Reuben Glaser, a University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee freshman, noticed that presidential candidate Mitt Romney lacked a defining characteristic. "Ford fell down, Biden is Uncle Joe, and Obama is cool," he said. "Romney doesn't really have anything." So Glaser gave him something: a big head.

Glaser has been digitally minimizing Romney's facial features and posting it on Little Face Mitt, a Tumblr page that went viral in August.

Glaser, who voted in the Republican primary this year, says he has receives three or four user contributions a day, including a number from foreign fans in Ireland and Canada. He tells Yeas & Nays that there has been "costume interest" in Little Face Mitt, but "you would not believe how hard it is to get masks made."
