Black eyes

"Mitt Romney knocked unconscious, suffers black eye during fall" (Garger).  Harry Reid received a similar beat-down, and was soon out of politics.  You have to wonder what specific thing prompted it.

Reid's tall tale got the full forensic work-up:  "Why Harry Reid’s Home Exercise Accident Story Does Not Add Up" (Leahy).  "The conspiracy theory around Harry Reid's exercise accident, explained" (Yglesias).  Utah isn't famous for its mob activity, but maybe Romney got his magic underwear on backwards.

With Romney, one's mind turns to his infamously bad relationship with Trump.  "Mitt Romney just did something that literally no senator has ever done before" (Millhiser).  The kind of people who do this kind of job, to a sitting senator (!), are also the kind of people who would return to finish the job should you start flapping your lips about it.
