Questions about Gov. Romney being a unicorn

The presidential campaign of former Mass. governor Mitt Romney has been hit with a troublesome and quite possibly disqualifying accusation--that he might be a unicorn. is circulating an on-line petition asking the Arizona Secretary of State (who is currently investigating President Obama's birth records) to investigate Gov. Romney's non-unicorn bonafides. The petition asks
What about the persistent rumors that Mitt Romney is in fact, a unicorn?  There has never been a conclusive DNA test proving that Mitt Romney is not a unicorn.  We have never seen him without his hair -- hair that could be covering up a horn

No, we cannot prove it.  But we cannot prove that it is not the case.  And if Mitt Romney is or may be a unicorn, he is not Constitutionally qualified to be president.
Acceptable proof on this matter would consist of a DNA sample from Gov. Romney and a DNA sample from a unicorn. With those samples, establishing the dissimilarities (assuming that there are any) would be straightforward.

America is at a cross-roads, and the focus of the coming election must be on jobs and economic growth. The question about whether Gov. Romney is actually a unicorn is an unwelcome and unnecessary distraction in this important process--but it is a question that Gov. Romney should have already put to rest.

For reasons that only he can comprehend, Gov. Romney has not been forthcoming on this matter. Thank goodness there is an Arizona Secretary of State who is capable of leading a complete and impartial investigation.
