Even The Onion Is Goofing on Obama's Mitt Romney Murder Mystery Show

Not far from the truth.

'Romney Murdered JonBenét Ramsey,' New Obama Campaign Ad Alleges

Titled “He Did It,” the advertisement asks if anyone can truly remember where Romney was the night of the child’s murder, and whether the U.S. populace wants a president capable of strangling a little girl and dumping her body in her parents’ basement.

President Obama appears at the end of the advertisement to approve the message.

“I think this is a fair ad, and I think Mitt Romney owes an explanation to the American people as to why he murdered JonBenét Ramsey,” said Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, who called the commercial’s black-and-white reenactment of Mitt Romney carrying a kicking and screaming child to her death “accurate.”

More there. I wasn't even going to read the article, figuring the joke was all in the headline and picture, but then it got pretty funny.

Meanwhile, more abuse pours in on poor Obama, including this RNC ad.

Thanks to @johnekdahl.
