    Here comes Mini-Doosh!!

    Mitt's son has reportedly been approached by Republican officials about the possibility of running in an April special election to fill John Kerry's seat.

    The Boston Herald reports that Tagg Romney, 42, whose father Mitt recently lost his bid to supplant Barack Obama as president of the United States, is considering a run for the vacated seat in an April 30 special election.

    Tagg, Mitt's eldest son and a father of six, currently runs the venture capital firm Solamere, though he's no stranger to politics. He was heavily involved in both of his father's presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2012. He shouldn't count on name recognition alone, though: Mitt lost Massachusetts by 23 points to Barack Obama in last year's election.

    GOP bigwigs aren't stopping at one Romney, however. According to the same Herald report, Republican brass are also inquiring about the possibility that Tagg's mother and Mitt's wife Ann would run for the seat. They're faced with presenting a formidable Republican challenger to Democratic Reps. Ed Markey and Stephen Lynch, who have both announced their candidacy for the April election.

    ****

    I look forward to hearing the stupid things that pour out of the mouths of Mini-Doosh and Dooshette.
