Of course, Newt (“you can take picture with me for $50 as long as you buy my wife’s book”) and Li’l Ricky (“Russian commies all use birth control and are going straight to hell”) probably agree but fellow traveling with this guy is going to be a hard sell to the base. Then again, that base is ultra-low information (to put it mildly) so I’d guess they just blame it on the liberal media elite and wait for the inevitable Palin self-serving expression of righteous rage* on their behalf. And if that works, count on Mitt to agree with them. Or the Russian guy. Whatever is polling best at the moment.

*Good on ya? Really, “good on ya?”
