A Real Zinger!

The Etch-a-Sketch isn't the only Team Romney gaffe in town during the past 24 hours.

Romney's top economic adviser Greg Mankiw posted a "joke" on his personal blog yesterday which, amazingly, hasn't been taken down yet.

Greg Mankiw, the Harvard professor who serves as one of Mitt Romney’s top economic advisers, has managed to take a shot at two key constituencies – Hispanics and seniors – in a single linked post on his popular economics blog.

Under the header “A Fiscal Solution,” Mankiw, who served as Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under George W. Bush, posted an uploaded photo of an unidentified newspaper clip, a joke, that read:

“Budget Cuts: The Immigration Department will start deporting seniors (instead of illegals) in order to lower Social Security and Medicare costs. Older people are easier to catch and less likely to remember how to get home.”

Get it? Seniors are old and stupid! Hyuk hyuk!

The Romney campaign has no empathy.
