Sorry, Mitts, But You've Been Punked.



What's the first word you think of when you hear the name Dan Quayle?
Potatoe.
Now, thanks to one of Mitt Romney's dimwitted political staffers, the Etch-a-Sketch will forever be associated with Romney's shallow, wishy washy political ideology.
We liberals don't like admitting that Romney was a very moderate, sometimes even liberal governor of Massachusetts. But behind closed doors, we wink and nod and say that he's faking being such a hard-line conservative just to get the GOP nomination, and God forbid if he becomes president, all that ultra conservative bullshit will disappear, much like a slightly shaken Etch-a-Sketch.
As for the Etch-a-Sketch itself, we Americans have gotten so dumbed-down we need our political imagery to be simple.
Mitt Romney's politics are flip floppy. Like an Etch-a-Sketch, they can change with very slight prompting. OH, I GET IT NOW.
Watch and see, once the race begins and it's Obama versus Romney, the Democrats will be purchasing and distributing Mini Etch-a-Sketches like campaign buttons.
Though it's hard to believe that a simple child's toy like this can bring down a presidential candidate but like Quayle's potatoe, the deed has been done.
