    Stericycle is the kill with a third party ad hitting Christian Radio and evangelical areas 10 days before the election or right before early voting starts. Hitting with Romney profiting from abortion in those areas would be a catastrophe for the GOP. But it has to be third party.

        Stericycle is just one item on the Mittney Menu of Misery:

        Presidential candidate Mitt Romney promised in 2007 he would shed any investments that conflicted with Republican positions on hot-button domestic and foreign policy issues.

        But Romney's family trusts kept some of those holdings and repeatedly bought new ones until 2010, when they were finally sold off for more than $3 million, according to a detailed review of Romney's financial records by The Associated Press.

        Recently disclosed tax returns for three family trust funds for Romney, his wife, Ann, and their adult children show scores of trades in companies whose business operations are inconsistent with Republican Party stances that Romney favors on Iran, China, stem cell research, abortion and other issues

        Some of the largest stock trades made by the Romney trust involved companies that have operated in Iran. Romney has urged toughened sanctions and military steps against Iran and has called for strategic divestment of firms that do business there.

        In 2007, his trustee said he had sold off Romney investments in French and Italian energy companies with business ties to Iran.

        But between mid-2009 and mid-2010, the Romney trusts made large investments in securities from BNP Paribas, a French bank with long-standing operations in Iran -- Associated Press, Feb. 2012

        The new Mittney campaign song:
        There may be trouble ahead
        but while there's magical
        hot pants and polls make me cry:
        let's face the voters and lie.
        (with apologies to the great Irving Berlin)

      That would make it a landslide. Imagine a super PAC ad blasing Romney for profiting from the disposal of the bodies of murdered babies. Mention his wife donating to Planned Parenthood. Play it on rightwing radio stations. Nasty stuff.

      Perhaps make it for some third party candidate.
