If blogging was easy, anyone could do it. Oh, wait…

There’s profiling, and then there’s PROFILING

In case you missed it, that oxygen thief Harry Reid (D) is all afluff and in high dudgeon, insisting that “he heard from this guy who knows this girl who’s friends with my hairdresser’s dog’s pedicurist that Mitt Romney hasn’t paid taxes, in like, you know, 4evah!

And thus firmly ensconsed on his soap box, is insisting, nay, dare I say DEMANDING that Romney prove him wrong.  Otherwise know as guilty until proven innocent.  Also known as “profiling.”

Which I guess is okay if you are a rich, white politician, but not if you a swarthy skinned middle-easterner or your first name is Juan Valdez Ramirez Himinez and you are crammed into a minivan with 17 of your close personal friends.  But I digress.

This kind of cheap shot, tawdry politics fall into the same category as a reporter asking, “Mr. Romney, have you stopped beating your wife yet?”  It assume facts not in evidence, immediately puts the target on the defensive, at the same time framing the narrative such that the target (if they fall for it) now has the burden of proof laid on them, rather than the accuser.

If Harry Reid has evidence that Mitt Romney is a tax evader, and thus a felon, he damn well better pony up the dope.  And I personally think that every politician who has been so adamant about seeing Romney personal tax returns ought to be right out there putting theirs up for comparison.  Yes, that includes Ms. Pelosi, and the Hon. Mr. Obama.

Come on, I thought this was the most transparent administration ever! {{snicker}} Yeah, right.
