Quotation for Today: The Political Essence of Family Vacations

The quotation for today captures well the allegorical theme presented to us in the tale of the Mitt Romney-family vacation to Canada.

Many of you may have heard of how Republican presidential wannabe, Mitt Romney, transported Seamus -- the family dog -- on the roof of the family car when he took his family on vacation to Canada. Evidently, during the trip, Seamus -- the family dog -- suffered from a digestive-system illness that necessitated the washing of the family car. For the political essence of this tale, please continue reading across the jump.
"People, does any of this sound appealing? Elect Mitt Romney and he will take the nation on the road to the future. Some of us will be stuck on the roof. The rest of us will be inside singing camp songs and waiting for the day when the master plan lets us stop to visit the bathroom. Plus, anybody who screws up on the way to the future gets the hose."

I don't know about you, but I'm not interested in traveling anywhere with Mitt Romney and his family; too dangerous.
