Mitt Romney hopefully will never--er--may never become president, but he can take consolation in the fact that he's helping horny Americans have safe sex--albeit inadvertently. A condom company has just unveiled--or rather unwrapped--a new product, a prophylactic named after the 2012 Republican presidential hopeful.
Yes, apparently without Mitt Romney's permission, approval, or even knowledge, a condom company has created the Mitt Romney rubber, AKA the Romney Love Glove. The product is now being sold on the company's website at $5.00 a pop (pun definitely intended). According to TMZ, the condom company is the same outfit that launched the Obama condom back in the day. And according to the firm's head honcho, his right to manufacture Romney condoms is protected by the First Amendment. That's a pretty interesting connection--condoms and free speech. It's doubtful that old Mitt would approve but it doesn't really matter. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the condom company's favor in a similar situation some time ago.
So, there you have it. The Mitt Romney condoms are available so get them while they're hot. According to the company's CEO, the Romney "love glove" is being marketed to "anyone with an 'elitist penis.' [Plus they're] tax-free so even the poor can afford them."
