On Wednesday, Romney sunk to a new low of pandering for votes. In an interview with Spanish speaking news channel Univision Romney appeared in what seemed to be a cheap sprayed on tan. Romney pulled a John Boehner and appeared in “brown-face” on the interview program.
Jezebel.com reported it this way, “Did Mitt Romney seriously just wear brown makeup so Latin voters might think he's tan enough to support?” HuffPo was kinder and said, “his orangey-brown appearance on Univision could have been the result of bad lighting or a makeup mishap.” HuffPo reported that the Twitter-verse took notice. One tweet said, "Will Romney put on blackface to talk to African Americans and War paint for Native Americans?" Another said, "Is the same person in charge of speech writing, chair dialogue, messaging & specifics (that don't exist) also doing makeup?"

Here is Romney addressing the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce

(I edited out the photo of Al Jolson on bended knee, along with the suggestion that the image represented Romney appealing to the NAACP...)

A piece on ABC News suggests that Mitt's tan might be actual. They consulted a makeup artist, who supports that contention.

However, the photo of Mitt that ABC posted makes one wonder why Mitt's face is tanned darker than his hands.

One imagines that if he does enough outdoor rallies, he'd acquire and keep a tan.

One also must admit though that he looks awfully orange in that right hand photo above. Sort of like Lindsay Lohan on a bad day. ;-)

The shade is known as "Boehner Beige."

They probably got that stuff that Arnold Schwarzenegger uses on his hair by mistake.

Maybe he just wants to look more like a mandarin?
