It’s a Whitewashed Fence

Is it just me or am I the only one who is struck by the RNC this week as a scene out of Tom Sawyer?

Aunt Polly, played by the GOP has a fence, played superbly by Mitt Romney. She needs that fence whitewashed and sets Tom Sawyer, played by Paul Ryan, to do it.

Tom gets all the gullible kids to trade their tickets to win a bible from Sunday school in order to pick up a brush and help whitewash that fence.

Tom begins to sell that fence as the greatest fun anyone can ever have while all the while ducking from any actual work.

The smart folks stand just across the way, amused by the fact that so many are duped into helping paint the fence and being tricked into paying to do so.
