Gaffe A Sketch

ZUMA PressNewscom/TPM 
Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom gave everyone some ammunition on the firing range by comparing general election strategy to an Etch-A-Sketch: “You can kind of shake it up and restart all of over again.”

Rick "glad you haven't googled me" Santorum: “I’m no Etch a Sketch waiting to be shaken up & re-shifted“. Santorum spokes person Alice Stewart handed out mini Etch-A-Sketches at Romney event.

Not to be outdone, Newt Gingrich gave a little boy an Etch-A-Sketch. He said, “now you can be a presidential candidate!” No doubt, the boy will either do just that, or be upset at the joke on his expense.

The Democrats didn't hold their fire either - they were shooting within an hour. “Mitt Romney: Some Things You Just Can’t Shake Off"

On Twitter: #RomneyToys, Fake Eric Fehmstrom; Single Serving Site: Etch-A-Sketch Mitt Romney; Etch-A-Sketch spox Nicole Gresh reax: “A profound toy…is now SHAKING up the national debate"

Mitt Romney broke the silence on Etch-A-Sketch-Gate: “The issues I’m running on will be exactly the same"

Fehrnstrom clarifies: “[The general election] is a different race, with different candidates, and different issues that get discussed.”

Oh, and Jeb Bush finally decided to back Mitty.

Remember - as long as you don't care about real issues or real problems - it's crap like this that leads the media feed. It doesn't matter how much manure is in the feed, as long as you keep chewing it, they'll keep shoveling it.
