The stories in question:

Republican National Committee Attacks Obama on Jobs–from Overseas Call Center

The Republican National Committee (RNC) used a call center based in the Philippines to hold a media conference attacking President Obama’s economic record, the Chicago Sun-Times reported today.The RNC didn’t help its image by pointing out that the call was run by Verizon. (AFL-CIO blog)

Mitt Romney Commissioned Pro-America Pins, Made Them In China

At a fundraiser in Virginia last night, Mitt Romney touted his experinece running the Salt Lake City Olympic Games in 2002 — a familiar refrain — but also introduced a new rhetorical line about something more specific: lapel pins….

Complicating Romney’s patriotic message is the fact that the pins were made in China, according to a website run by the Utah state government’s culture department, as TPM’s Evan McMorris-Santoro pointed out on Twitter. (Think Progress)

Remember Rachel Maddow’s theory that Herman Cain’s campaign was really a brilliant clever performance art project? I’m starting to think that’s true of the entire Republican Party.
