Journalist Cambell Brown (formerly of CNN - remember?) has a mind of her own, despite being female and married to a man who is "somebody" in the Romney campaign.  (Imagine that.)


She's so over people who discredit her journalistic pieces based on who her spouse is (i.e., "She's married to a Romney guy"), rather than possible factual and logical weaknesses in the assertions she makes.

Campbell is married to Dan Senor, a Republican strategist working for Mitt Romney.  She argues that her marriage has little impact on her ability to remain objective as a professional journalist.  

Do you agree with Campbell? Do you think her critics would be as vocal if she were a man married to someone working in a partisan job?

Watch Campbell vent on Morning Joe, and then share your opinion in the comments yo.

(And by the way, here's Campbell and Dan's wedding announcement from The New York Times, just because we LOVE reading about weddings.)

This is hoo-larious.  Mitt Romney tells attendees at the Radio & Television Correspondents' Association dinner why he dropped his bid to be the next prez.

 

Newsweek columnist Joe Klein on Mitt Romney, who has faced criticsm and skepticsm for flip-flopping on the issues:

"...I don't think Mitt Romney believes a word he says on any of the red-meat issues that he's been using to bludgeon his opponents.  Which is why he says those things only on television, where he doesn't have to look anyone in the eye."

Ouch!

Tancredo quits

Republican presidential candidate Tom Tancredo has dropped out of the race and endorsed Mitt Romney.  Tancredo, a Congressman from Colorado, was at the bottom of the polls.

Holy guacamole!  Mike Huckabee is 22 points ahead of Mitt Romney in the latest Newsweek poll of likely voters in Iowa.  Barack Obama is 6 points ahead of Hillary Clinton in Iowa among likely voters.

mitt_romney_ from mitt website.jpgVoters in Iowa and New Hampshire received phone calls from a mysterious source that questioned Mitt Romney's Mormon faith.  Such calls are known as "push polls" - "surveys" that are intended to spread negative information about a candidate, rather than collect information about a voter's opinion of a candidate.

Voters who received calls were asked questions that could give a negative impression of Romney based on his faith, such as, "Some people say the Mormon church is a cult, would that make you more or less likely to vote for Mitt Romney?" Conversely, the calls included questions that could lead to a positive impression of rival John McCain, such as, "If you knew [John McCain] was a prisoner of war in Vietnam, would that make you more or less likely to vote for him?"

New Hampshire is investigating the source of the calls, as New Hampshire law requires all campaign advertising to identify the candidate being supported.  John McCain and Rudy Giuliani have denied that their campaigns had anything to do with the calls. Whoever did it, this is so not cool.

In an interview with Matt Lauer, Sen. Larry Craig called out frienemy Gov. Mitt Romney (MA) for not supporting him after he was arrested in a public men's room for soliciting sex from an undercover cop. Sen. Craig had served as Senate liason for Romney's presidential campaign, but he resigned when the news of his sex scandal broke.  At that time, Romney said that he was disappointed in Craig's "disgusting" behavior

"I was very proud of my association with Mitt Romney," Craig told Lauer. "... And he not only threw me under his campaign bus, he backed up and ran over me again."

Hmm.  We beg to differ.  We would say that Romney threw Craig under his campaign bus, backed up, ran over him again, hopped out of the bus to check to see if Craig was really dead, got in a few licks while Craig lay flattened on the ground, then backed up his bus again a few times just to make extra sure that Craig was super dead. 

Alas, Romney's efforts failed, and Craig lived to file an appeal today to overturn a judge's refusal to allow him to withdraw his guilty plea in the case. And, of course, bring about even more negative publicity to the Republican party by doing an interview with Matt Lauer about the scandal, which will air Tueday night on Matt Lauer Reports and Wednesday morning on Today

Yeah, we saw the Republican debate last night.  First we watched Romney and Giuliani have a few catfights, and then we watched paint dry Fred Thompson say a few words. 

 MSNBC's Maria Bartiromo (go girl!) and Chris Matthews moderated.
