Mitt Romney’s Marie Antoinette moment: party yacht flies Cayman Islands flag

Oh, what have we here? Why it’s a yacht flying the flag of the Cayman Islands — a yacht owned by a Florida developer who hosted a lavish party in honor of Mitt Romney’s formal nomination. The yacht, aptly named “Cracker Bay,” was attended by about 50 GOP party animals, including Romney relatives. A woman living aboard a less impressive boat moored at the St. Petersburg Municipal Marina remarked, “I think it’s ironic they do this aboard a yacht that doesn’t even pay its taxes.” Indeed. Definitely a ‘Marie Antoinette’ moment for Mittens. I reckon the most Republican spin doctors and Tea Party flacks can hope for during the Democratic National Convention: President Obama partying aboard a yacht flying the Kenyan flag. Of course, that would fall under the ‘in your dreams’ category.
