“I suppose it could have been worse,” said Romney’s spokesguy Eric Fehrnstrom. “He could have gotten a mention on ‘John from Cincinnati.’ ”
This is in response to a question about how the candidate felt about being referenced on “Big Love, ” the HBO show about polygamy in Utah.
The response shows that the spokesperson understands the context of the question, and basically makes it a non-issue. If the spokesperson had tried to further distance Romney from the question of polygamy, then there might have been a whole blow-up about the comments.
Well done Eric Fehrnstrom!
