This week for Clutch I tackle Newsweek/Daily Beast editor Tina Brown's love for an attention grabbing cover -- whether that attention is good or not. Like the little kid in class who will take love and hate in equal doses since it both counts as a form of EVERYONE LOOK AT ME, Newsweek may have used President Obama as a punching bag for its latest cover, but history suggests by next month Obama could be awesome, or it could be his opponent Mitt Romney's turn again to get punched in the nards by a periodical. You never know.

In my first ever post for MSNBC's new Lean Forward web site, I tackled America's favorite crazy grandpa, Mad Dawg Joe Biden, as he tossed some red meat to a mostly black crowd in Virginia this week. Papa Joe suggested that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney wants to put folks "back in chains" with his fiscal policies. This means it's time for the over-the-top "playing the race (war) card" accusations (and counter-accusations) to begin!
Yet somehow, it all seems so familiar.
One of the talking points meant to “humanize” newly appointed veep candidate and Mitt Romney second banana Paul Ryan is that he got a six pack blowing $120 bucks and countless hours going hard thanks to the popular exercise DVD series P90X.
In my brief time in D.C., particularly around 2011 after the GOP took the House, I started hearing quite a bit about Congress Critters and their ilk going hard using P90X. Soon a rash of nerdy, GOP (and some Dem) Butterfaces with washboard abs started humping about the Capitol, getting too flirtatiously aggressive while I was politely trying to get drunk on the rooftop of the W Hotel.
