Republicans draw more convention coverage than do Democrats in The Post

You might be surprised by some statistics that my assistant, Alison Coglianese, and I drew up in looking back at The Post’s coverage of the Republican and Democratic national conventions. We counted every story, column, editorial, graphic and photo in all editions of the paper. Read full article > >

Republicans win the election among last week’s TV viewers

Fox News Channel’s 10 to 11-ish p.m. coverage of Clint Eastwood’s debate with a chair — followed by Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech — was the country’s second-most-watched TV program last week. Romney, Eastwood & Chair finished the week trailing only Howard Stern & “America’s Got Talent” on NBC; the telecasts averaged 9.1 million viewers and 9.9 million viewers, respectively.

Mitt Romney exited Bain Capital with rare tax benefits in retirement

Before Mitt Romney retired from Bain Capital , the enormously profitable investment firm he founded, he made sure to lock in his gains, both realized and expected, for years to come. He did so, in part, the way millions of other Americans do — with the tax benefits of an individual retirement account. But he was able to turbocharge the impact of those advantages and other tax breaks in his severance package from Bain in a way that few but the country’s super-rich can ever hope to do.

Ann Romney’s ham-handed message

TAMPA Loved the ironing board. Hated the patronizing pander to women. The most affecting part of Ann Romney’s convention speech was — no surprise here — the personal testimonial. Her description of “this boy I met at a high school dance,” tall and nervous, polite to her folks but “really glad when my parents weren’t around.” Early married life in a basement apartment, eating tuna fish and pasta on a fold-down ironing board-turned-dining table.

Ann Romney’s speech offers prime-time chance to show Mitt’s appeal

TAMPA — Where Mitt Romney can be stiff in public, Ann Romney is warm. She laughs easily and provides glimpses of a private down-to-earth Mitt who irons his own shirts and does his own laundry. That, anyway, is the portrait the campaign has been trying to paint through a series of new, intimate interviews with Ann Romney, 63, the one campaign surrogate they believe could dispel a hardening image that her husband is unapproachable and cold.

Ann Romney is tough, OK? Claims Obama wants to ‘kill Romney’

I believe Ann Romney when she says she’s tougher than she was even four years ago. And nobody who’s raised five boys and gone up against both breast cancer and multiple sclerosis, as she has, was any hothouse orchid to begin with. Read full article > >

Kathleen Parker: Ann Romney has a horse. So what?

The punch line is at least as old as the eldest baby boomer: “I didn’t get a pony.” Here’s Jerry Seinfeld : “I hated those kids [who had ponies]. In fact, I hate anyone that ever had a pony when they were growing up.” Read full article > >

Twitter becomes a key real-time tool for campaigns

The bully pulpit has a new kind of altar call: “Tweet them. We’ve got a hashtag. Here’s the hashtag for you to tweet them: #dontdoublemyrate.” President Obama repeated that Twitter hashtag twice more during a Tuesday speech opposing an increase in student loan interest rates. For good measure, he even had his Chapel Hill, N.C., audience chant it back to him. Read full article > >

On TV, legions of ‘strategists.’ A few probably really are.

On TV, just about everyone with a political opinion seems to be a “strategist.” Even when they’re not. The label is bipartisan and multi-network. CNN fills its air with people identified on-screen as either a “Republican strategist” or a “Democratic strategist.” So do Fox News and MSNBC. The broadcast networks shorthand their guests that way, too. Read full article > >
