THEY ALL LOOK ALIKE
At the fund-raiser for Mitt Romney at the posh 1818 Club [in Atlanta} on Friday, the candidate was making the introductions to the room.
Romney gestured to Ralph Reed and said, "Why it's good to see Gary Bauer here." (For the detached, Bauer is a former presidential candidate with ties, like Reed, to the Religious Right.)
Romney then caught himself. "Oh, I'm a little mixed up here,” he said. But Romney still couldn't place Reed's face -- and had to move on.
After the event, Romney approached Reed and apologized for misremembering him.
I guess wearing the Reagan mantle really is important to these GOP presidential candidates.
(Via Right Wing Watch, which adds: "And just what is Reed doing at a Romney fundraiser anyway? Is that any way to repay Rudy Giuliani for his support?")
