Mitt Romney and Pink Slime
Considering what Romneybot has been doing to his opponents all these many months of the clown parade known as the Republican presidential primary season, and will do to President Obama once the Romneyapalooza drags its worn and sorry ass over the nomination finish line, this comes as no surprise.
The company at the center of a national controversy over ammonia-treated beef byproducts – known in the media as “pink slime” – is headed by a major donor to Mitt Romney’s political action committees.Of course, for Republicans, some science is more valid than others.
We’ve asked the Romney campaign if they intend to weigh in on the “pink slime” issue – as far as I’m aware, Romney has not yet done so – or comment on the donations. A number of Republican governors, including Rick Perry and Sam Brownback, issued a statement this week defending beef manufacturers and the treated meat under fire as a “safe, nutricious product that is backed by sound science.”Via our great national treasure, Charles Pierce.
