Mitt Romney: Losing “Likes”, Gaining Tattoos

Mitt Romney must have had quite a few fair-weather supporters during his campaign, because it looks like since the election, he’s lost thousands upon thousands of Facebook fans. He’s gained, however, a fan so hardcore he was willing to tattoo it all over his face.

If you keep a close eye on Romney’s Facebook page, you can see the “likes” dropping off over a matter of minutes; if you don’t have the patience for that, simply head over to DisappearingRomney.com, where you can watch his supporters fall off in real-time.

In spite of the fallout Romney can count on some die-hard supporters, including one guy who auctioned off his face for the good of Romney’s campaign and says he doesn’t regret it one bit.

Eric Hartsburg got the bids up to $5,000 on Ebay before facing his fate: tattooing Romney’s logo on the side of his face. And although he says he was disappointed, obviously, by the election’s results, he defends his decision by saying he was trying to inject some fun into the serious business of politics.

“I’ve gotten a lot of negative stuff, a lot of ‘F U’s,’” said Hartsburg. “It’s all kinds of ribbage, man. … ‘Your guy lost!’ ‘What are you going to do now?’ I’m a tattoo guy, and it was something fun….I was trying to make politics fun. I didn’t change no lives; I’m no hero. But I shed blood for this campaign, and I’m glad to know that I did all that I could.”
