We do have some Iowa news and one innuendo after all... Krusty has the skoop on Brian Kennedy joining Mitt Romney's Iowa team as a consultant. Kennedy was formerly the lead consultant for Bill Frist's VOLPAC. Kennedy also was the Chairman of the Republican Party of Iowa and ran a failed primary campaign for the open seat in the 1st Congressional District this past year.

Kennedy's decision to go with Romney is not surprising, given his close relationship with Chief Iowa Romney Advising Aficionado Extraordinaire David Kochel as well as with Romney Chair Doug Gross. Nonetheless, it is a great pick-up. Kennedy is well-respected in the Republican community and will bring useful contacts to Romney's team...

The other news isn't so much news as something we dreamed up while drinking our Amici and eating our Cheerios at Cooler HQ. This article in the Washington Post (scroll down) mentions that Mitt Romney hired former Bill Frist staffer (see the symmetry here) Carolyn Weyforth to be the Dep. Communications Director. This is a post that the Hotline had said former Nussle Communications Director Maria Comella was a likely candidate for. Given that she did not take that job, and that her former boss George Pataki's campaign is sinking fast, maybe just maybe she will be joining her former Nussle colleague Andrew Dorr in Camp Giuliani.

Again, we have no facts to base this on. This is truly in the realm of rumor/innuendo, but we thought it was a fun enough idea to put up on the blog. If the Giuliani team is really going to be announcing Iowa staff this month as they say they are, there's got to be someone on the list. So the Cooler's here to connect the dots for you!

Come on Cooler... Amici coffee sucks and here's why:

1) It tastes like shit
2) It's owned by douche bag slottery machine peddler Krause.

There, I feel better...
