The next big prize in the GOP primaries is Michigan, one of Mitt Romney’s five home states (along with MA, NH, UT, and CA). He’s released an ad showing him driving around in a fancy Chrysler while he talks about how much he loves Michigan, and all. Here’s the ad:

The biggest giveaway is the air vents, which are tall and skinny in the 300, but are sort of square-shaped in the 200. You can see that the 300 is an exact match for what Romney is driving; the 200 is not.
By the way, I don’t know nearly enough about cars to have caught this myself. An alert reader named David Shorr spotted it and passed it along – thanks David!
