Wonkette has a good catch: look at this picture of Romney speaking to Univision.

Wonkette

That is not Willard's usual look, is it? It looks ... browner.
As though Romney was doing Ace Ventura: "In order to win the Mexican ... you must BE the Mexican!".
Or as though Romney was still thinking "Sure would be easier if I were Mexican".
Or maybe he just had a secret meeting with John Boehner and John is just rubbing off on him.
But I think this is just the pander-o-matic performing its usual function. Even Willard's skin is inauthentic. The witty NegSpin dubs this "Tandering", and I agree.

Grubber supplies a second picture in comments (Thanks, grubber!).

He looks even darker in this one, and darker than the hosts, too.

Dem in VA provides a picture of Romney early on the same day wearing the same clothes.

There is no question he is made up to look much darker than usual.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
