So an hour or so before Manny Pacquiao headed to the ring to fight Marquez last night, he received a locker room visit from one of the giants of American politics: Mitt Romney. What words of inspiration did Romney have for Manny in the minutes before his death duel?
The New York Times's Greg Bishop informs us of the following:
Mitt Romney in Pacquiao locker room. "Hello Manny. I ran for president. I lost." Seriously.

Al Pacino, Mitt ain't. That quoted inspired Bishop to dub Romney 'The Cooler'.
And still through it all, Mitt looked genuinely shocked when Manny got KO'ed. You think he'd have known it was coming.
