Faux Outrage

Let me get this straight.

Romney has been saying for weeks that he wants to "unshackle" Wall Street from regulations.

Last night, Joe Biden picks up on the metaphor, and quips that Romney's policies will lead the middle class "back in chains".

Then, the Romney camp gets offended, because putting people in chains means… SLAVERY.  And how DARE Joe Biden insinuate that — wait, WHAT?!?

Listen, Mittens.  If you are going to go to the fainting couch whenever Team Obama says something clever (and my God, it wasn't even that clever), and act like Obama has just offended all the rich white people like you because of, uh, slavery (or something, I don't really know), maybe you don't have the fortitude to serve in the most stressful office in the land.
