Caption Contest: Mitt Romney Does His Own Laundry Edition

If you’ve been wondering how exactly Twitter has revolutionized the way we experience politics, look no further than this photo to prove the point. This, we are led to believe by the Twitter account of Mitt Romney‘s son, Tagg, is his father, doing laundry on the day of the South Carolina primary. There is so much that can be said about Mitt Romney performing this commoner’s task that we figure it’s best to let you all have at it. The “dad” jeans, the gingerly dangling of the Tide powder box over the bottomless pit of dirty clothes, the meticulous passing of the paper towel over the top of the machine, so as to ensure not a drop of detergent falls where it doesn’t belong– there is a lot happening here to be amused by. The younger Romney must have sensed this, as he tweeted it out with the caption, “Nothing like the glamorous life on the road.”

Somehow we suspect you all could do a better job with witty comments, so we present this photo without comment for your entertainment for a caption contest. Unfortunately, it’s one of those pansy liberal contests where everyone is a winner because there is no real prize (though feel free to snap at each other for lackluster submissions– within Mediaite commenting guidelines, that is).
