Do You Support Mitt or Hillary?

By on 3.30.07 | 7:45AM

The folks over at Blogs for Mitt seem to be getting mighty sensitive. On my article from yesterday, "Jon" writes:

The American Spectator's David Hogberg thinks using the word "Epiphany" will bring some new life to the already dead "flip flop" horse. Sorry, David. You don't even rate a "nice try" label. Do you expect presidential candidates to emerge from the womb with and iron clad policy paper in hand? Where is your condemnation of Hillary for her shift from being a College Republican president to a radical leftist? Better luck next time.

Two points:

1. Womb? I thought Romney had a fair amount of political experience, having recently been governor and having run for Senate in 1994. I would expect someone like Romney who has reached the age of 60 to have some pretty solid positions. On the other hand, if Romney has just emerged from the womb, then shouldn't he really be running for class president?

2. I'm not really sure what to make of the crack about Hillary, other than I wonder if Mitt supporters are now going to insinuate that every conservative who criticizes their man is really a closet Clinton supporter.
