As for Obama and the Obama presidential campaign, what do they have to hide? Already their credibility is in tatters owing to their shoddy charges against Romney. First there was the charge regarding his taxes. Then there was the charge that his decisions at Bain Capital killed the wife of a man felicitously named Joe Soptic. His charge was leveled against Romney despite the fact that he left Bain Capital two years before Soptic lost his job and his health insurance. At any rate, it really does not matter whether Soptic had health insurance, because Mrs. Soptic was covered by her own insurance policy. Joe told CNN that Mrs. Soptic worked until 2002 or 2003, when she quit because of an injury. However, there is good news. She did not die until 2006. Still, the Democrats lay her death to Romney. That is what we call Sophistry!

Now comes Romney's choice of a running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan. There are literally hundreds of lies that can be told about him, possibly thousands. But there is a problem with Ryan. He has answers. In politics, he could be called the Answer Man.

I advise the entire Democratic Party to clear this question up now. Has Reid or has he not been canoodling with a cow? It is important because next week I shall be divulging the relationship of Vice President Joe Biden with a parrot, and the parrot is astonishingly lucid, at least in comparison to Biden.
