Mitt Romney’s jihad

As anyone who followed the recent controversy about an ad denouncing jihad as savage should know by now, it’s “racist” to do so, and there are some people who would declare themselves a #ProudSavage to protest such an outrageous libeling of jihad. Indeed, the meaning of jihad is really first and foremost and basically always self-improvement. [Repeat as often as necessary, and then some].

But!!! In the wake of last night’s presidential debate, it turns out that some people think Mitt Romney is on a jihad – and that can’t mean anything good, right?!?!? A lot of people even seem to think that Romney is out to kill Sesame Street’s Big Bird, and there’s even a campaign to “Save Big Bird.”

I’m telling you: jihad is savage when Mitt Romney is doing it…
