From Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, expressing his opinion of Mitt Romney’s love of Alpine banks:
I’ve never known of a Swiss bank account to build an American bridge, a Swiss bank account to create American jobs, or Swiss bank accounts to rebuild the levees to protect the people of New Orleans. That’s not an economic strategy for moving our country forward.
I believe that O’Malley has won the competition for most references to “Swiss bank account” in a single sentence. That was the contest everyone was playing this morning on the Sunday talk shows, wasn’t it? I’d know for sure, but I spent the morning watching tennis instead.
By the way, I have it on good authority that Roger Federer has placed his Wimbledon winnings in a Swiss bank account. What’s his excuse?
