#1 Pure spin from the party that spins Sinister* stories

#2 As Romney pivots to the general election, the NY Times steps up to deflect onto Romney what fits Obama to a T.
Not surprising, it's what they do. They're just less and less subtle about it.

#3 Wonder if the Times realizes this is probably their last election no matter what so they might as well go out with a bang, or if some might reign it in and try for some credibility. .

#4 This is a hilarious article, but I remember when the aliens "Gephardtized" Steve Dallas's brain, turning him into a church-going New Age feminist vegan. I also recall McGovern and Kerry, among others, being accused of flip-flopping.
According to Wikipedia (I know, I know), the NYT mentions political flip-flopping back in 1890. (But they didn't have quantum theory back then.) Everything old is new again at the Times!

Fine, except that this time the candidates truly aren't that different. In the case of healthcare and global warming, they even share the same staff.

#6 Looks more + more like NEWT + RON are indeed in a race to be somebody's VEEP.

#7 A Feynman diagram of an encounter between a Romney and an anti-Romney. The resulting collision annihilates both, leaving behind a single electron and a $20 bill.
OK, that's funny! But then, I love quantum mechanics jokes.
The article, however, is a fine example of how the media will do *anything* to slime whoever even looks like they might be running against B-HO. Expect a lot more before November.
