Etch A Sketch sales up over 1,500% after Romney campaign gaffe


Ohio Art told Raw Story on Thursday that the company welcomed a spike in share prices and toy sales after a Romney staffer’s gaffe that compared the campaign to an Etch A Sketch.

“It’s very exciting,” Ohio Art spokeswoman Nicole Gresh remarked.

During a Wednesday interview on CNN, John Fugelsang had asked Romney Communications Director Eric Fehrnstrom if an extended primary against Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum would “force the governor to tack so far to the right it would hurt him with moderate voters in the general election?”

“I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign,” Fehrnstrom replied. “Everything changes.”

“It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch,” he added. “You can kind of shake it up and restart all over again.”
