Elusive Tax Details

The campaigns themselves are jeering too. The Democratic National Committee released a tax spoof on Oct. 16 that is a sort of pin-the-tail-on-Romney's-tax-policy challenge. Visitors to the web site, which has over 568,000 likes on Facebook, find their cursor transformed into a red box called "Get the Details." Frustration ensues as the box cannot be clicked and shifts position along with the mouse. The Romney campaign slogan also comes in for digital ribbing in the spoof. "Believe in America" is scribbled over to say "Believe in Half of America."
