As it turns out, photos of Romney’s night at the GOP Cuyahoga County Lincoln Day Dinner were pretty scarce. For some reason, the pictures that did circulate were mostly taken in the kitchen. In light of President’s Day weekend, and the fact the contrast caught our eye (…did someone say, two Americas?), we thought we’d share.
Of the two shots below, the first made it to Yahoo and the second was taken and published by the local Plain Dealer.
