The "Romey Boys" appear on Conan
The five Romney boys did in fact pop up on Conan Wednesday night. Entertainment Weekly writes, "Tagg, Matt, Josh, Ben and Craig stopped by the program in an attempt to humanize their dad. Conan O'Brien joked about the number of them right off the bat, passing around name tags and pointing out that he felt like the "Romney Boys", as the press calls them, were better suited to a boy band at the mall than the campaign trail. The five took the jokes in stride and came prepared with stories about their dad from when they were kids. The big takeaway: Mitt Romney loves pranks. In the funniest moment (video above), they shared a campaign highlight from when Gov. Romney was hoping for an endorsement from Arnold Schwarzenegger. The brothers had a machine that makes your voice sound like Arnold’s, and called their dad asking ridiculous questions like, “Who is your daddy?” Mitt did not seem amused.
