In case you weren't aware, Mitt Romney won a big victory in the Michigan primary last night. Willard "Mitt" Romney was actually born in Michigan, which got me wondering. Did his nickname come from the fact that Michigan looks a lot like an oven mitt? Lets compare:
This is Michigan...
...and this is an oven "mitt".
Coincidence that Romney was able to get a big win? Its too bad there's no candidate nicknamed "Rectangle" because then we could see how well they'd perform in Wyoming and Colorado and we'd have a better idea of how much this contributes to scoring votes for a candidate.
