Via Newsbusters, a spiffy example of what I said in the last post about using dumb distractions to create a sour impression of Romney. When you can’t talk about $5 trillion in new debt, talk about a $990 shirt that the candidate’s wife bought with her own money. When you can’t talk about unemployment dropping below eight percent, talk about car elevators. If this economy ends up in a double dip, we may well see an “all Seamus, all the time” format on MSNBC for the month of October. Can’t wait for Martin Bashir’s dramatic eulogy for Man’s Best Friend on Election Day eve.

I’m not going to spoil the surprise of who delivers a reality check to O’Donnell about the cost of Michelle Obama’s shoes. You’ll just have to watch; that’s why I post the clips, my friends. Exit question: Doesn’t this guy wear $88 socks? Hello?
