From Etch-a-Sketch to Etched In Glass

Maureen Dowd, in her Sunday column, revisits that famous claim from months ago--that Romney would "shake" the Etch-a-Sketch after getting his party's nod and move to the center.  Now it's clear, especially after the Ryan pick, that is not happening:  "Romney never did shake up the Etch A Sketch. He remains too insecure about his base. Romney and Obama are both running for their bases — and Mitt is running from his own elusive better angels.

"And that is what’s disturbing about the prospect of a President Romney. Even though he once seemed to have sensible, moderate managerial instincts, he won’t stop ingratiating himself with the neo-Neanderthals." Ouch.
