Politico reported earlier this afternoon that the Republican National Convention “quickly pulled down a draft copy of its 2012 platform” after “an apparent staff error led to its posting” on the RNC website.
I have to wonder, with all of the press this past week covering the dumb remarks made by Todd Akin (R-MO) and Mitt Romney’s jest “birther” comment, was the posting really an accident? Or was it the GOP’s way of finally shifting the news back to the Republican message?
If it was the latter, kudos to whomever’s brilliant idea it was. And if it was truly an accident, I suspect someone will fade quietly into the Tampa night.
