Dear children of Defiance, Ohio:

I’m sorry Mitt Romney is ruining your trick-or-treat by stopping in Defiance, and I’m especially sorry for those of you that live by the high school. I loved trick-or-treat when I grew up there.

A word of advice: If your parents drag you to the rally, don’t ask the Muppet looking guy, Paul Ryan, for candy. He’s likely to give you a copy of a really heavy book called “Atlas Shrugged” and lecture you about makers and takers.

Grownups, remember this: Mitt Romney gave less than two shits about Defiance until The Washington Post did a story about how the auto bailout got the GM plant humming again, and how two local attorneys put up billboards reminding voters GM is alive and Bin Laden is dead.
Is Romney going to the GM plant? Nope, he’s speaking elsewhere. Why? Because he would let it remain a hulking ghost of what used to be in Defiance.

Remember this when you go to the ballot box.

Cheers,
Meg
