The Flying Mormon

Forty-five days before the presidential election, Mitt Romney's campaign co-chairman, former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty, has resigned to take a job with a Wall Street lobbying firm.

Fox News will probably find a way to spin the news of Pawlenty's departure as a "win" for Romney, but it sure does look like the rats are abandoning ship.

Roberto De Vido is a communications consultant, writer, cartoonist and jack of many trades. The former chief of Tucson Sentinel’s East Asia Bureau, he now lives in California (make of that what you will).

“I am grateful to have had the opportunity to serve, but I am now moving on and committed to focusing fully on this new opportunity.”
