  •  The odd thing about that (9+ / 0-)

    family photo is that, except for Romney, who seems like he's posing for a political ad and looking elsewhere other than the camera -- it is a very sweet picture.  The kids and Ann are adorable.

    Other than the fact that he had functional sperm -- I don't see his connection with women, personally or generally.  I could write a treatise on the faithfulness/commitment of religious women to their otherwise repulsive spouses -- but why bother?  We all have a story, I'm sure.

      toe headed kid. Sorry, but that looks kind of creepy to me. He's not even looking at the camera. Or maybe it's just that he's so painfully white that albinos would stand next to him to blend in.

        fact that the toe-headed child is looking elsewhere.  That reflects many of my own family "portraits" of parents with 5 kids and each of us except one were toe heads at one point or other and all of us screwed up the picture by not looking at the camera.  

        I really do like the picture and wish Mitt could be photo-shopped out of it.  The kids and Ann look happy in a normal way.

        Fortunately, that kid is (was) "tow-headed," as in "flaxen-haired."
