Love in Tampa

Updated 1:48 p.m. | Move over kiss-cam engagements and using a plane to write out your proposal against a clear blue sky. For the young, conservative set, the first step in making your love legal is onstage in front of hundreds of GOP delegates and thousands of political reporters.

Because nothing says true love like asking someone to marry you at the Republican convention in Tampa, Fla., in front of a bunch of snarktastic strangers. Le sigh. At least that proved to be true for the Republican National Convention’s production manager and his newly engaged production coordinator, Laura Bowman. He dropped to one knee in front of her on the stage, while “Laura Bowman, will you marry me?” flashed on the big screens. She said yes.

USA Today’s Susan Davis caught the whole geekishly sweet moment on her camera video thingy.

Congratulations, you crazy kids.
