Like much of America, we at the Village Voice have been bemused by Rafalca Romney, Mitt Romney's dressage horse who will be competing in the XXX Olympiad in London tomorrow. Imagine our surprise when we noticed that @RafalcaRomney was Tweeting*! We immediately emailed her, and Rafalca was more than happy to share her thoughts on being Mitt's horse, the difficulties of tweeting with hooves, the even more harsh realities of living off of expenditures that exceed those of the average American family's each year, and traveling to London via FedEx.
Thank you for speaking to the Voice by email from London, Rafalca! An indelicate question for a lady first: How old are you?
I'm a 15-year-old Oldenburg warmblood mare. Translation: I'm pretty as hell.
When did you first start Tweeting?
I decided to save the world sometime in late April.
Is it hard to Tweet with hooves?
Typing with hooves is not easy, even with a custom-fitted equine keyboard. Usually, I just dictate tweets to my PA.
Apple or Android?
I like Apples. Mitt's an Android guy.More »
