The Mitt Boy!

When he isn't doing his Steve-Forbes-circa-2000 impression (a Republican of my acquaintance rolled her eyes and nodded vigorously when I pointed the odd similarities between politicially hapless zillionaire Steve Forbes and politically hapless zillionaire Mitt Romney), our favorite antifemale Mormon guy is making the pulses throb wildly in matrons of both sexes. Get a load of this (h/t DownWithTyranny):
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.
Hoo boy. Hose the ladies down.
In the '20s, there was the It Girl. Nowadays, we have the Mitt Boy. All must fall down in abject abjectness before his cut bod, his artfully tousled hair, and his studly balance sheet.
So, when will Maureen Dowd start sharpening her claws on Pretty Boy Romney? When will she start obsessing to all and sundry about how much his hairdos cost? When will she start calling him 'Breck Girl'? Or "Oromnbi"? Or does she only do that to Democratic presidential candidates?
