In what is being viewed as an attempt to re-brand their campaign as a more mature and lighter campaign alternative to what they have been so far, the Romney/Ryan campaign has retained the services of the laid off Tonight Show writers.

Romney/Ryan campaign officials have decided to drop the "Town Hall" format they have been using at rallies. Instead, Mitt Romney will be seated behind a desk with Paul Ryan,  adjacent to him on a comfortable couch. The advisers feel this will allow for even more whimsical banter and redundant back and forth, that their candidates are already loved for.

It will also let the campaign introduce four minutes of commercial spots for every eight minutes of "Rally Time" thus ensuring each rally makes a profit.

One of the new writers said "we are confident we can make these guys funnier and lighter than they already are".

This new format will also be more in line with GOP standards and practices, that rallies are more for entertainment and fund raising than factual information.

We will follow this story as it further develops.

STORY UPDATE: Campaign Layoffs

The Romney/Ryan Campaign has announced, effective immediately, the campaign writing staff has been laid off.

All future writing work will be outsourced to a Chinese, campaign resource firm in the Wu Tang Province of China.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
