Mitt Romney [MA's very virile Republican Governor] actually had an ad where he was seen frolicking on a raft in swim trunks with his very virile sons, while a voice in the background blathers about his family. Mitt looks great in a bathing suit, especially for a 50+ guy. His Democratic rival, Shannon O'Brien, who's an admitted Lesbian and devotee of Dunkin' Donuts, raised a hue and a cry, Mitt kept running the ads. He's Governor and she's a question on the Massachusetts Edition of Trivial Pursuit. Turnabout is fair play; they tried to imply that he was unfit to be Massachusetts Governor because Mormons were weird. As opposed to adherents of Sappho.
There was an incident a few years ago at a public appearance of his, in which a group of demonstrators tried to disrupt the event. One of them even managed to get on the dais where Chretien was speaking, and attempted to assault him.
Chretien must have flashed back to the hockey days of his youth, because he began to administer a thorough beating on the assailant before his security staff intervened and dragged the guy away.
