ROFLMFAO! NOT PHOTOSHOPPED.
Photo taken this morning at the Olympic aquatic center.
Romney's PR people bragged the trip would produce numerous photo-ops making Mittens look presidential.
Yeah, not so much.
Now he's seen as an international buffoon after single-handedly straining ties with America's longest and closest ally.
Update: Wow! My first recommended diary. Thank you, everyone!
Update: The ratings are out and last night's broadcast set a new record as the most watched Olympic opening, ever.
Friday's opening ceremony averaged 40.7 million viewers, which set a 50+ year record as the most-watched opening for a Summer Games, topping the Atlanta games (39.8 million).This means last night's viewership rose an impressive 15.24% over the 2008 Beijing games. It makes you wonder if the Romneyshambles firestorm, which went world wide on twitter and led the nightly news broadcasts of all three networks, caused the spike in interest.
By comparison the 2008 opening ceremonies in Beijing averaged 35.31 million.
