Will the "Etch a Sketch" Gaffe Bloody Mitt Romney?


Rick Santorum's campaign tweeted this photo of Santorum with an Etch-a-Sketch on the same day that a Mitt Romney campaign spokesman said the campaign is like "an Etch-a-Sketch -- you can shake it up and we start all over again," referring to a possible general election strategy. (Rick Santorum Campaign)

Mitt Romney's persuasive victory in the Illinois primary Tuesday night got me thinking of Washington Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond, who overcame a slow start last summer and finished the season with a burst of offensive power.

"To fight through that...that's what a big leaguer does," Desmond told the Washington Post, when asked about his early season slump.
Buckling down, keeping your head, making the effort, grinding it out. That is what big leaguers do - in baseball and in politics.
