Romney Aide's Comment A Boon For Etch A Sketch

Mitt Romney aide Eric Fehrnstrom recently compared his candidate's campaign to a shakable Etch-A-Sketch toy. The gaffe wasn't good for Romney, but it was good for Etch A Sketch. Sales increased by 1,500 percent and Ohio Art saw its stock price nearly double. Trying to make light of the situation, Fehrnstrom tweeted "Etch A Sketch stock is up? Psst, I'll mention Mr. Potato Head next. Buy Hasbro."
