Tennessee Man Jealous of Mitt Romney

This reads like a "news" article from the Onion, but, sadly for Tennessee's image, it is a true story. Seems this handsome fellow, one Lowell Turpin of Claxton, Tennessee, looked at his girlfriend's Facebook page and saw that she had posted a picture of another man. In a jealous rage, Turpin threw his girlfriend's laptop against the wall and punched her in the face.

The other man? GOP presidential candidate, Mitt Romney. One shudders to think what Turpin would have done had his girlfriend been a Democrat and posted Obama's mug on her Facebook. The good news, I suppose, is that he wasn't carrying an M-16. That, and the fact that he's in jail.
