Luntz Caps


I didn't catch all of last night's Paul-less Republican debate on Fox, but the post-game focus group conducted by unreliable pollster Frank Luntz—which is being touted this morning as proof of the long-awaited Romney comeback—struck me straight away as having all the authenticity and heavily caffeinated pace of a Ronco commercial. You couldn't have scripted a more effective infomercial for Our Man Mitt (who, by most accounts, was pretty good).

So it came as little surprise that (via Mickey Kaus) at least one of the chosen Luntzites turned out to be … familiar.

Reminds me of a conversation I had with one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's henchwomen back in 2003, a longtime GOP activist who told me Luntz was an old friend and that she goes on those focus groups "all the time."
