BRING ON THE DANCING HORSES  12:02 pm July 18, 2012

Democrats Alienate Pony-Loving 12-Year-Old Voters With New Horsey Ad

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

How impressive is the Olympic sport of “dressage”? Well, maybe more impressive than the synchronized ribbon-twirling in rhythmic gymnastics. But that is probably it! So here is some “dressage” for you, and some “Mitt Romney” for you, and a wee reminder that the Romneys wrote $77,000 in horsecare off their taxes. (AT LEAST THE TAXES THAT WE ARE ALLOWED TO KNOW ABOUT.) Do stick through the video at least through the Rick Santorum cameo. Oh man we miss that guy.

Now, to wash all that silliness out of your eyeballs, please have some high school!

You are welcome, America.

Hey! I submitted that!

With a better idea for a title, I should add.

OW! My arm!

I'll bite, what your your title?

freakishlywrong July 18, 2012 at 12:06 pm

Yes, the Kenyan usurper is indeed elitist and out of touch.

freakishlywrong July 18, 2012 at 12:06 pm

One wonders how much the horseshit that comes out of their mouths is worth in tax deductions.

Barb July 18, 2012 at 12:06 pm

The singer's hair-do made me miss my mom. The horse just made me crave Jell-o.

Jus_Wonderin July 18, 2012 at 1:12 pm

This is an odd coincidence, I think. I was just, prior to reading this, looking for my Elmer's Glue.

Nah, Barry's trying to appeal to the Brony* voters.

I thought all those guys were either paultards and/or have had their voting rights removed.

So that's what David Vitter's calling his hobby now.

Doktor Zoom July 18, 2012 at 12:17 pm

Kid Zoom can be relied upon to break into smirking chuckles at the mention of "Derpy Hooves"

(oh, dear…would that be "shmuckles"?)

MissTaken July 18, 2012 at 12:29 pm

I'm pretty sure Derpy Hooves is running the Mittens campaign. Mmm….muffins.

SayItWithWookies July 18, 2012 at 12:08 pm

Why does Mitt torture horses by making them do prissy prancy nonsense? Also, the blind trust he talks about — that's the one managed by his wife, right? I'm sure she never lets him discuss it, either.

freakishlywrong July 18, 2012 at 12:21 pm

They're too hard to strap to the top of the car.

va_real July 18, 2012 at 12:08 pm

I would vote for Ian McCulloch, but I heard he was born in Kenya….

coolhandnuke July 18, 2012 at 12:20 pm

…and he hangs out with one of those Donnie Darkies.

BigSkullF*ckingDog July 18, 2012 at 12:08 pm

I hope that Mitten's horse had a good time at the prom for $77,000!

coolhandnuke July 18, 2012 at 12:08 pm

"Echo Chamber and the Bogeymen" will be headlining the Tampa convention.

Well, there goes the Brony vote, Hopey.

SorosBot July 18, 2012 at 12:09 pm

At least in the "sports" of rhythmic gymnastics and ice dancing, the medal actually goes to the living creatures that do the actual work.

hagajim July 18, 2012 at 12:10 pm

$77K for horse care….what the hell does he pay his Nannies?

Oblios_Cap July 18, 2012 at 12:17 pm

They're illegals and probably only get a small room to share and one meal a day.

actor212 July 18, 2012 at 12:20 pm

They can't be illegals! He's running for President, for Pete's sake!

not that Dewey July 18, 2012 at 12:43 pm

No cots or lanterns?

Chow Yun Flat July 18, 2012 at 12:18 pm

A lot less.

Geminisunmars July 18, 2012 at 12:27 pm

What does minimum wage come to, per annum?

ChuckieJesus July 18, 2012 at 1:16 pm

Via teh Googz: US$ 7.25 per Hour (January 1, 2012)
Utah, Minimum wage

$7.25 an hour = $290 a week before taxes
times an impossible 52 week run (because there's a lot of holidays, etc.)

$15,080 before taxes if you're overly optimistic about how many hours you can get in a year.

Also, too via this handy dandy calculator

In 2010, Mitt Romney made $15080 in 6 hours 5 minutes and 54 seconds.

It would take you 1436 years 5 months 4 days 8 hours 56 minutes and 58 seconds to make what Mitt made in 2010.

Geminisunmars July 18, 2012 at 1:38 pm

Well now I'm even more pissed. (but thanks for the links and figuring.)

Lascauxcaveman July 18, 2012 at 1:11 pm

It warms my heart that Mitt's (apparently tax deductible?) horse expenses are considerably higher than my household's annual gross income, with two full-time earners.

Those better be some happy fucking horses. Even if they are forced to do silly horse-dancing tricks.

