Gawker, the website that hasn't yet gotten the memo that early naughts LOLcat-snark is passé, is shouting from the rooftops about its Fox mole. Their big scoop? Mitt Romney ... likes ... horses.
The video above is of Mitt Romney and Sean Hannity bantering before the taping of an interview for the "Hannity Vegas Forum" in February. Of note: Romney professes his and his wife Ann's well-known love of horseriding, praising the qualities of the "Austrian Warmbloods" that his wife rides—the are "dressage" horses, he notes—while maintaining his own preference for the "smoother gait" of his own "Missouri foxtrotter."
That right there is on par with 300 dead Mexicans from Fast and Furious, or Solyndra.
Kudos to our virtual equivalent of a dive bar bathroom though; they try hard to wring water from a stone and get the most from their "mole" investment:
Now there's nothing wrong with Mitt and his wife loving horseback riding. But remember this video next time Romney attacks Obama for golfing. The inherent elitism and snootiness of golf is NOTHING compared to competitive horseback riding. And I think Mitt loses points with the GOP base for his correct pronunciation of dressage. To GOP-voter ears it sounds not only gay, but even worse, French.
Whenever Obama goes for his frillionth round of golf or his 18th (19th? 20th?) vacation, remember that being a successful self-sustainer like Romney is bad--and think of Romney's dressage horses. Romney says "dressage" correctly and it's "gay." (France has a conservative President, which hardly runs off the right, but I digress.) Homosexual pejoratives are funny to liberals, just like trashing Asians is, too. Had he said it incorrectly, they'd have called him a hick.
I don't know that I buy the story that Gawker has a mole; the video isn't even worth a viewing. Gawker is playing the "gay" thing to the hilt, too.
"Remember when Gawker used to be funny?" said no one ever.
