And the award for best-timed film release goes to … Premiering in Canada today (and the U.S. later this Spring, though they may want to bump that release date up) is a film called “Pink Ribbons, Inc.,” a Canadian film which purports to show the dark side of the Komen for the Cure breast cancer movement along with the “pinkwashing” movement. Seriously. It comes out this weekend in Canada. Of all weekends. So, on top of a PR disaster that strongly damaged their brand is a movie whose release has been planned for months that shows the hypocrisy of said brand. Talk about good timing.

"I oppose the Obamacare mandate": That quote is very telling, because the truth is, Newt does oppose the Obamacare mandate — because it’s Obama’s. Hearing him musing about the merits of a health insurance mandate just a day before, on Meet The Press, may make you think there’s some sort of hypocrisy, or flip-flop here, but there isn’t. You see, this mandate we’ve got now… it’s Obama’s! Seriously, though — this is nothing new for Newt. You may remember his utter reversal on whether he would intervene in Libya, a clear instance of him espousing policy beliefs simply to appear opposite Obama, rather than having any conviction or integrity behind them. source
