Indiana's Eric Hartsburg is a professional wrestler for Platinum Worldwide. He goes by the ring-name Erico. This week, he auctioned off a 5-by-2 chunk of his face for a Mitt Romney “R” campaign logo tattoo. The price? $15,000. Part of me kinda hopes it was super PAC money, just because. A few pull-quotes from his interview with ABC News:

“I am a registered Republican and a Romney supporter,” Hartsburg said. “I didn't mind getting this tattoo because it is something that I could live with and it's something that I believe in.”

“I want young people to know that it's O.K. to be young, and it's O.K. to be a Republican. You don't have to be rich or elderly to be labeled as a Republican, and I want everyone to know that.”

I'm sure Republicans everywhere will take lots of pride in Erico's permanent face ink in, say, 12 years.
