Downton Abbey meets Mitt Romney


If Julian Fellowes was writing the script for the Republican primary, right about now Mitt Romney would be asking the GOP à la Matthew to Lady Mary in Season 1, “Do you love me enough to spend your life with me?”

It remains to be seen whether they do. Some fine folks over at NY Mag saw enough of the parallels between the defiantly upstairs candidate with no below-stairs cred and the mega hit, Downton Abbey. We only wish the Dowager Countess was moderating the next debate, but that would involve a fight with an American, and we’d like to save that for next season when Shirley MacLaine joins the cast.
