Eric Fehrnstrom, the top Romney advisor whose Etch A Sketch gaffe yesterday was almost as thoughtless as the things Mitt Romney actually says, is taking the flack in stride. After learning Etch-A-Sketch toy company's stock rose 200 percent today, Fehrnstrom tweeted: "Etch A Sketch stock is up? Psst, I'll mention Mr. Potato Head next. Buy Hasbro."
Fehrnstrom tried to clear things up with the Washington Post by making fun of Joe Biden. Low blow, dude, low blow.
“I thought it was pretty clear with that Etch a Sketch comment I was referring to the race, and not the candidate, but such is politics. I’m expecting a call from Joe Biden thanking me for taking the heat off him for a couple of days.”
