Mitt Romney Is A Slick Motherfucker: The Friday Nooner (EST)!

Awesome Video Of The DayMitt Romney Doesn't Know Who Let The Dogs Out1

I don't support Mitt Romney as a candidate in any way, but I have to hand it to him: he handled this situation with more style & finesse than I ever would have been capable of.

I've never seen a black person in real life, but I've always considered myself prepared should the occasion arise. I remember reading something in National Review that said you're supposed to whistle a soothing tune while clutching your valuables & loved ones to your chest, and that always seemed like sage advice to me... until now, anyway.

After seeing this video of Mitt Romney actually attempting to interact with black people, I don't even know what to think anymore. Could it be that the National Review was wrong? Is that really possible? To reverse engineer this problem, I think we need to try to understand what was going through Romney's head at the time:

  • (6 seconds into the video) "I am surrounded by black people."
  • (9 seconds into the video) "Black people love rap music."
  • (13 seconds into the video) "The only rap song I can vaguely recall is that 'Who Let The Dogs Out?' thing."
  • (15 seconds into the video) "If I make a reference to that, these people will like me."
  • (16 seconds into the video) "I am going to ask these black people who let the dogs out."
  • Well played, Romney. Well played.

    1 Answer: It was the Baha Men. The Baha Men are the ones who let the dogs out.
