They beep for Willard

Team Rmoney, proving they have the collective maturity of a bunch of ten year olds poring over a Playboy centerfold, unleashed their latest campaign tactic this afternoon. The Romney bus circled a Obama event site beeping their horn at the crowd waiting to get into the venue for at least 20 minutes. Then Willard's man took to twitter to crow about it.

Not sure if it's slyly smart or incredibly stupid politics in the long run, but I agree with Josh that they did it to appeal to the lizard brain of the GOP base. A quick slog through the blog of some fringenut who calls himself Weasel shows it played well with the little Zippers in the cesspool of a comment section. Much high-fiving going on there as visions of pissed off liberal danced in their tiny little heads. So pathetic. [More coverage here and here.]

I see Mark Knoller was a witness, so major media is well aware of the school yard "hijinks." I'll be interested to see if it makes the nightly TV news. With so much press coverage, hard to believe no one caught any video of it. Rather certain if had been an Obama bus doing the rotary motor nyah nyah, it would be leading all three networks.

They really get off on the most childish things don't they?

None of them has a emotional maturity over ten years old.
