Fluff-Fest: Kessler Fawns Over Romney, ACU
Topic: Newsmax

Newsmax is ever so slowly resigning itself to the inevitability of Mitt Romney being the Republican presidential nominee. Another sign: It's letting Ronald Kessler engage in a little more Romney-fluffing.

In his April 2 column, Kessler hauls out American Conservative Union's Al Cardenas to call for Romney's rivals to suspend their campaigns. Romney lets Cardenas respond to accusations of Romney's flip-flopping and claim that "Romney’s character is flawless."

Kessler also fluffs the ACU, proclaiming it "preeminent organization representing the full spectrum of conservative thought" and its congressional ratings "the gold standard for assessing members’ ideology." Cardenas gets fluffed too when Kessler irrelevently recounts how "Cardenas and his family fled Fidel Castro’s Cuba with only the clothes on their back." Just consider that payback for when the ACU, under the leadership of Cardenas' predecessor David Keene, gave Kessler its "Robert Novak Journalist of the Year Award" in 2010.
