EXCLUSIVE: Mitt Romney does NOT have a favorite Guns N’ Roses song

What do Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who was recently serving sandwiches to NH voters, and former Guns 'N Roses lead guitarist Slash have in common? Apparently, nothing much. (Photos courtesy of Ilya Mirman).

Yesterday, the mainstream media focused on action figure model Kelly Ayotte‘s endorsement of Mitt Romney.

What reporters sadly missed was a candid exchange between photographer Ilya Mirman and Romney about musical tastes.

Romney was serving a tray of BLT sandwiches from Jackie’s Diner in downtown Nashua, NH, mere steps away from City Hall, where John F. Kennedy launched his 1960 campaign for president. Here’s how the conversation went down:

Ilya: “Governor – What’s your favorite Guns N’ Roses song?”

Mitt: “Let me think…[thinks for a couple seconds] You know, I couldn’t give you one…But what I can give you is a great sandwich here!  They’re raw and unleashed!”

Ilya: [takes a small piece of bacon] “Thank you!”

The “Raw and Unleashed” reference is to a Saturday Night Live skit that makes fun of Romney for being too boring.

Romney was smart enough and honest enough not to say “Welcome to the Jungle” just to impress Ilya.
