Welcome aboard the Cracker Bay!
Gov. Mitt Romney’s campaign toasted its top donors Wednesday aboard a 150-foot yacht flying the flag of the Cayman Islands.
The exclusive event, hosted by a Florida developer on his yacht “Cracker Bay,” was one of a dozen exclusive events meant to nurture those who have raised more than $1 million for Romney’s bid. [...]
The event, attended by no more than 50 people, along with Romney relatives, including older brother Scott, appeared on no public calendars. ABC News obtained a schedule of the Romney campaign’s “Victory Council” and waited dockside to speak with members.
The Cracker. Fucking. Bay.
The Cracker! From the Cayman Islands. Flying a Cayman flag. Where’s Old Glory!? Why does Mitt Romney hate America?
As ABC points out, the event was not listed on a public schedule. No one was suppose to know about it. It was one of those “quiet room” events.
Ironically, Romney’s status as a cracker (read: white guy) is the only thing saving him in this election. He’ll get a pass for this. The president, meanwhile, would be crucified for it. Darrell Issa would have a conniption fit and there would be a congressional hearing on the matter.
“It’s not a boat, it’s a Yacht!”
