What If Every Romantic Comedy Starred Mitt Romney, One Tumblr Dares To Ask

Were Two Weeks Notice to star Sandra Bullock and Mitt Romney, instead of the king of dappishly fantastical follies, Hugh Grant, it would no longer be about…whatever Two Weeks Notice was about. The upper middle class, maybe? I remember Mike Piazza showing up at some point.
But I digress: were Mr. 47% to appear in the film, the premise would be, “An ambitious billionaire tries to erase his pink slip past by convincing the people he loves that someday he’ll be the job creator he was meant to be.” Such is the premise of Rom Com, via Jessica Misener, a brilliantly simple Tumblr that recasts Romney as the leading man in various romantic comedies.
It’s also a nice reminder that Katherine Heigl is the WORST.
