Poor Widdle Mitty

The RNC, long known for its deft use of humor, is at it again:

The Republican National Committee is out with its first explicitly pro-Mitt Romney web ad, which mocks President Obama for “slow jamming” Tuesday on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”

The video, entitled “A Tale of Two Leaders,” intermingles clips of Obama’s appearance on the show, in which Fallon calls Obama the “Preezy of the United Steezy” as the president stands in the background, with cuts from Romney’s general election kick-off speech the same day.

Pay special attention as Richie Rich tells the cheering crowd, “I see children even more successful than their parents — some successful even beyond their wildest dreams — and others congratulating them for their achievement, not attacking them for it.” Nobody loves a whiner, Mitt. Didn’t your less successful father ever tell you that?

It's interesting that "successful" has become a euphamism for "filthy rich".

It's not a term I've ever heard used to describe teachers, firemen, policemen, parents, or anyone else who contributes to the survival of human civilization.

If that's our ideal as a society, things will not go well.
