Romney/Obama: Alec Baldwin Wonders What’s Missing

On Sunday actor Alec Baldwin commented upon Mitt Romney’s

Ken doll appeal

In today’s essay on HuffPo, Baldwin clarifies that he didn’t call Romney a Ken doll, rather he was referring

to that iconic retail figure to highlight those types that are lean of frame and square jawed, like Romney, who seem to hold the public’s attention more easily.

He ends the essay with

Obama is lean of frame and square of jaw and loves his country, too. Obama and Romney even share some opinions on matters of urgent domestic policy. Yet, in some people’s eyes, Obama lacks something. I wonder what that could be?

Kinda like the old joke about Ken:

Missing something, can’t quite put my finger on it.
