"Beltway conservative scribes David Brooks and Bill Kristol denounced Romney as insensitive and out of touch." This statement is confusing. David Brooks is a liberal and Bill Kristol is a big govt neocon. Does Malkin actually think either of these guys are conservatives? No conservative would call a candidate out of touch for pointing out there are a lot of govt dependents in this country who will always vote for more freebies.
Democrats need to change their party mascot from the donkey to the squirrel. They divert the media's and the electorate's short attention spans with fleeting, fuzzy objects -- like the main canine character in the animated Pixar movie "Up," who was easily distracted from his main thoughts and serious duties by every last little moving trifle.

Embassy attacks? Quick, find a squirrel! Warnings ignored? Squirrel! American troops killed by long-plotting jihadis exploiting security weaknesses? Squirrel! First Amendment sabotage by White House officials in the name of political correctness? Squirrel! Chronic joblessness, high gas prices, exploding dependency? Squirrel! Squirrel! Squirrel!
