Briefly: Romney's display of idiocy won't change the minds of too many voters. Those who believe Obama is on the side of the terrorists weren't going to vote for him anyway; there will be some who are sufficiently disgusted as to decide to vote for Obama.

But what Romney really lost was the Village and the press. It has become impossible for the pundit crowd to pretend any longer that this man should be allowed anywhere near the White House.

Paul Krugman's blog

Romney has lost the Joe Scarboroughs and Dana Milbanks and Mark Halperins.

Without the protective top cover of the "non-partisan" punditry, Romney will have a much more difficult time advancing his lies. And without lies he's got nothing.

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.
