First Lie Exposed in Team Romney’s Public Records Destruction Scandal Cover-up

Yesterday’s Globe: Andrea Saul, a spokeswoman for the Romney campaign, said the governor’s aides did nothing wrong. “In leaving office, the governor’s staff complied with the law and longtime executive branch practice,” she said. “Some employees exercised the option to purchase computer equipment when they left. They did so openly with personal checks.” […] Mark Nielsen, who was Romney’s…

From the Metaphor Dept: Romney Team Wiped Gov Records Before Leaving; Rob Eno Calls It “Corruption”

Mitt Romney and Company must have something to hide: Just before Mitt Romney left the Massachusetts governor’s office and first ran for president, 11 of his top aides purchased their state-issued computer hard drives, and the Romney administration’s e-mails were all wiped from a server, according to interviews and records obtained by the Globe.

After last night, I can’t imagine any GOP donor giving Rick Perry $5. Bachmann’s moment has come and gone, and no one will give Santorum (the 2012 equivalent of Sam Brownback 2008) the time of day. Huntsman won’t get traction for being too relatively moderate.  And Ron Paul isn’t going to get any more traction that he’s accumulated among “Ron…

Does Scott Brown Agree With Tea Partier That Elizabeth Warren Is a “Socialist Whore”?

This episode is incredibly telling, both about Elizabeth Warren’s unflappability and about Scott Brown’s apparent supporters’ willingness to proverbially throw rocks.
