Nothing can compare to the superpowers of one Willard “Metamorphomitt” Romney, The Man Who Will Be Anything.
Appearing on CNN this morning, Romney Communications Director Eric Fehrnstrom was asked if he’s concerned that Romney may alienate general election voters with some of the hard-right positions he’s taken during the primary to appeal to conservatives. Fehrnstrom brushed this concern off:
HOST: Is there a concern that Santorum and Gingrich might force the governor to tack so far to the right it would hurt him with moderate voters in the general election.
FEHRNSTROM: Well, I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all of over again.
Plastic Man’s got nothing on Metamorphomitt. Granted, they both have their own jets and a couple of minions, but Mitt has better hair.
And yes, Ferhrnstrom really does think GOP voters are this incredibly stupid, because GOP voters are pretty much incredibly stupid. Guess what? Those votes still count (especially since the GOP is doing everything they can to disenfranchise everyone else.) Why waste time assuming they’re not going fall into line when the only thing that matters is BEAT OBAMA(tm)? Not Romney may be winning the GOP primaries (Not Romney beat Romney last night in Illinois 53-47) but when Romney morphs into Not Obama later this year, yeah, it’s a new ball game. Fehrnstrom knows this. Village knows this. GOP voters know this.
Nothing shocking here.
