Guardian Headline--Ann Romney's horse fails to win dressage but avoids offending British

Ann Romney's horse fails to win dressage but avoids offending British
Rafalca, owned by Mrs Mitt Romney, was impeccably behaved and well received by Olympic equestrians in Greenwich



Never for a second during her seven-minute performance did a hoof stray dangerously mouthwards, nor did she do anything at all to offend or upset the host nation. From the moment she entered the Greenwich Park equestrian arena at 12.15 on Thursday afternoon, the most famous political horse since Caligula toyed with making a consul of Incitatus seemed in her element.

4. Fine, but how much am I going to have to shell out for a can of Rafalca?

 

My doggies are hungry, and I've got to bribe the pitbulls at daycare! Damn rappers.

And when is Elmer's coming out with their "Rafalca" line of glues? My little darlings can't be the last ones to have it.

6. OMG, Paris Hilton as a pony!

 

Don't take what I wrote seriously. A lot of my friends are horses and other animals... just not the groundhog that's made my life a living hell and ate all our peaches off the tree. That one has to go.

Surprisingly, there's a recipe for woodchuck in "The Joy of Cooking". The second she crosses between me and nothing vital....

10. One wonders what is the psychological attraction to a sport

that requires the exertion of so much control, down to it's every move, over another sentient being? I wonder if the Romney's regard their personal staff and help as nothing more than puppets on a string.