DemmeFatale July 18, 2012 at 12:10 pm

Talk about fast and furious!!
Keep bringin' it Dems!

Hera Sent Me July 18, 2012 at 12:10 pm

"Romney writes off more on his taxes caring for his dancing horse than most American households make."

Try to dance your way around that one, Mitt.

Texan_Bulldog July 18, 2012 at 12:10 pm

Ha ha…nothing like making Mittens look shifty, evasive and like a glorified dandy all in one ad.

smashedinhat July 18, 2012 at 12:11 pm

I like horses. Can I get some help over here please? Little help!

SayItWithWookies July 18, 2012 at 12:14 pm

We won't get foaled again!

(Meet the new hoss…same as the old hoss)

Lascauxcaveman July 18, 2012 at 1:14 pm

Mitt would like to take this discussion on a different tack.

(This would work too if the subject were his expensive sailboat.)

eggsacklywright July 18, 2012 at 12:22 pm

You are brilliant.

eggsacklywright July 18, 2012 at 12:20 pm

I'll ask Clyde and Dale.

SorosBot July 18, 2012 at 12:25 pm

Sorry, Mitt's real name is Willard, not Wilbur.

WhatTheHeck July 18, 2012 at 12:25 pm

Why, are you the Governor of Mane?

smashedinhat July 18, 2012 at 12:37 pm

I love you all so much I will sign all your tax receipts. And I mean "all".

Jus_Wonderin July 18, 2012 at 1:01 pm

Well, we all do have lunch together everyday. I deduct that as a business expense.

Vecchiojohn July 18, 2012 at 1:15 pm

Trying to curry favor with us, eh?

smashedinhat July 18, 2012 at 1:33 pm

My P-value drops steadily, so I'll be glue soon. Nice knowing y"all!

Vecchiojohn July 18, 2012 at 6:49 pm

I have a very small p-ness but am am I downhearted?

Oblios_Cap July 18, 2012 at 12:11 pm

$77,000 sure buys a lot of oats! It's better to give to the dressage horse than to use it to feed hungry people.

Generation[redacted] July 18, 2012 at 12:44 pm

Only dirty hippies eat oats. Real murkins eat the all grease denny's breakfast special!

freakishlywrong July 18, 2012 at 12:12 pm

Maybe if we all collectively wish for a time machine, we'll magically get one and we can share it, and spare ourselves all this horseshit. Any one else just fucking over it already?

sullivanst July 18, 2012 at 12:34 pm

I think there may be some Wonkers planning to fuck over this ad…

mayor_quimby July 18, 2012 at 1:00 pm

I can't wait to just get to the election and get it over with. I live in a solidly red state, so my vote won't make a difference. Just gonna vote and give some of my whore dollars to the campaign.

JustPixelz July 18, 2012 at 12:12 pm

A lot of the video only showed the back of the horse. And they kept cutting away to that arena.

Hammiepants July 18, 2012 at 12:12 pm

According to the My Little Pony name generator, Mitt's My Little Pony Name is Twisted Rose. I have no idea what that means, but I'm throwing it out there.

SorosBot July 18, 2012 at 12:17 pm

A metal supergroup formed by former members of Twisted Sister and Guns 'N Roses?

sullivanst July 18, 2012 at 12:38 pm

Wrong hair.

SexySmurf July 18, 2012 at 12:13 pm

Fun fact about horsies: When a female horse becomes pregnant she has sex with every male in the herd; if she doesn't, she self-aborts the fetus. This is because male horses are extremely territorial and will stomp any pony that they think isn't theirs to death.

Hey, that fact wasn't fun at all!

eggsacklywright July 18, 2012 at 12:33 pm

My Little Pony meets Godzilla.

Fox n Fiends July 18, 2012 at 12:47 pm

Wow just like my high school!

Lascauxcaveman July 18, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Were you a mare or a stallion?

SayItWithWookies July 18, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Wasilla?

Jus_Wonderin July 18, 2012 at 1:03 pm

I remember that time my ex broke a nail. Yeah, well, it was almost as much "fun".

Goonemeritus July 18, 2012 at 12:14 pm

Dressage is cool but I would have figured him for more of a Fox Hunting guy.

Callyson July 18, 2012 at 12:14 pm

Oh, that look of fear in Mittens' eyes…

Geminisunmars July 18, 2012 at 12:29 pm

It's a real turn-on, isn't it.

sullivanst July 18, 2012 at 12:59 pm

"That audience is full of plebes. And they're far too close."

