Sketching the truth

This polite, matter of fact verbal exchange was broadcast on CNN March 21, 2012:
John Fugelsang: Is there a concern that Santorum and Gingrich might force the governor to tack so far to the right it would hurt him with moderate voters in the general election.

Eric Fehrnstrom: Well, I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all of over again.
Well, Santorum and Gingrich are gone: if we are lucky, they will enter the dustbin of history. Willard Mitt Romney only has Ron Paul in the way to a Republican coronation. Paul has been remarkably steady, he has his percentage of loyal supporters of tenacity. He has a group of libertarians, and anti-government electorate, and pulls in some people whom are disgusted with virtually all politicians. Paul is a favorite amongst many whom would not vote otherwise, or would gulp some air, hold their breath, and pinch their noses tightly while voting for the Repuke de jour. It is strange none of the professional blatherers have suggested Paul for vice-President.

Mittens has been running for President since (at least) the Utah Olympics. He may be another man, who feels entitled to the office Daddy ran for. We know how disastrous that was last time. Now, Mittens is dull, loves money, and will say anything; in this he is not unlike ghwb. The only difference is even the rank and file of his own party admit it.

Fehrnstrom is so blasé, so nonchalant, he says it on national television and invents a colorful metaphor befitting a satirist. Previous individuals who had his post, and still speak now: Gillespie, Mehlman, Castellanos—never relent, in continuous, aggressive, ridiculous lies. Fehrnstrom was considered very competent in the campaign, yet not as visible as the aforementioned had been. Fehrnstrom told the truth. His candidate lies often, easily, even with fervor; but the conviction is missing. Do Fehrnstrom, and Mittens so rely on the collective amnesia of Americans that they have no worry in speaking the words they said?

A Frenchman presented his device at International Toy Show in 1959 at Nuremberg. He called it "L'Ecran Magique" (the magic screen), the next year it was made in Bryan, Ohio; in 2001 China. It is no accident that it looks like a television.
