I guess we can let those comments about Obama “throwing spears” from one Republican go, but there does seem to be a pattern:

Romney aides told BuzzFeed their polling indicates that Obama’s biggest vulnerability among Hispanics is that he’s viewed as a “weak leader.” In much of Latino culture, they explained, political leaders are expected to demonstrate a macho bravado

Yeah, the Romney campaign is so totally right — the culture of American Hispanics must be that they love the macho dictators whose countries many of them happily got the hell out of to come here. That’s why Castro is so big in South Florida.

Next up, Mitt and Paul Ryan campaign as masked wrestlers.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
