Romney the Wolverine: Ohio State student paper links Mitt to Michigan

- Katherine Webb and the morbid depths of US sports 'journalism'
- Alabama to change their mantra ‘Roll Tide’ to ‘Part, Tide’.
- Guinness Book Of Records confirms: Seattle Seahawks have easily the most annoying fans
- Panthers unveil dominant new defensive play to win against the New England Patriots
- The Gladiator and the NCAA football player, 1,000s of years apart, but linked through eternity
The text reads "I have been a Michigan and a Wolverine fan for a long, long time" a statement the former Massachusetts governor, who was born in Michigan, made the last year.
This statement will not go down well amongst the passionate throngs of Buckeye nation.
The advertisement was paid for by the Ohio Democratic party and is an interesting tactic, a cheeky and welcome break from the usual negative, ugly and spiteful tactics that have been used to date by, in particular, the Republican party.
The image challenges Buckeye fans to question themselves, can they really vote for a man who roots for their most fiercest of rivals? Can the question cause a ripple in voting numbers in a key state? Stranger things have happened.
You wonder what The Mittster makes of all this. Probably not much. To his credit, Romney to date exudes a certain deflective aura of contentment, it would appear basically nothing can hurt him. Let’s face it, this chap is wonderfully detached from reality, this is the same individual who described the $374,000 in speaking fees he earned a year as “not very much.”
Now call me a Libtard Commie Barock O’Hussein Obama supporter if you will, but $374,000 DeNiros would make a welcome addition to this struggling freelance sports journalists’ wallet. Yes, very much.
As for The Mittster, If you were to ask him were he worried about the fallout from this incident, he would no doubt shake his jowls in that Nixonian manner he has and reply ‘’Not very much’’.
