Try as he might, Mitt Romney could never sell voters on the idea that he was just like regular folks who shop at Costco.
But the gossip website TMZ captured Romney and his wife, Ann, on an expedition to the warehouse store near their home in La Jolla, Calif., loading up on pantry staples and paper products. The TMZ photo gallery is worth clicking through.
The photographer captured Romney inspecting toy cars — made in China, natch — and pushing his cart loaded with Christmas wrapping paper, Kirkland paper towels (i.e. the store brand), V8 drinks and Arrowhead bottled water. Plus there are photos of Romney unloading a gigantic box of Bisquick and other purchases into a black Audi Q7 SUV. Ann Romney pushes her own cart of Costco purchases behind her husband.
I really don’t know how to deal with all this excitement!
I am glad to see that Gannett has their priorities straight. But what about Sarah Palin? What is she doing today?
Enquiring minds want to know.
