The Elephant in the Room

As a bicontinental dachshund, I'm well aware it's easy to make blunders in a foreign land. My mom once said in Italian that I have five anuses when she meant to say I was five years old.

U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney, whose family road trips are notorious to dog lovers, has made several blunders on his wotten waven overseas summer trip. I've thought of some explanations for Mitt (though I could never explain the dog on the car roof).

Yes, Mitt Romney did tell NBC's Brian Williams that he saw "disconcerting" signs about the preparations for the London Olympics. Too bad Brian Williams didn't give him a chance to explain what he really meant.


Yes, his press secretary did invite reporters to kiss his ass in Warsaw. But as Romney later explained, he was referring to his donkey.


Of course, both Romney and his press secretary failed to note that the donkey is a democratic symbol. Was that a Freudian slip, or just an elephant in the room?

  2. Mitt even annoyed the Conservatives here in the UK. It was observed in our press that Britain should be an easy date for a US politician - they just have to talk about the 'special relationship' and toss in a couple of admiring references to Churchill and we'll totally roll over. But he somehow managed to mess it up anyway!

  9. He could go to England and say he liked America's New England better and it still wouldn't be as embarassing as Obama bowing to every world leader he sees.
