Are They. Aren't They. Where Are They. Who Are They.

Paging Romneybots. What's up with this? The other day, Streiff posted this post about the tools Zinni and Ross being advisors to Mitt Romney (along with Bremer, would you really *want* those guys to be known as your advisors?).
He was subsequently asked to post the full list of advisors, which he did. But it seems that someone needs to clarify the list. After posting it, the list turned out not to be online, at least at the time of posting. I certainly trust the Romney staffer who sent the list, and I assume it is a misunderstanding, but now it seems more than one person on the list of advisors might not be one. Kissinger is on McCain's finance team and the rumor mill suggests Victor David Hanson and one or two others are not, or at least do not consider themselves, "Foreign Policy Advisors" to the campaign.
I assume there is an innocent explanation to all of this, but it seems someone needs to do some explaining before this controversy blows up into a 1994 debate situation. In the meantime, my suggestion for the Romney campaign mascot is attached hereto as Exhibit A.
Ed's Note: Today, the Romney staffer who sent the list sought to clarify that they were not a board of "Foreign Policy Advisors," but rather experts Gov. Romney talked with. That had not been made clear at the time of the original posting, subsequent emails, nor in the thread related to the post. So, perhaps just an innocent misunderstanding over semantic. And yeah, were the primary held today, I'd still vote Romney, but Rudy is looking more and more attractive in that candidate sort of way.
