Time to focus on a more ennobling race

She'll be at the post at 5:15 p.m., our time, at the Breeder's Cup at Churchill Downs:  Zenyatta. 

She makes mere humans seem mean and petty. 
Zenyatta has won more money than any other North American mare ever. A big girl, 17.2 hands, she is personable, great with people, and likes to dance.  She has 18 straight wins, and and will go for her 19th tomorrow in Louisville.  Horses teach us much about how races should be run.  Watch this lady.

David, David, David. I'm disappointed in you. Trying to boost your political cred by associating yourself with images of handsome horses... what shameless pandering to an uninformed, image-obsessed electorate.

Newquist for Congress 2012!

Sometimes aging whores, especially those that like to hang around racetracks, get hoisted by their own homophones, and can't change their horse in midstream.
