Well, not all Republicans are distancing themselves from Mitt Romney's ham-fisted comments on the tragedy in Libya. Ever the good Christian soldier, 1st CD candidate John Koster issued a press release yesterday making his own ham-fisted effort to politicize the death of a US ambassador:

"In a post-9/11 world, especially following the recent and violent revolutions in the Middle East, America's political leadership needs to be on high-alert and maintain constant vigilance of American interests abroad. At this time, it is difficult to separate the lack of leadership from the Obama Administration and the apparent need of the US Embassy staff in Cairo to apologize for America's 1st Amendment," John Koster said Wednesday.

Because nothing says "leadership" like dutifully repeating the lies coming from the top of the ticket.
