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.
