Brief points I always like the bit when the fact checkers change the criteria. To the one, that's fine; to the other, we ought not pretend that what the fact checkers find when they change the criteria is necessarily something new. And then there's the hilarious bit about how the Romney campaign thinks the fact checkers shouldn't apply to the Republican campaign. We have to remember that Republicans are invoking a standard the Romney campaign refuses to apply to itself. Which, of course, is nothing new; Mitt Romney's demands for special accommodation—tax returns, policy details, performance assessment, and as of last week, truth itself—are getting just a bit ridiculous.
