America The Riderless Horse?

So this is one of those times where sports and politics meet up.  Or at least I think this video below of a riderless horse, having thrown its jockey at the gate, winning a horse race a couple days ago is some kind of metaphor for Obama’s America: America is like a thoroughbred, able to win even without a rider.  Or perhaps it should be the other way around: imagine how well the country could run without being ridden by Obama and his deadweight policies.  Too bad America can’t throw its jockey so easily.  And the announcers are like the media, aren’t they–ignoring the main story right in front of them.  This is how I imagine Paul Krugman would have called the race.

Hat tip: AMF.