Lascauxcaveman July 18, 2012 at 1:20 pm

If Hopey's video producers keep up this pace, Mitt will eventually get to the point of not worrying so much about losing the election, but rather ending up on the wrong end of pitchforks & torches deal.

Nice to see the good guys playing a little hardball, for once.

bikerlaureate July 18, 2012 at 4:25 pm

Funny how human Santorum looks compared to Romney. Smart move to keep him in the ad. And that laugh of Romney's, omg

sullivanst July 18, 2012 at 12:38 pm

Santorum always reminds me of Will Arnett, so yeah, I guess that alien he plays in the Hulu commercials still looks human compared to Rmoney.

PuckStopsHere July 18, 2012 at 12:17 pm

You can say what you want to, but I, for one, am not prepared to see my country's ass kicked in horse dancing!

SorosBot July 18, 2012 at 12:18 pm

Were baby horses included in the child sex ring Mitt still hasn't denied investing in?

eggsacklywright July 18, 2012 at 12:38 pm

He was attracted to their coltish behavior. And the Cantor-ing.

Dukakis is laughing through his helmet somewhere while driving his tank.

Doktor Zoom July 18, 2012 at 12:26 pm

If only he didn't have to wear that Snoopy helmet…

Oblios_Cap July 18, 2012 at 12:21 pm

Willard certainly takes smarminess to heights hithertofore unimagined.

Serolf_Divad July 18, 2012 at 12:22 pm

Remember when the GOP ridiculed Mike Dukakis for riding around in a tank?

Payback's a bitch, GOP bitches!

SorosBot July 18, 2012 at 12:24 pm

And yet, when Bush tried an even sillier similar stunt with a plane the media claimed he was all tough and manly.

SoBeach July 18, 2012 at 12:24 pm

I hope someone gets Mitt in a quiet room and points out that his $77,000 write-off for his horsies is more than the average family makes in an entire year. Because saying it in public would be gauche and class warfare-y.

Preferred Customer July 18, 2012 at 1:04 pm

Bah. It's less than a quarter of what he made on speaking fees, and he's already explained that that wasn't very much.

Doktor Zoom July 18, 2012 at 12:25 pm

I knew some guys who were into dressage in college, and they insisted it was totally NOT gay at all.

sullivanst July 18, 2012 at 12:53 pm

I'm sure having constantly to explain how it was not gay was a pain in the ass.

Vecchiojohn July 18, 2012 at 1:19 pm

I've been waiting for a chance to make that joke and you beat me to it. Damn you, Zoom! You haven't heard the last of this. (Exit, jowls shaking in fury.)

natoslug July 18, 2012 at 2:51 pm

I'm pretty sure it was only gay for the one who played the pony.

Wilcoxyz July 18, 2012 at 12:25 pm

Santorum thought Romney was going to marry the horse. That makes Rafalco a dependent, so no problems with the tax deduction.

va_real July 18, 2012 at 12:28 pm

Foal in one!

Mittens Howell, III July 18, 2012 at 12:29 pm

Romney's so mad at this he's just walking around spitting silver spoons at his campaign staff.

sullivanst July 18, 2012 at 12:58 pm

Mittens' inherited wealth and gaffe-prone nature make me miss Ann Richards.

bobbert July 18, 2012 at 5:46 pm

Haha.

sharethegrief July 18, 2012 at 12:29 pm

Obama's campaign is turning Mitt into a gelding right now.

ChernobylSoup July 18, 2012 at 12:29 pm

Romney camp responds with footage of Obama sinking a 3-pointer; doesn't understand why it's not effective.

sezme July 18, 2012 at 12:31 pm

I saw Echo and Bunnymen live in about 1985. Ian McCullough played with himself onstage. My girlfriend enjoyed the concert. I wondered why he couldn't at least wait until he was back in his hotel room.

RadioSlut July 18, 2012 at 12:35 pm

Spare us the cutter.

coolhandnuke July 18, 2012 at 12:37 pm

He was covering the "Circle Jerks."

Lascauxcaveman July 18, 2012 at 1:24 pm

Or Michael Jackson.

UnholyMoses July 18, 2012 at 12:33 pm

Ya know … I don't even have a car with AC during the worst heatwave of my lifetime, need about $1K to get the teeth of my autistic/Tourette's having son fixed, and would love to finally pay off medical bills from three years ago that total a whopping $400. Oh, and our house needs a new roof, a water heater, and $30K in work to keep the creek from running through the center of aforementioned house (well … if it ever rains again).

And yet I consider myself lucky 'cause I have a job and a bit of health insurance.

Meanwhile, this out-of-touch fuckfaced asshole deducts nearly six figures for a horse.

Not spends that much.

Deducts that much.

