It's Mitt Romney's day off, and so he's going shopping with a press pool in tow. As you do.

The Associated Press snapped pics of Romney leaving Hunters Shop 'n Save, where you can see in his cart 12-packs of caffeine-free Wild Cherry Diet Pepsi and Diet Coke, plus the Poland Spring bottled water.

ABC News also says he bought "hardware stuff" and insect repellant at Bradley's Hardware Store and apologized to a woman whose car was blocked by his motorcade.

"Hardware stuff," by the way, is a direct quote from Romney when the reporter asked him what he bought at the hardware store. I wonder if Romney runs his own errands when he's not being followed by a press pool?
