Fittingly capturing the "going head-to-head" atmosphere of the 2012 presidential debates, Madame Tussauds in Washington, D.C. -- home of the Presidents Gallery -- has unveiled photos featuring sculpted clay head molds of the two presidential candidates, Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, facing off.
"No matter your party affiliation, right now more than ever is an exciting time in American politics," said Dan Rogoski, general manager of the museum, home to wax figures of all 44 presidents.
"If Mitt Romney wins the election, the Presidents Gallery ... will immortalize him in wax and add his figure to the gallery, so a vote for Mitt Romney is a vote for his wax figure," Rogoski added.
How do you tell the difference between the real Romney and the wax Romney? The wax Romney is warm and personable.
Woody or wouldn't he?
New York Jets owner Woody Johnson said that if asked to choose, Mitt Romney winning the presidential election in November is a bigger priority than his NFL team having a winning season.
Johnson said, "I think you always have to put country first," when asked what is more important to him.
Johnson has publicly backed the Republican presidential candidate and said that it's "very, very important" for Americans and "our kids and grandkids" that Romney win the election.
But Johnson probably also believes that anyone who allows their children to watch the Chiefs should be hotlined.
What a country
Almost 2,400 people who received unemployment insurance in 2009 lived in households with annual incomes of $1 million or more, according to the Congressional Research Service.
And 954,000 households earning more than $100,000 during the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression also reported receiving unemployment benefits.
Eliminating those payments to high earners is one idea being considered as U.S. lawmakers struggle to curb a projected $1.1 trillion deficit.
"Sending millionaires unemployment checks is a case study in out-of-control spending," said Sen. Tom Coburn.
You want another case study? Just look at Congress.
Politics makes strange bedfellows
An argument over the 2012 election led to a domestic battery charge for a Hollywood man who struck his wife after yelling at her "about Obama and Romney."
Peter Schwartz, 74, was arrested after Schwartz's 47-year-old wife told police the two had gotten into an argument about politics.
Judge John Hurley told Schwartz to stay 500 feet away from his wife, stay away from guns and ammunition, and not talk politics with her.
Yet Schwartz told the judge: "I love this woman more than my own life."
Awwww. Elections are so romantic.
