Mitt Romney's UM "Brownface" Becomes a Meme

Early this week, Mitt Romney showed up at the Univision event at the University of Miami aimed at Hispanic voters with a suspiciously orange tint to his skin. Some just laughed at his Charlie Crist-like fake tan job, but others accused him wearing "brownface" to appeal to Latinos. Of course, because this is the internet, spray-tanned Romney inspired people to fire up Photoshop and turn the tan into a meme.

Here's a few of our favorites:

The Romney campaign has even Charlie Crist-ized Marco Rubio in his television ads pimping for Romney/Ryan.  What is up with all the orange?

Government Salaries, Healthcare, & Retirement Benefits: “The average representative makes $174K a year, while the average American household makes $50K. In 2009, 261 of the 535 members of Congress were millionaires. In short, our federal lawmakers are nine times richer than the average American. They vote on their own raises, healthcare, and pension plans, and we are left with the bill. it time for some recalls . the gop are too dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it -- that that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. (They vote on their own raises, healthcare, and pension plans, and we are left with the bill. ,Members of Congress sleeping in the office are thus playing on the edge to eek out even more compensation from the taxpayer. They convert use of a space -- that we have paid for -- intended for work into living space as they avoid rent)

Of course if it was the other way around and people wanted to rag on Obama they'd be automatically labeled as racist.
