A thorny comment

Apparently, one of Romney's own staffers referred to him as an Etch-a-Sketch(tm), meaning, again apparently, that his opinions and positions were as mutable as the faint, angular, scribblings that seven-year-olds produce by moving a stylus through some kind of powder, using X-Y axis movements on one of the most boring toys ever marketed. The implication, one assumes, is that Mitt's platform could be as easily revised for the big election as the image on an E-a-S, namely by holding him upside down and giving him a good shaking.

While that might be fun and perhaps the Governor might even enjoy it, he was not amused at the suggestion that he could flip-flop on virtually anything he'd said over the last several months of grotesque pandering to all that's lowest in America's twisted psyche campaigning. Obviously, the fact that one of his own people said it, not one of his opponents, GOP or otherwise, didn't sit well, either. And I can sympathize. I've had employees like that.
