Right on cue, Ned gives us the latest spin: The Romney campaign gets desperate.

Can we PLEASE not talk about how Romney is faring in all of this?

The really sad thing about Ned's use of that photo? The Libyans in that picture were probably trying to help the Ambassador, not to hurt him.

The Libyan doctor who treated Mr Stevens in hospital said he had died of severe asphyxiation, apparently from smoke inhalation, with no other injuries, and that he had tried for 90 minutes to revive him.

He was the only American brought into the Benghazi Medical Centre and initially nobody realised he was the ambassador, Ziad Abu Zeid told the Associated Press news agency.

No, Romney made it about Romney, and managed to get both his feet and most of his ass into his mouth this time.

This is your candidate, Ned. Are you proud? Or are you finally realizing just how far up the creek your party is?

And he managed to bring to light the fact that most of his foreign policy advisers are idiot left-overs from the Bush administration. Which is bad in two ways. It reminds people what an awful clusterfuck Bush made of our foreign policy AND reminds people that there was in fact a president Bush and for 8 years he fucked everything up.

What's strange is that members of Romney's campaign actually work for the "LSM." You'd think such a nefarious conflict of interests would result on them painting Romney unfavorably, but you'd be wrong.

What? Did one of them get a "thrill up their leg"?

You are aware that George "too tall" Stephanopoulos, the Karl Rove of the Klinton administration, is an ABC News anchor and host of "This Week" right?

Nice try.

Yep. And mixed in with the misdirection is a hefty dose of false equivalence.

Ah, excellent! Another specimen for Ned's canned-response-of-mediocrity collection.

You truly are a man of wit and wisdom, Ned. I humbly bow to your continued eloquence.

You've got it all wrong, Ned -- this is where you're supposed to dismissively refer to me as a woman, which is an insult, apparently. Here, I'll help:

Don't get your panties in a bunch, dear.


Don't worry about the rest -- I see you've replaced the "C" in "Clinton" with a "K" already, and I got "Dims," unflattering pics of Democratic women, and emoticons further upthread. I'm here to help, Ned.

You are aware that he wasn't an ABC anchor while he was a Clinton adviser.

After LEAVING the White House at the end of Clinton's first term, Stephanopoulos became a political analyst for ABC News and served as a correspondent on This Week

Doh, sorry, I brought up those icky facts that you don't care for too much.
