Uhm, Bricktown made a brief cameo in a Mitt Romney attack ad about job losses in Ohio

5:00 AM EDT on August 9, 2012

If you asked any Oklahoma City resident to name the location above, 99% of them would say it's Bricktown. That's because we're smart and know way too much about our occasionally fun, sterile and touristy entertainment district. In fact, we're so knowledgeable about Bricktown that most residents could probably even name the road (Sheridan) and the building (Bricktown Parking Garage?) where the photo was taken.

Based on that info, Mitt Romney is obviously not an Oklahoma City resident. He and his campaign apparently think Bricktown is located in Lyndhurst, Ohio:

Yeah, that's great. Mitt Romney is using stock video footage of our damn entertainment district to illustrate sadness, job loss and general despair in Ohio. Makes you feel proud, doesn't it?

Anyway, I considered emailing the Romney campaign and asking for a comment, but that would be pointless. They wouldn't reply back to an obscure local social blogger, and if they did, it would probably be something standard like:

Ha ha! Screw you guys. We could burn all your natural gas and piss on Will Rogers's grave and you all would still give us your worthless seven electoral votes.

Okay, that's not very standard, but it wouldn't be far from the truth. The only thing people hate more than Obama in this state is voting for Obama. He could be running against Terry Nichols, Sally Kern and a real Pedobear and probably not win this state. Which I guess is fine, since he's a Kenyan communist Muslim who wants to give all Americans access to healthcare or something ridiculous like that. Seriously, what a crazy guy.
