Friday’s p-Op quiz: ‘Etch A Sketch’ edition

Mitt Romney’s feet and mouth must be made of magnets. They seem to slam into each other after every major do-or-die primary victory. For instance, after his Florida victory last month, the multimillionaire scion of a wealthy Michigan family whose father was thrice eleceted governor of that state said, “I’m not concerned about the very poor.” Now a Romney campaign adviser has gotten into the act after Tueday’s blow-out Illinois primary win.

“I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign,” said Eric Fehrnstrom. “Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch a Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and we start all over again.” Wow. That’s not the sort of thing you should be saying if you’re on the campaign of a guy who the far right thinks is a moderate or liberal strutting uncomfortably in an ill-fitting conservative suit.  But I digress.....

It’s p-Op quiz time! There’s an Etch A Sketch question. And ones involving Santorum, protection, Osama bin Laden and a suggestion of a National Day of No Outrage. So, sharpen your pixels and get crackin’.