Median household income in America as of 2011: $51,914.

So, yeah, I'm certain that deducting 50% more than that for a goddamn horse is something to which most Americans can relate, and is making millions think to themselves, "That's the guy who understands my situation and will make it better."

Eat the rich, indeed …

ChernobylSoup July 18, 2012 at 12:43 pm

May the creek that washes through your house flow with wine, jewels, and the skulls of Republicans.

UnholyMoses July 18, 2012 at 12:50 pm

At this point, I'll take just enough to get the kid's teeth and the creek fixed. Oh, and a downpayment on a used car with AC.

I can earn the rest.

Though the skulls would look nice on my mantle …

Jus_Wonderin July 18, 2012 at 1:06 pm

YOU HAVE A MANTLE!!!!

UnholyMoses July 18, 2012 at 1:10 pm

Honestly?

No. No we don't.

But I am considering having the builder retroactively install one.

sullivanst July 18, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Though the skulls would look nice on my mantle …

Also, easily accessible for fucking.

UnholyMoses July 18, 2012 at 1:22 pm

I damn near had mac and cheese come out my nose …

which is odd, since I haven't had any for two days.

jodyleek July 18, 2012 at 12:43 pm

I hear ya, Moses. Right down to the autistic son (have one of those myself). Hugs to you 'cause I certainly feel and live your pain.

I hear the rich go well with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.

UnholyMoses July 18, 2012 at 12:50 pm

Thanks. And right back atchya!

sezme July 18, 2012 at 12:52 pm

And ask the French what to do with their horses.

jodyleek July 18, 2012 at 1:15 pm

Mmmmm! Pony Baloney!

freakishlywrong July 18, 2012 at 12:55 pm

Haven't you heard? Conservatives don't have autistic children or houses that could possibly flood, you librul. (I feel your pain).

Preferred Customer July 18, 2012 at 1:04 pm

Have you thought about opening a stable?

BerkeleyBear July 18, 2012 at 1:13 pm

Yeah, dental work on kids with developmental disabilities is a bear (my son not only is autistic but he got his mom's teeth, which are terrible – prone to cavities, some adult teeth not growing in, etc.) For those who don't see a connection, one big issue is that they generally can't sit still and have to go under general sedation, which blows the cost up. We found one guy who did great work in Indiana, but it still cost us a shit load of money (3 grand or so, and that was 7 years ago). Just grateful that we haven't had a repeat of that problem of late.

UnholyMoses July 18, 2012 at 1:22 pm

((hugs))

Thanks for sharing that — many might not know why it's so hard to get dental work done for autistic kids. And the Tourette's (ticks and clicks, not verbal) adds a WHOLE other dimension to it.

Still trying to find someone who can do it in office, rather than at a hospital, which just adds to the costs.

Not sure we're gonna find one within 100 miles (and Indiana is quite the haul from KC!).

Doktor Zoom July 18, 2012 at 1:39 pm

UM, I know you weren't actually asking for help, there, because really, situations like yours are exactly the reason we need national healthcare, goddammit. BUT, if you were considering an actual fundraising appeal, indiegogo is a pretty good platform to use, and I would be willing to bet there are plenty of Wonkers who would be delighted to chip in. Apologies if even mentioning this seems insulting; the hell of it is that in The Most Prosperous Country On Earth, people shouldn't have to be fucking begging for this, or trading tips on effective online begging tools.

UnholyMoses July 18, 2012 at 1:56 pm

First, not in any way insulted. (Take a bit more than that!)

Second, thank you! Not sure if we'll use it — not due to pride (I have very little) but because so many others are struggling, too. I'd just hate for any friends/family to feel obligated or guilty for not donating.

But I will most certainly bookmark that site. Just in case.

:-)

fuflans July 18, 2012 at 2:03 pm

my brother is developmentally disabled (and diabetic and has ADD and a mild form of tourettes). he had to have quite a bit of dental surgery last year (?). i believe my dad was able to (eventually) get Medicare to pay for it. it was a fight, but he was successful in the end (i think peter wracked up 60k or something). got them to reclassify as actual surgery or something.

they have also had success (for peter's other – much more significant and costly – heart surgeries) getting the hospital to donate the costs. i think they all have to provide such care (though i imagine others here are more qualified to weigh in).

don't know if any of this helps, but thinking of you and wish the wonkettes could do more.

jodyleek July 18, 2012 at 1:23 pm

I hear ya, BBear. My son won't sit still for a haircut, let alone dentistry.
Now, if we could just list our sons as polo ponies on our tax returns, we could write off their dental work, as I'm sure Mitt does with his horse.

