If there's a glimmer of hope that Mitt Romney's time at Bain Capital and how awful it was for those that worked for companies where they went in there and laid off workers and raided their pension funds isn't going to be ignored completely by our corporate media, I'd say this skit is one of them. They didn't go after him directly for Bain's record, but they did hit him for the "I like being able to fire people" gaffe.

It's a theme I doubt Romney will be happy to defend as more of them do cover what was in those attack ads by Newt Gingrich's friend's PAC that were airing in South Carolina.

Can you help us out?
