Despite his big victory in Illinois on Tuesday, this was not a banner week for Mitt Romney. Indeed, he experienced a PR disaster when his longtime adviser Eric Fehrnstrom likened him to an Etch A Sketch: "You can kind of shake it up and we start all over again." Santorum and Gingrich quickly began brandishing the toys at campaign events. Will classic toys now become a 2012 leitmotif? Will Romney whip out a Slinky when he talks about Gingrich or a Mr. Potato Head when he goes after Santorum? Will Ron Paul feel left out and challenge the others to a round of Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots? Will voters forget about debates and use a Magic 8-Ball to determine who to vote for? One thing's for sure: No one who has been paying attention to this campaign will compare any of the candidates to a Lite-Brite.
