The campaign of GOP presdiential candidate Mitt Romney has cleverly and skillfully drawn the Rev. Al Sharpton into a high profile “religious slur” pissing match that helps the GOP candidate significantly every news cycle the story remains alive — especially as Sharpton tries to ease himself out, signaling the white flag of defeat.
Case in point: Sharpton’s appearance on Hardball tonite. The usual gladatorial mien of the Imus-slayer was nowhere to be found in his interview, and he already knows Romney has gotten the better of him.
Al Sharpton attacking you is made to order for Romney. Nice to watch Sharpton get nailed on this one. Good staff work, great candidate execution; a mini-sister soulja.
