Ann Romney: “unzip him and let the real Mitt Romney out”

Who knew Mitt Romney had an unintentionally hilarious wife:

Ann Romney’s remarks came during an interview with Baltimore radio station WBAL, during which the host asked her, “And one of the things, Ann Romney, that folks talk about with your husband, Mitt Romney, and I’ve seen him in casual conversation-He comes off very smooth and okay. But sometimes he comes off stiff. Do you have to fight back some criticism, like ‘My husband isn’t stiff, OK?’”

Laughing, Ann Romney responded, “Well, you know, I guess we better unzip him and let the real Mitt Romney out because he is not!”

“You know, it is so funny to me that that is the perception out there. Because he is funny, he is engaging, he is witty,” said Ann Romney. “He is always playing jokes. When I met him as a teenager, he was the life of the party. And yet, he is also a very serious person and an accomplished person. And I think a lot of times, people see him in the debate setting.”

Ann, there’s a pill for that.

In a follow-up campaign video, Ann Romney tries to once again sell the family man angle (no mention of the dog on the car roof story). This too, gets weird.

She says of Willard, “I hate to say it, but often I had more than five sons. I had six sons, and he would be as mischievous and as naughty as the other boys.”

No doubt the opposition are reveling at the idea of running against Romney 2012: Unzip the naughty! At least it’s a better angle than the Etch-A-Sketch thing.
