Mitt and Anne indulge Kelly Ripa’s series of oddball fluff questions.

Daily Mail

Mitt revealed in an interview with Kelly Ripa that he is a big fan of Jersey Shore star Snooki, loves peanut butter and prefers to sleep naked.

Speaking about Snooki, he said: ‘Look how tiny she’s gotten. She’s lost weight. She’s energetic. Just her spark-plug personality is kind of fun.’

The interview was taped in New York today but will be aired on ABC’s Live! with Kelly and Michael on Tuesday.

He also likes to indulge in peanut butter sandwiches, chocolate milk and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Asked what he wears to bed he said: ‘As little as possible’, that is when he can get to sleep, for the Republican said he is often kept awake at night.

‘The best part of the campaign is all the people you meet day in and day out and their energy. At the and of the day, I have a hard time falling asleep just because of all the people I’ve met and all the enthusiasm they pass along.’

In the revealing interview, he also said he would like Gene Hackman to play him in a movie, and if he could have dinner with anyone, it would be Nelson Mandela.

Romney’s wife also appeared alongside the presidential candidate and recounted a story of walking in on George W. Bush getting a massage at the White House once. When meeting him in the elevator later he winked and said to her: ‘I look pretty good, don’t I?

Romney said Michelle Pfieffer would be a good actress to play Anne.

    Oddball fluff questions??

    I am sick and tired of the belittlement of the Presidency. These interviews diminish both the man and the office.

    Is does show they are human and at least now we know much more about Romney than we know about Obama to date.

    Tom Selleck would play me. Because of the striking physical similarities.

    zOMG!!1!! He’s so LIKEABLE! I really like this guy. I’d like to have a beer with him.

    If this pulls one voter to him that would have not voted or voted Obama, it was worth it. I just wish he didn’t have to do it.

    We can blame this inane questioning on Baba Walters.

    I’d like to think this is satire, but I see it’s coming out of a UK newspaper- the only journalists left in English speaking countries – so I guess it’s the real deal.

    Gag! It could lose Romney some votes.

    I thought he would be savvy enough to tactfully steer away from these kinds of questions or at least answer them in a clever way where they won’t come back to haunt him. I figure Kelly Ripa is just as big a libtard as all the rest.
