American people are an idiotic pack of sheep, in which case we might as well just post LOLCats and start loving RomBamaCare, or we rally the troops around NotMittRomney and keep our Republic.

Should candidates care about their physical appearance? Sure. Newt should have a personal trainer and trim down. Discipline starts with the self.

Should we fear barrages of attack ads? We should fear un-educated voters far more.

Update: from the seed of an idea, the Curmudgeon at Political Clown Parade gives us Willard Fabio:

    Looks like The Shirt defeated the IR focusing beam in the camcorder.

    McCain really, really, really needs to regroup. He looks like a toddler dressed him.

    Willard Fabio’s facial complexion doesn’t match up with his chest tan, making him look a bit mottled.  And the green and khaki of the sacks just enhance this.  Blonde locks are also not a good choice…

    A checkered sweater vest and clashing fedora would probably draw the viewer’s eye from this terrible problem.

    I can’t defend RSM on his fashion picks.  The hat works, and the beat up sports coat too, but basically that is about it.

    Oh smitty, this is for you and RSM.  I will send a copy to Dan Riehl too.

    Fashion is what you can buy.  Style is what you can get away with wearing.  I endorse Stacy’s fashion choices…

    He’s going for a sort of Gonzo look.

    Newt should NOT hire a personal trainer to “slim down.”  He should not try to be someone he is not.  He is having enough of a mental work out being who he is.  Slimming down didn’t work for Huck and it won’t work for Newt.  Discipline, schmiscipline.  At his age, dropping a ton of weight only happens if you have cancer or a lot of free time.  I hope he has neither ever.

    Hey, you know who . . ….

    Kübler-Ross: Yer doin' it wrong. . . . is probably just a smidge dismayed right about now?  Longtime Palinista and newly-minted Santorophile, Stacy McCain, that’s who!  Why, I can only imagine what kind of blue streak must have emanated from …

    Yeah he needs to slim down before he has a fucking heart attack or a stroke. Good God look at the guy. If he doesn’t win the presidency he could always get a role playing “The Blob” in the next Wolverine movie.
