New ad from formerly relevant group: Romney’s talking horse certainly is rich and snooty

posted at 4:26 pm on August 2, 2012 by Allahpundit

Confession: A little part of me appreciates just how far over the top they’re willing to go here. Using Ann Romney’s horse to try to drive a cheap class wedge among voters is shameless, but if you’re going to be shameless, you should own it. Talking horse + ludicrously snobby country club accent = full ownage. Well done, MoveOn. It’s brilliant ads like this that explain why Americans have embraced the liberal agenda so completely.

The horse was in eighth place provisionally at the Olympics this morning. If you think the political news cycle is dumb and boring right now, imagine the media’s reaction if Rafalca ends up medaling. Should have waited to take my vacation this year, alas.

John F’n Kerry has to have a polo horse or two. Doesn’t anyone have pictures?

i’m just now getting thru tweets etc. and saw that absurd poll by Pew

the Dim skew has been widely noted…but the strange thing is things like college grad + is very overweight…Blacks are overweight, Hispanics are underweight

they didn’t even try to re-weight categories to fit census data. I mean, that’s basic….seriously trashy poll, and not just because of the laughable D skew

Pew has always been a joke, they are the worst, most biased and corrupt of the pollsters out there.

$77K a year for Rafalca is cheap compared to what Moochelle spent reigning on a plane in Spain, or what the Tiger Woods wannabe spent on tee parties and sand traps. For $77K you can’t even get dinner for two at an Obama fundraiser!

Five bucks says Obama and Michelle don’t know which side of the horse to get on from. Fifteen says they don’t know which end to feed.

Who knows?… If Obama gets another term maybe he will see to it that everyone can own a horse. Hay Stamps for all!

Having been forced for the last 4 years or so, to listen to liberal crap spewed from a horse’s “other end”, it’s kind of refreshing to see one face to face. And, she’s looking pretty healthy I might add, wonder if their next ad will feature Kim Cattrall.

John was a seafarer, remember his yacht and his tax evasion? For christ’s sakes, the MSM pretty much gave him a pass–all the while he was a tax evader and had an expensive hobby. Mitt and Anne rolled into one!

This election is an f’ing Seinfeld episode. It is about, literally, nothing that matters.

This is one stupid ad.

Seriously though, something needs to be done about those snooty horse people.

Just who do they think they are?

Isn’t she only a third owner? I used to be on the show circuit and still have 2 horses. Like any other hobby, it can be expensive depending on how much you are into it. A lot of horse owners perform dressage, this isn’t that big a deal.
