Spent the day at the Federalist Society and will have more on Rudy’s speech on Monday. As for the Chief Justice, his entertaining and humorous discourse on the trials and tribulations of James’ Madison’s Supreme Court nominations was impressive to say the least.
On the political front this appears to have been one of the stranger days of the campaign. Romney started with multiple statements by his press shop and garnered deserved sympathy for the anti- Mormon push polling. Then he bizarrely used it as an excuse to attack John McCain, attributing this somehow to McCain Feingold campagin finance reform. McCain’s spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker whacked him back and lowered the boom by providing an account of Romney’s own position on campaign finance reform. Next the calls were traced to an outfit in Utah with a number of Romney donors. By the end of the day all the campaigns had denounced the calls and everyone was scratching their heads. While there are competing conspiracy theories I think it is just plain weird. Others are on the hunt for the culprit.
