Dear Commons Community,
Here is some light fare from the Huffington Post as we begin the weekend.
Bloomberg reports that the maker of the Etch A Sketch toy saw its stock surge on Thursday. The share price of Ohio Art Co. nearly tripled days after Romney’s campaign aide, Eric Fehrnstrom, told CNN, “You hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch. You can kind of shake it up, and we start all over again.”
Romney’s opponents have pounced on the gaff, describing it as further evidence that Romney’s political positions are unpredictable and inconsistent.
The Associated Press reports that Ohio Art is thrilled to be a part of the national conversation. The company sent a huge box of Etch A Sketches to all the presidential campaigns as a thank you gift, according to the AP.
Talking Points Memo notes that Ohio Art Chairman Bill Killgallon has donated to Republicans in the past, but as of now, he has yet to donate to any presidential campaign.
