Garance tells us that the Republicans are most chuffed that Mitt is sexy and hot and will make women all over America swoon in the voting booths:

"In this media-driven age, Romney begins with a decisive advantage. First, he has sensational good looks. People magazine named him one of the 50 most beautiful people in America. Standing 6 feet, 2 inches tall, Romney has jet-black hair, graying naturally at the temples. Women -- who will play a critical role in this coming election -- have a word for him: hot."

According to Garance this is from official Mitt Romney campaign literature. It wouldn't surprise me as I've read that I shouldn't vote for John Edwards because he spends too much on haircuts and that I shouldn't vote for Hillary Clinton because she doesn't smile enough. But HAWT! Now, that is something a girl can get behind.

If she was picking a bedroom partner, that is. Now, if she was picking a dentist or a president, perhaps questions of professional competence and policies might be more interesting to her.
Addendum: Garance's original post is updated to tell us that the material doesn't come from Romney campaign material but from this article.
