The Man Behind 'The Stench'
His name is Craig Robinson (left, and no, it's not Jonah Hill) and as you will see he does not claim he was misquoted. He still plans to vote for Romney. He loves him some Ryan. "I used the word stench," he tries to explain, "to basically say that Paul Ryan will have plenty of baggage to deal with should he and Romney come up short on November 6th. I don’t think anyone would disagree with that, but my choice of words has elevated my comment to something I didn’t necessary intend it to be." Smells like team spirit.
And he says wiping off horrid smells nothing new for GOPers, for example: "Rick Santorum had to wash off the stench of losing his 2006 Senate campaign before being considered as a serious presidential candidate."
is author of a dozen books (click on covers at right), including the new "THE TUNNELS: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill." He was the longtime editor of Editor & Publisher. Email: email@example.com. Twitter: @GregMitch
