Mitt Romney got some grief a few weeks back when, during a rally, he posed with a woman holding a sign that read, “No To Obama, Osama, and Chelsey’s Moma.” Romney told folks to get a sense of humor.

“I have a lot of pictures taken with people. I don’t really spend all that much time looking at the signs and the T-shirts and the buttons. I don’t have anything to say about a sign somebody else was holding.”

Now, popular celebrity site TMZ.com has a picture of Sen. Lindsey Graham, in fact, holding a similar sign.

While Mitt may try to downplay the sign, it can do nothing but help Lindsey and his buddy, Sen. John McCain, in their attempt to win back the favor of the party faithful. No doubt, the saddest thing is the clear misspelling of mama (on both signs). I can see the campaign slogans now: Republicans: Hard on Democratic leaders and terrorists. Stumped on basic spelling.
