But…of…course:

The founder of Beef Products, known for its production of “pink slime,” is a major donor to Mitt Romney.

Businessman Eldon Roth held a Sioux Falls fundraiser for Romney last year and donated $190,000 to the Romney campaign in 2010, Politico reports. Roth has also donated to Romney’s 2008 campaign, as well as other Republican candidates.

In Romney’s 2010 book, “No Apology,” Roth is cited as a success story.

I’m guessing Mitt has never had the blessing of eating up a big ol’ pile of carcass remains that don’t even earn the name offal delightfully enriched with a heavy dose of ammonium hydroxide — if only Whizzo had thought of this.

You won’t see a gypsy/land-0-lakes lady/sherpa/plushie-themed Padma pretend to eat this crap on Top Chef, not to mention come within a quarter-mile of the various Romney-family lairs.

It should be said that such Republican science-wizzes as Rick Perry tell us that pink slime, is just fine and the fact it’s manufacturers donate to scientifically-balanced Republican politicians shouldn’t worry you at all. The GOP and science have a “great relationship”…just not nearly as good as their relationship with money.
