Does Target Know Something About the Presidential Election We Don’t?

Michael Schneider of TV Guide Magazine spotted these Mitt Romney masks at a Los Angeles-area Target store. They are labeled, “Mr. President,” which strikes us as a bit premature, as the presidential election hasn’t happened yet.

As Schneider points out, “Regardless of who wins the upcoming election, as of October 31, 2012, Barack Obama is Mr. President. And he does not look like this.”

Further research reveals that Target is also selling “Mr. President” masks that look like Obama, for a politically balanced, if not factually accurate, Halloween section. Neither makes for a particularly creative costume, though. We suggest “binders full of women” or “Obamacare death panels.”
