"I Christen Thee, the Flying WASP"

I hate to crib Cesca's site word for word, but there's simply no other way to put it: You just can't make this shit up.

From ABC News:

"Gov. Mitt Romney's campaign toasted its top donors Wednesday aboard a 150-foot yacht flying the flag of the Cayman Islands.

The floating party, hosted by a Florida developer on his yacht 'Cracker Bay,' was one of a dozen exclusive events meant to nurture those who have raised more than $1 million for Romney's bid.

'I think it's ironic they do this aboard a yacht that doesn't even pay its taxes,' said a woman who lives aboard a much smaller boat moored at the St. Petersburg Municipal Marina.

Romney's Cayman-based investments have come under fire during the campaign.

The event, attended by no more than 50 people, along with Romney relatives, including older brother Scott, appeared on no public calendars. ABC News obtained a schedule of the Romney campaign's 'Victory Council' and waited dockside to speak with members.

'It was a really nice event. These are good supporters,' said billionaire Wilbur Ross, an energy industry executive."

The campaign of Mitt Romney. On a yacht called the "Cracker Bay." Flying Cayman Islands flags.

I'm really beginning to think God writes for The Onion.

Teh Onion can't compete with these screwballs. The article about the opening 'Beating Of The Gay Marine'? Not, as is generally supposed, satire. Prediction.

Remember the good ol' days when a single gaffe could take down an entire campaign? I'm miss those days.
