Play Dress Up With Mitt Romney!
Here at The National Memo, we don’t see why tMitt should have all the fun. So we imagined how the Massachusetts master of disguise would look in some of his favorite outfits:

Romney liked to dress up in a Michigan State Trooper’s uniform and pull over unsuspecting motorists as a college student. As his Stanford classmate Robin Madden recalls “We all thought, ‘Wow, that’s pretty creepy.’”
Today Romney wants to fire our firemen, but while he was in high school he once burst into a local store late at night dressed in a full fireman’s uniform, swinging a fire ax over his head and screaming “where’s the fire?”
In another “hilarious” prank, Romney charged into a store dressed “gangland fashion,” declared “this is a stickup,” and sprayed the shop with sparks from his toy Tommy gun.
Romney has pretended to be a Tea Party loyalist ever since he decided that being a “progressive” wouldn’t win him the Republican presidential nomination.
Romney has said that “I longed in many respects to actually be in Vietnam” during the war — although he actually avoided the draft while performing Mormon missionary work and residing at a French palace.
