God, and C-Span, Are Always Watching

Over at Swampland, Time magazine's blog, Adam Sorenson looks at how video clips are changing the face of campaigns.

And now, as Sorenson points out and countless candidates have discovered to the great discomfort, C-Span or someone else with a video camera is always watching too.

As for Romney's taped comments about being a "progressive," which are the proximate cause of Sorenson's blog, what to say except that Mitt Romney has proven yet again that he will say almost anything to please his interlocutor, that he is a man with a highly fungible core, and that what he really, really cares about is the camera angle.
