Well . . .we horses underestimated Barack Obama and overestimated the power of the old white angry men. Mitt was preparing us for the victory dance. Instead we got stuck in the barn. We would have won if not for women and students and minorities and Sandy and those smart liberal people. And those liberal Catholic bishops. But there is one black hero who fully supports Mitt and us: Allen West. A pure breed. In a July 2011 post on the website Red Country, West wrote, “I must confess, when I see anyone with an Obama 2012 bumper sticker, I recognize them as a threat to the gene pool.” But don’t despair, Allen. We are with you. With your help we will keep the gene pool pure.
