THE CAYMAN ISLANDS SOUND AWESOME  3:00 pm August 29, 2012

Romney Campaign Throws Fancy Party on Cayman Island Yacht

by Jim Newell

“Romney Party Yacht Flies Cayman Islands Flag,” reads the headline! Now that your idiot Wonkette blogger has wasted the last 90 minutes trying to determine with other Twitter people if it’s a Cayman or Bermuda flag — it’s a Brian Ross report, after all — it does in fact appear to be the “other,” more red Cayman flag, a.k.a. the Cayman civil ensign that Cayman boat people put on their Cayman boats. So, to return to where we started: Romney Party Yacht Flies Cayman Islands Flag! The yacht is called Cracker Bay, and that’s not a joke either.

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.

How was it, Wilbur Ross?

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.

It’s the most fun America’s billionaires have had since the last “get naked and burn that pagan owl” thing at the Bohemian Grove, we hear, from secret insider billionaire sources (our cat).

Yachts are boats too, my friend.

Nobama doesn't get what it is like to be a regular joe sixpack with a fishing boat, because he has been rich so long.

I don't think he's tone deaf. He just doesn't give a fuck what "those people" think.

Envy will sway more voters than policy ever could.
Or so his staff seems to believe. I think they should all get big, fat raises to encourage this same level of political acumen right up to Election Day.

swordfis August 29, 2012 at 3:03 pm

Does this asshole really want to be president?

UnholyMoses August 29, 2012 at 3:25 pm

Want to?

No.

Think it's his birthright and sees it as a way to top his very successful daddy, thus giving us a third consecutive GOP President/candidate w/ severe daddy issues?

Yes.

Arborista August 29, 2012 at 3:29 pm

I wonder if he isn't the only one in his circle of family, church elders & wealthy acquaintance who doesn't particularly want a Romney presidency?

No, I don't believe he does.

BaldarTFlagass August 29, 2012 at 3:03 pm

That's not the Cracker Bay, it's the Disco Volante. "Wilbur Ross" is the nom de guerre for Emilio Largo. Needs more eyepatch.

"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.

Au contraire…why shouldn't the boat take after Mittens and avoid that pesky price we pay for a civilized society?

IncenseDebate August 29, 2012 at 3:06 pm

Reporters on scene couldn't get close to the yacht since it has a powerful nut-launching system.

However, between the 50 people on board, they couldn't find any ammunition.

The ship is registered in the Caymans, Editrix, so you are right

MacRaith August 29, 2012 at 3:09 pm

A tour of any marina on the Atlantic coast will quickly demonstrate that the more expensive the yacht is, the more likely it is to be registered in the Caymans. The conclusion is left as an exercise for the reader.

"He is the first nominee in 12 years to withhold these names," said Sheila Krumholz, executive director of the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks political money on the website opensecrets.org.

The flag is a naval jack. Most countries have one, and it's usually different in some way from the regular national flag. America's traditional jack, as example, is only the blue with stars part (the "canton") of the regular flag.

Also, "jack" is what the people on board the particular boat in question plan to do to the US economy if Romney is elected.

The saddest part is that while there were apparently around 50 people on the yacht, according to the article, it only seats 30. So even within the inner circle of the inner circle, almost half of them were denied seats.

I think Biscayne Bay has that honor.

MosesInvests August 29, 2012 at 5:58 pm

Mobile Bay.

Sittin on the dock inTampa Bay,
counting my cash as I fire a guey….

Wastin' time………………♫

Incitefully_Joe August 29, 2012 at 3:39 pm

Oh, sure, but if Obama had a luxury party yacht for fundraisers that was flying a foreign flag and called "Cracker Bay"…

IceCreamEmpress August 29, 2012 at 3:43 pm

To be honest, it would be awesome beyond words if Bammerz did that, because he would be funny as hell about it.

Maybe Warren Buffett will step up and fund "Cracker Bay 2: Electric Boogaloo"? Soros? Oprah? Anybody?

Incitefully_Joe August 29, 2012 at 3:57 pm

I dunno, I think "Cracker Bay II" might be a little… on-the-nose. We can come up with some alternative names.

Honkey Harbor?
Caucasian Key?
Can't Dance Lagoon?
Whitey Ford?

Geminisunmars August 29, 2012 at 4:09 pm

O'keefe Reef?

Incitefully_Joe August 29, 2012 at 4:13 pm

NEVER GO TO A PARTY ON A BOAT WITH THAT NAME, IT IS A BAD IDEA.

Incitefully_Joe August 29, 2012 at 4:14 pm

Also great, commentz killed my editing powerz, but Whitey Ford.

Where's the long form yacht registry certificate?

Struggling workers can expect to pay 20% less taxes if Romney becomes president, it will help meet their higher living expenses. Many wasteful social programs will be ended, billions will be saved and taxpayers will have more in their paychecks.

