Also, he sings again

(Newser) – What a day for Mitt Romney. First he set off a brouhaha with his "I'm not concerned about the very poor" remark, then he got glitter-bombed (twice), and finally, he sang. Again. The first glitter-bombing took place at a stop in Minnesota, when a gay rights activist tossed a cup of the stuff on him as he approached the stage, reports the Washington Post. Romney laughed it off with this groaner: "Oh, I’ve got glitter in my hair. That’s not all that’s in my hair, I’ll tell you that. I glue it on every morning, whether I need to or not.”

Romney got hit again with glitter after his speech ended when he was signing autographs. (Two Mediaite videos are in the gallery.) And Michelle Obama will be happy to know that he belted out a verse of America the Beautiful, though this time he encouraged the audience to sing along. All that, "and he hadn't even made it to Las Vegas yet," writes Philip Rucker of the Post. (Read more Mitt Romney 2012 stories.)
