Have you read that story in which a duplicitous public figure sends a trusted underling to a far-off land carrying a secret conspiratorial message for a powerful and shadowy authoritarian overlord? What's that story called?
Oh right! It's called that article in today's New York Times…
Matt Romney, a son of the Republican presidential nominee, traveled to Moscow this week seeking Russian investors for his California-based real estate firm just days before his father is to wrap up a campaign in which he has vowed to take a tougher stance with the Kremlin…
But while in Moscow, Mr. Romney told a Russian known to be able to deliver messages to Mr. Putin that despite the campaign rhetoric, his father wants good relations if he becomes president, according to a person informed about the conversation.
Sounds pretty good! Very exciting stuff! I'd totally read this!
Though, I don't see why they had to reboot this story so soon after it was originally released back in March.
