While we were out: Romney boys; In/Out for 2012

Whither the Romney boys? Four years ago, we all memorized the names of the five brothers omnipresent on the campaign trail: Tagg, Matt, Josh, Craig, Ben, “their heavy brows, square jaws and penchant for corny jokes coming together in a sort of cubist portrait of their father.” This time around, writes our colleague Sandhya Somashekhar, their dad insisted they stay closer to their homes, careers and 16 kids, and the Huntsman daughters are soaking up all the Cute Mormon limelight. But we may be seeing more of the Romneys in coming months.

If you haven’t seen it already, please take some time with The In/Out List for 2012. Some excerpts:

Out: Reagan In: Thatcher

Out: stewardess nostalgia In: postman nostalgia

Out: Nicki Minaj In: Azealia Banks

Out: Words with Friends In: Scrabble (with neighbors)

Out: Natalee Holloway In: Natalie Wood

What does it mean?!?!? We have no idea, we only know we must comply.