ChessieNefercat July 18, 2012 at 1:34 pm

"Now, if we could just list our sons as polo ponies on our tax returns, we could write off their dental work, as I'm sure Mitt does with his horse."

Send this to whoever is making the snappy campaign ads for the Prez. I would like to see it on billboards everywhere, also too, on all the intertubes ads.

Eve8Apples July 18, 2012 at 12:33 pm

That ad makes John Kerry's parasailing look butch.

Fairtackle does, so it's all good.

mayor_quimby July 18, 2012 at 1:03 pm

I don't live in Washington, but i DO read The Stranger. That was some sick shit, in the video, which I absolutely didn't watch. Or show to friends so they shared my horror. I surely did not do any of those things.

Lascauxcaveman July 18, 2012 at 1:23 pm

I'm SO not gonna click that one.

(Things you can't unsee, etc.)

SorosBot July 18, 2012 at 1:51 pm

I'm not clicking, but there was an incident in Washington state (which is what I gather they're talking about, not Washington proper) I recall which I'm guessing they're referring to.

Fairtackle July 18, 2012 at 1:34 pm

"Wow, that's pretty arcane …"

Not in some circles (big Romney donors (some say)).

BigSkullF*ckingDog July 18, 2012 at 1:42 pm

I just read something on the internets about Romney and horse fucking. Now what was it? …

Eve8Apples July 18, 2012 at 12:44 pm

$77,000 a year for horse care?
Annual tuition at Harvard Law School is $47,000.
He could have sent the horse to Harvard Law School for less than he spent on horse care.
Yet, he argues he is the better candidate to control federal spending.

Spurning Beer July 18, 2012 at 12:54 pm

The Romneys are only one-third owners of Rifalca. The nag gets a lot more than $77,000 spent on it.

sullivanst July 18, 2012 at 1:09 pm

Presumably, though, the $77,000 was spread around all Ann's secretly-many dressage horses.

RedneckMuslin July 18, 2012 at 12:45 pm

Fuck y'all! I like the damn horse! USA! USA! USA!!!

Vecchiojohn July 18, 2012 at 1:25 pm

It isn't the horse. It's the horse's ass who owns it.

kittensdontlie July 18, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Me too. Hell, I'd vote for that horse.

Fox n Fiends July 18, 2012 at 12:51 pm

Anchor Baby Mitt Romney spends more on Dressage Ponies than Real Americans do on..everything. I don't think this assclown could be easier to defeat.

imissopus July 18, 2012 at 12:51 pm

Man, the Obama campaign hired some smart ad people this cycle.

Jus_Wonderin July 18, 2012 at 1:08 pm

I agree.

JohnnyQuick July 18, 2012 at 12:58 pm

Wow, that's what Dressage looks like? It… It can't!

It must take all the self-restraint Romney has to not get his handlers to throw that horse down and shave its mane.

12X34X July 18, 2012 at 1:01 pm

A horse is a massive, magnificent creature. What the hell was that weird, pink little dance they were forcing it to do? This is dressage? This alone is a reason to not vote for Romney. Gah! I'll say about this what I say about bull fighting – do it without the animals.

Prance onward, Romneys!

What line on the tax form is that? I could have had a vet cut off my dog's balls and deducted it off on my taxes? Instead I did it myself with a serrated Kinsu kitchen knife.

I want to hear Mitt explain it. "Democrat Party opposition research twisted the fact that I deducted $77,000 for horse care. I was not at Bain Capital at the time, and my horses were in a blind trust safe deposit box in Switzerland — one was in the Caymans — well before we installed the four-car elevator at our home in Del Mar."

Or, "I'll just let Rush and Sean and Fox carry the water for me on this one."

If the Obama campaign doesn't stop putting out ads like this, I may have to stop sending them money after each one.

I'm pretty sure this new ad will have the Romney campaign crying foal.

But windsurfing was too effeminate.

Also: If I'm grateful for anything this election cycle, it's learning the phrase "horse dancing" exists and refers to a real and hilarious thing.

Sometimes the Wonkette editors should show a little restraint. That high school video added little/ nothing to this otherwise magnificent posting.

Living in Georgia, I can tell you 99% of the people I deal with hate Barry. My pleasure comes from asking me what they like best about Mittens. The puzzled look on their faces is almost as enjoyable as the deafening silence.

Would like to have seen the transitions into and out of the passage and pirouette. Overall impression 7.5

You're eating hair!

I do feel your pain though. Hang in there.

And, have a retroactive mantle is better than a radioactive one, at least.

You're just trying to stirrup class warfare

Hey, considering some of the thoroughly ridiculous causes out there, I'd say go for it. It's like an online Rent Party.
