Switzerland (reluctantly) Features in U.S. Election Campaign

They say that American election campaigns get nastier by the day, which is probably true. But this “Romney Girl” is cute, isn’t she?

The Swiss are reportedly angry, all the same, but not about this video (which, its authors say, was made for an Agenda Project/Action Fund without links to Obama anyway), but, according to a Swiss embassy spokeswoman in Washington, about campaign ads giving the impression that simply having a Swiss bank account means that the accountholder is trying to hide money from the IRS.

Isn’t the “Romney Girl” reason enough to go to Switzerland (just with the amount of money it takes to party, rather than to carry those alleged big suitcases there)? Isn’t she soft power? I mean, isn’t she Frau Antje?
