A bad case of the Ricketts

So the big buzz today was about this really stupid plan, apparently underwritten by wingnut billionaire Joe Ricketts, to resurrect the Rev. Jeremiah Wright smear against President Obama. The secret plan was leaked this morning and suddenly, these guys are all "what plan?" Ricketts denies having anything to do with it ignoring the fact his name is all over the imbecilic documents.

Romney and Grandpa McCain both made statements this afternoon condemning the effort but Romney has a tiny problem in the repudiation department. It seems it was only three months ago Mitt brought up the good Reverend Wright himself while pandering to the crazy base on Sean Hannity's show. So how did the Great White Hope of the GOP handle a press query about this today?
ROMNEY: I’m actually gonna — I’m not familiar precisely with exactly what I said, but I stand by what I said, whatever it was. I’ll go back and take a look at what was said there.
Yep. It's this kind of smooth, think on your feet statesmanship that's going to keep our foreign relations on a positive track. But to be fair, he is still very much in please the base mode, and it's good enough for the rubes.

Does he really want to make religion an issue? Is he that stupid?

Think he would like to feed the paranoia of the base without leaving any of his own fingerprints on it.
