Morning Mix: Newt’s Guy Says Dems Abort Black Babies, Mitt Gets Glitterbombed
Fresh off his win in Florida, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney traveled to Minnesota where he was met with a big parade of glitter aka “glitterbombed” just before taking the stage at a campaign event where he promised to “repeal Obamacare on Day 1.”
Just like Romney, the Susan G. Komen Foundation doesn’t seem too concerned with poor folks either, or their ability to access affordable cancer screens. And guess who wants to take credit for that brilliant policy decision: the diaper-wearing, prostitute-loving Republican Senator from Louisiana, David Vitter.
And just when you think the Newt Gingrich campaign can’t get any uglier, can’t racially dog-whistle any louder, Gingrich’s surrogate Rick Tyler goes on tv and announces that Democrats just want to abort black babies.
Good news for the Obama administration as the President’s poll numbers continue to improve, even in swing states like Ohio where the President now leads. Maybe there is a benefit to this bloodbath of a Republican primary after all.
In other high-profile races, two-term state representative from Tuscon Matt Heinz became the first Democrat to enter the special election to succeed Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Heinz is an openly gay lawmaker in a hostile climate which will no doubt make this case even more of an attention-grabber.
It looks like Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus has some explaining to do as he’s now been implicated in the ever-expanding criminal enterprise otherwise known as the Gov. Scott Walker administration.
