Best picture of Mitt Romney ever

This is a thing of beauty.

It is almost on the level of Joe Biden-with-bikers.


Well played, sir. (Charles Dharapak/AP)

A few notes about this picture: As you would expect for the Greatest Picture of Mitt Romney ever taken, Mitt is still not the most interesting thing in the picture. He is, at best, the second-most interesting. At worst, the cardboard bags upstage him. Mitt Romney, who manages to pull off a fish-slightly-out-of-water look even in family photos, is doing his level best to fit in at this Chipotle restaurant in Denver.

But it’s all about the man in the right-hand corner. Put him on Mount Rushmore. Give him a monument of some kind! He belongs in every posed campaign picture from now on! Heck, give him his own campaign. I, for one, would cover it.
