So here we were, the Great Big American Family, watching the Obama campaign just beating the dickens out of a cornered Mitt Romney and all of his secret Bain Capital overlord-for-life titles. Didn’t it seem pretty bad, relative to these other stupid nonsense gaffe days? Just look at Stephanie Cutter! Stephanie Cutter, the Obama spokesperson, calling Romney a possible felon yesterday afternoon was the most baller campaign move we’ve seen in some time from this pathetic limping death hole of an ostensibly left-of-center political party. But maybe the attacks weren’t really all that damaging — one of those “secret internal polls say opposite of all public polls” type deals. Hmm, we’ll see. BUT THEN, LAST NIGHT: a sudden blast of 900 billion emails from Mitt Romney’s campaign about his VP selection process, along with a fat “CONDI FOR VEEEPEPEPEPEP??” leak to Drudge? Why, this attempted topic switch had all the trappings of a diversion! Diversion us away, sweet Romney flacks, wherever you’ll have us.
This is sort of mean, to Condi. Which is fine — be mean to her — she’s terrible and lies about everything and loves war war war, just loves it. Not that the mountains of childrens’ corpses that resulted from her manipulation of Iraq intelligence was her only shining, VP-qualifying achievement, either: Rice, hired for her background as a Russia Scholar, *did* play a leading role in crumbling US-Russia relations to rubble and leaving good ol’ entrenched mutual hostility in its place.
