Mexican Mitt?

Bureau of Trade scours the Web to find the world’s most unique merchandise for men. We’ll be featuring a daily find, paired with a notable piece of news — everything a man needs to get by.

Given Mitt Romney’s pale skin, wooden demeanor and irrepressible spiciness — the equivalent of a chilled globule of ranch dressing served on a Nilla wafer — we know what you’re assuming: that he’s Mexican, right?

Well, you happen to be correct.

Mitt’s father, George Romney, the man who would go on to become the governor of Michigan, was born at the polygamous Romney family compound in Chihuahua, in northern Mexico. (Great-grandfather Miles fled there with four wives in 1882 when the United States outlawed polygamy and Miles wanted to record some ranchera songs about it.)

Mitt wears his true colors on Twitter, where he self-identifies as being part of the “Juan percent.” To you, we say buena suerte in Arizona, hombre.
