The Bryan Fischer Award is given to those who exhibit psychological projection on a mind-blowing scale. Gail Gitcho, a spokesman for Mitt Romney, gives us a spectacular example of this in an email sent to reporters in Michigan:
If you are reporting on Senator Santorum’s
response to the Rasmussen numbersspeech today, in which he will reportedly issue desperate and false attacks against Mitt Romney in an attempt to prop up his campaign, please use this quote from me.
“Rick Santorum is a Washington insider who is lashing out at Mitt Romney because he had a terrible debate performance. Back in 2008, Sen. Santorum endorsed Mitt Romney for president because of Mitt’s ‘conservative’ record. Now, Rick’s changed his tune. This sounds like another case of Rick Santorum abandoning his principles for his own political advantage.” – Gail Gitcho, Romney Communications Director
Romney for President
Yes, a spokesman for Mitt Freaking Romney just criticized someone else for abandoning principles for political advantage. Seriously, you can’t make this shit up.
