We Built This, Except That It Was Mostly Publicly Financed and It's Publicly Owned and Supported

Abby Zimet

In a stunning rebuke to Obama's wussy claim that entrepreneurs owe some of their success to the national commie infrastructure, the GOP is bravely going forward where no gang of idiots has gone before, declaring the opening theme for their convention at the Tampa Bay Times Forum "We Built This!" even though it somewhat embarrassingly turns out the arena was built with 62% government funds, is owned by local government, and has received tens of millions of dollars in government money for security. They thus aptly reflect what is their so-called candidate's evidently growing confusion. Now it's also looking like God might smite the convention with a tropical storm. No one knows why, but it's probably something to do with the gays or loose women.
