Buzzfeed "Reporter's" Tweet: Romney Vehicle Passes Hill Flying Confederate Flag

Political Reporting, Buzzfeed style, or, as @benk84 calls it, "The Chive With Politics."


@ZekeJMiller

Romney motorcade just passed a hill flying a large confederate flag in rural SW VA

Ah. His motorcade just passed a hill flying a confederate flag. Numinous. Sets the stage. Novelistic detail, we call that. The single well-chosen telling detail that implies larger ones.

That's the local color he supplies for Romney.

And for Obama?

Pool: Obama insisted on taking a photograph in front of the sign that read "Michelle's Bakery."


Obama per pool: " And she spells it the right way, with two Ls. Thatís the correct way"

Pool: "Potus seemed enamored by the shop's name. "It is no coincidence that Iím stopping at Michelleís bakery," "

Awww. Obama loves his wife so much he seeks out baked goods bearing her name.

Meanwhile Romney's motorcade has its GPS set to KLAN MODE, taking sketchy back-routes and by-ways once used by Quantrill's Raiders.

2. ROMNEY MOTORCADE, CALLED BY ONE OFFICE-MATE A "ROLLING RACE RIOT WITH FENDERS," NOW HURTLING TOWARDS WASHINGTON, DC FOR WHAT IS ALMOST SURELY A SUICIDAL LAST-STAND CONFEDERATE-VENGEANCE BLOOD-ORGY

...and the Number One scoop coming from very objective BuzzFeed blogger Zeke J. Miller...

1. * Update: Due to an error beyond BuzzFeed's control, it turns out it wasn't Romney's motorcade at all. It was a funeral procession.
