Let it be a sign unto you. . .

By Capt. Fogg
Living right on the Atlantic coast in Florida, I often see and hear blimps cruising the shoreline at low altitude.  It was a a beautiful day yesterday and I spent the balmy afternoon reading and listening to music on my boat and perhaps I would have seen the Romney Blimp ( technically a hot air dirigible) had it made the trip up the coast from Miami, just over a hundred miles south of here.

It didn't, because as WPLG TV reports, it was forced down by high winds, crashed and went limp in a field near Davie, FL.  In other words the winds of  reality outweighed the artificially created hot air holding it aloft.

There's something amusingly Ozymandian about the smiling image of Willard Mitt Romney looking out from the wreckage of a collapsed airship; something so appealingly metaphorical and  prophetic.  Please, God -- let it be a sign.

Surely an omen from the universe. Maybe a sign that Gloria Allred really does have an October surprise to spring on Mr. Romnesia.

To have that inflated and underpowered gasbag with Romney's picture on it collapse during the 'debate' would have been better, but I take it to be an omen and an indicator -- if not of God's wrath -- then at least of his disgust.

I wonder if it had a stuffed dog tied to the top of it.
