Eric Fehrnstrom, Mitt Romney’s "loathsome $150,000-a-year spokesman" (in the words of the late lamented mystery blogger behind Romney is a Fraud), has apparently decided to play the stem cell research issue for straight comedy. Get this – he says that Romney has "a deep and thoughtful understanding of some of the grave ethical issues at stake in this debate." Ha. Haha. Hahaha. Good one, Eric! Please, stop it – you’re killing me! Hahaha!
Seriously, lots of words (such as "wildly unprincipled") spring to mind to describe Romney’s stand on this issue, but "deep" and "thoughtful" aren’t among them. Unless his deep thoughts are about how to win the presidency. But I doubt that’s what Fehrnstrom had in mind.
