Team Romney delivers cake to Newt - marking 15th anniversary he became first Speaker reprimanded for ethics violation #lowclassI agree with Todd's assessment, but I would add that seems rather immature and not fitting of a presidential campaign. Romney needs to have a talk with the frat boys that came up with that and tell them to knock it off.
Todd adds this in a follow-up:
Remember what Team Romney surrogate said: Electability trumps principle and belief.Romney may be on the way to giving this "sure thing" nomination away.
I like this assessment from Erick Erickson:
Tonight in South Carolina, Lincoln's Party will declare it'd rather have a Sherman than a McClellan.There's a lot of truth in that. Give me a candidate who will fight.
