    I suppose talking about what Romney and Ryan wear is better than trying to explain a "soup-kitchen" photo op in which Ryan is seen washing pots and pans that had already cleaned. Apparently, he and his wife showed up AFTER the 47% moochers and takers had already been fed, the hall already cleaned up, and the dishes already washed and put away. Didn't stop Ryan from donning an apron and scrubbing those clean pans anyway ... so long as the camera's were rolling and he didn't actually have to meet all the "takers" for his "impromptu" visit.

    Waht kind of toilet paper do they use? romney hasn't gone to burger king or jack-in-the box yet... does he have a political aversion to these places? will they make a surprise appearance at a Wal-Mart to shake hands with the 47%?

    I'm surprised it's not LLBean, since Bean imports 90% of their merchandise from China these days.

    Well, at least they are American made unlike the usual source of Republican swag- Myanmar.
