Mitt Romney has apparently suspended his campaign for the Republican nomination to join a side show arranged the DNC.
It's been said that the more people get to know Mitt Romney, the more they dislike him. He has often been seen as “the stealth candidate,” hiding in the shadows and either refusing to take positions on important issues or waffling back and forth to fit the day's audience, and leaving much of the actual campaigning to advertising executives. Now he's apparently dropped out to participate in a side-show.

Democratic strategist and CNN contributor Hilary Rosen apologized Thursday to Ann Romney, wife of presumptive GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, for criticizing her choice to be a stay-at-home mother -- but not before sparking a political firestorm with her remarks.
What you have is Mitt Romney running around the country saying, "Well, you know, my wife tells me that what women really care about are economic issues. And when I listen to my wife, that's what I'm hearing."Classic 20th Century political theater to be sure, the likes of which we haven't seen since (link) Nancy Pelosi worked with Newt Gingrich in December. Rosen wants “working women” to vote for Democrats. Getting the Gender War up and running again is pretty easy. Most people know that what takes effort is not to have one. Of course, the controversy sparked Hillary Clinton quotes on Facebook, now representing all women everywhere against the oppression of men.
Guess what? His wife has actually never worked a day in her life. She's never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing in terms of how do we feed our kids, how do we send them to school, and how do we -- why we worry about their future.
Good for Romney? He wants a new distraction now that he's facing Ron Paul by his lonesome. He also hopes to pick up some Santorum voters with some “social conservative” lines. But now he's apparently running against Hilary Rosen. She's not in the race for the Republican nomination.
