While Rafalca — the most-personable and least-embarrassing member of the Romney family — was busy doing America proud in Europe today, MoveOn.org released this web ad, featuring the world-famous dressage horse…
Okay, so, I have a number of questions concerning this ad…
First of all, that's not the real Rafalca, is it? Because I think that would be a stunning betrayal, and far too classless an act for the Rafalca I've come to know.
Also, how exactly is the amount of money that the Romney's spend on their Olympic-competing horse relevant? Am I supposed to get angry because multi-millionaires Mitt and Ann Romney have bunch of money to spend on something that they care about? I kinda knew that going in; that's sort of the definition of "multi-millionaire," isn't it? If the point is that I'm supposed to get mad at the Romneys for being rich, shouldn't I also get mad at Barack Obama for being rich?
Finally — and this is the biggest question — how did they get that horse to remember all its lines. And don't tell me that it's reading off a teleprompter, because I'm not so stupid as to believe that horses can read.

Should corporations be allowed to anonymously contribute to political campaigns? Of course they should. After all, the last time I checked, this was still America, and in America we believe in a free market where anyone can do anything they want with the money they got in a government bailout.

The great the about this country is that, although we have have very strong differences of opinion about politics, we're able to look at one another and see fellow Americans. We know that, even in the midst of a unpleasantly divisive election cycle, at the end of the day — regardless of where we stand on health care or abortion or whether or not the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was unconstitutional — we need to come together as a mob to grab a person with whom we disagree, throw her to the ground and "stomp her head"…
Politics… you can't live with it, you can't get away from the person who's trying to crush your skull under his heel because his friends are holding you down.
