Obama wins sing-off against Romney

If the November election were a sing-off, the Obamas wouldn’t have to bother hunting for moving boxes. This confident prediction comes after hearing Mitt Romney, the guy who apparently will do anything to get votes, warble “America the Beautiful.”

Romney’s aural assault came on the last day of campaigning before today’s voting in the Florida primary. And it comes 12 days after President Obama revealed a previously unknown vocal talent.

As we all know, Al Green has seen a boom in sales for “Let’s Stay Together.” But if Katharine Lee Bates were still alive she would be right to demand that Romney cease and desist. Or at least confine his lounge singing to the shower or the car.
