    Memorial Day already?

      Time flies.

        You can’t – they fly too fast

      I wondered the same.

  • DarkHeart

    I’d rather have a photo with Clint Eastwood and the chair.

      They could at least have Mitt sporting one of the WDC hoodies, although that would make for a very awkward image (has Mitt ever worn a hoodie?). Haha, make it even more awkward and have a cardboard cut-out of Obama wearing a hoodie over a business suit next to Romney as well!

      • malaka

        no hoodie – only magic underpants

        • Harry Potter

          You magic-hating git. Stupefy!

  • G Clifford Prout (now moderated for extra purity)

    Quite frankly a cardboard cutout probably has a better chance of getting things done in Washington.

  • He likes to wear my pair of mom jeans.

  • Joe

    Mitt looks so energized & life-like after the convention.

    • Not Me

      A source close to the Romney Campaign reportedly saw Sheldon Adelson patt Mitt on the head, rub his belly and call him a good boy!

      • Newt

        Shel, why don’t you love me anymore???

    • BlueSkies

      He’s so one-dimensional.

  • NVAC artist

    Love that our latest art exhibit is being featured but…WHY is there a photo of some random tourist shop?
