Romney’s new swagger; Bristol Palin’s show ends in tears; and more Rielle Hunter (read-this roundup)

Here’s what the Loop is reading Tuesday morning:

Mitt Romney, finding his groove. (Larry Downing/Reuterrs)

“Life’s a Tripp”The reality show starring single mom Bristol Palin (daughter of whatshername) seems a mashup of its genre’s conventions. The debut episode ends with Bristol in tears. Reports our colleague Hank Steuver: “Between sobs, she existentially wonders why she can’t escape the constant attention, criticism and sniping. The answer (to pull the plug on the hype machine) truly eludes her.”

Really, another tell-all? — Great timing for Rielle Hunter, the woman who had a secret love child with John Edwards. Her new book is debuting just as Edwards trial ended, and we’ve all been reminded of the tawdry affair.
