Mitt Romney's a'scared to face children. It's a sure bet they'd want to talk about Big Bird.
The right billed a BS campaign finance non-troversy as an "explosive" scandal that would "rock" the Obama campaign. Not surprisingly, they're having trouble getting anyone serious to give a crap about the story.

Pew comes out with a poll showing that Romney has erased Obama's lead and moving ahead nationally. However, Ed Kilgore points out that the study was in the field during a period that would perfectly reflect a post-debate Romney bounce -- in other words, it's unlikely that these will be lasting numbers.
More bounce evidence: Gallup's tracker has Romney down 5, which looks a lot like a bounce coming down.