MissTaken August 29, 2012 at 3:46 pm

Your tedious trolling is taking a toll.

natoslug August 29, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Fuckwit says what?

pdiddycornchips August 29, 2012 at 4:03 pm

Awesome! Let me translate, I speak wingnut.

White people will have twenty cents more a week to spend at Walmart, blah's will get nothing. Billionaires will get free money to spend on wars and yachts. The poors will do the fighting and dying and a few lucky ones will get to polish the gold inside the yachts.

Biff August 29, 2012 at 4:24 pm

So–house, field and yacht negroes , then?

Biel_ze_Bubba August 29, 2012 at 4:04 pm

They can expect the same under Obama … without screwing people who rely on social programs.

SorosBot August 29, 2012 at 4:17 pm

No, he proposes raising taxes on struggling workers; it's just the rich like himself he wants to lower taxes on. Oh and social programs are not wasteful, but very important and government doing its' fucking job.

IceCreamEmpress August 29, 2012 at 7:36 pm

Oh, you and your "logic" and "facts". polnick sees those and raises you two Boortzes and a Cavuto.

BaldarTFlagass August 29, 2012 at 4:31 pm

I see you changed your boardname, Mr. Mxyzptlk. How are things in Bizarro World these days?

HogeyeGrex August 29, 2012 at 3:42 pm

A fundraiser on a yacht under a flag of convenience? Bah. That's nothing. Cheney ran the country for eight years under a flag of convenience.

Exhausted66 August 29, 2012 at 3:44 pm

Relax, it's not like a lapel pin, you guys.

Monsieur_Grumpe August 29, 2012 at 3:44 pm

Where are those Somalian Pirates when you need them?

mavenmaven August 29, 2012 at 3:45 pm

The best part of this is that they rented the boat from James O'Keefe.

Biel_ze_Bubba August 29, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Mitt's concern with the the welfare of "boat people" has always been a high personal priority.

Guppy August 29, 2012 at 3:49 pm

Just so long as the yacht's crew and staff were treated in accordance to those notoriously rigorous Caymanian labor and worker safety regulations!

Oh, wait, "flags of convenience" are only convenient for the job creators.

hagajim August 29, 2012 at 3:55 pm

In a not related story….anyone have any idea how much Ann's outfit cost yet?

viennawoods13 August 29, 2012 at 5:32 pm

Hopefully not much. God it was ugly.

rich crackers met on a boat in the caymans…whaaaa…

Pap Finn August 29, 2012 at 4:20 pm

They as much as say, 'fuck you, you rabble' with that flag (and in a million other ways), and yet the working class whites will still line up around the block to vote for their candidates as long as they continue to say ungentle things about Browns and Gheys.

Won't these dumb fucks ever catch on?

GeorgiaBurning August 29, 2012 at 5:03 pm

Not as long as the richies provide somebody for them to look down on and be afraid of.

polnick August 29, 2012 at 4:25 pm

The higher defense budget under Romney will give the nation more killer weapons to fight the YELLOW PERIL. Six new nuclear subs plus hundreds of F-35 fighter’s will stop CHING CHOW from being able to KUNG FU America. It will be paid for by ending the social programs that are filling the pockets of embezzlers and poverty p-imps.

DahBoner August 29, 2012 at 5:26 pm

He won't do jack shit against the Chinesesters, just like W.

Remember W appologizing because the CHINESE TOOK OUR SPYPLANE?

Nope, braindead.

MosesInvests August 29, 2012 at 6:01 pm

You're not even trying, are you? Dawn take you, and be stone to you!

Baba_NinjaCat12 August 29, 2012 at 4:29 pm

I wish they got shipwrecked at Taco Island.

resolvedwaldron August 29, 2012 at 4:31 pm

The Bain Mutiny:

Captain Romney: "Ahh, but the taxes that's… that's where I had them. They laughed at me and made jokes but I proved beyond the shadow of a doubt and with… geometric logic….that my Cayman accounts were only to pay minimal taxes not to avoid them…"

Soylent Green August 29, 2012 at 4:34 pm

I hoid of a invasion fleet, but an evasion fleet?

An_Outhouse August 29, 2012 at 4:41 pm

It was docked in a quiet slip. YOU PEOPLE were not supposed to know about it.

OzoneTom August 29, 2012 at 5:02 pm

All of my favorite Bohemian Grove memories come from "Teddy Bears Picnic."

DahBoner August 29, 2012 at 5:23 pm

That means the boat is under Cayman Island law, which means all rape is "legit".

Wink, wink…

mbobier August 29, 2012 at 7:47 pm

Giant yacht…. million-dollar, probably exclusively white fundraisers…. Cayman flag…. "Cracker Bay…." It's all so wonderful, I can't even think of a suitable joke to tie it all together.

ttommyunger August 29, 2012 at 10:19 pm

Oh, yeah! Partying with the Romneys. Get down, motherfuckers, get DOWN!
