Romney Blimp Crash-Lands in Blue Florida County: VIDEO


A Romney blimp came down in the hostile territory of Broward County, Florida Sunday night, NBC Miami reports:

No one was injured when the thermal airship, which had a photo of the GOP presidential hopeful and the slogan "America Needs Romney," went down in the 3800 block of Southwest 92nd Avenue around 7:30 p.m., Davie Police spokesman Capt. Dale Engle said.

"It experienced some high winds and was having a difficult time and crash landed here in the field just south of Bamford Park in Davie," Engle said. "They were experiencing some problems due to the wind which forced them to crash land here in the field."

The airship had been traveling from Boca Raton, the site of Monday's third and final debate between Romney and President Barack Obama, to North Perry Airport in Pembroke Pines.

One voter told the news, "I thought, boy, Mitt Romney really wants us to vote for him."

An Obama supporter joked, "Yeah I brought it down with a rock...no."

  1. What they meant was...

    "The full-of-hot-air Romneybot experienced some harsh wind of criticism, was having difficult time connecting with the 21st Century American Woman, and crash landed in a field of hypocritical manure."

    That of course coupled with the obvious constant of flip-flopping gales of pretend-theocracy, under the guise of religious beliefs.

  2. We can only hope his campaign will do the same thing - but I'm afraid he has a chance at getting elected, unless the sane voters decide to turn up.

  6. Hmmm, I may have to rethink my atheism. This has "Act of God" written all over it.
