As Mitt Romney would say, you'll be "completely guffawing" and/or "laughing uproariously" after watching the latest Priorities USA ad congratulating him on his victory:

Mitt Romney wins gold in the Plutocrat's Pentathlon
Welcome to the Olympics.  There’s Mitt Romney, who ran the Salt Lake City Games, waving to...

China - home to a billion people.  Thousands owe their jobs to Mitt Romney’s companies.

India, which also gained jobs thanks to Romney, an outsourcing pioneer.

And Burma, where Romney had the uniforms made for the 2002 games.

We know the Swiss have a special place in Mitt Romney's wallet – er - heart.

He kept millions in Swiss banks – those Swiss sure know how to keep a secret.

Speaking of secrets, there's Bermuda.  Home to a secretive corporation set up by Romney.  No one knows why.  And Romney won’t tell.

And the Cayman Islands. Where Romney keeps millions to avoid U.S. taxes.

Ya gotta say this about Mitt Romney.  He sure knows how to go for the gold...for himself.

Priorities USA Action is responsible for the content of this advertising.

Of course, the really shocking thing about this ad isn't that Mitt Romney has secret shell companies and offshore accounts in the Caribbean ... it's that both Bermuda and the Cayman Islands had Winter Olympic teams in 2002.  

(Dartagnan has a recommended diary on the ad.)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
