Oh, my! Perhaps that explains this indecipherable frantic tweet that Mr. Fineman posted earlier.

#Obama in dm register tre—

Heh. Cat got your tweet, toots? Twitter users can’t resist some jabs over that one.

@howardfineman your tweets are really hard to decode.—
Dave Devitt (@sydcon) October 28, 2012

@howardfineman Is that you Senator Grassley?—
Gus (@Gus_802) October 28, 2012

Looking at @howardfineman's recent TL, I'm convinced he's drunk or dictates his columns at HP.—
Slim Pickens (@Mattie96) October 28, 2012

HuffPo editor and MSNBC analyst Fineman continues. Basically, that Des Moines Register endorsement of Romney? A pretty big deal.

#Obama admitted in DM register off the record interview that he hadn't talked to the edit board in 4 years!! Political malpractice.—
Howard Fineman (@howardfineman) October 28, 2012

So DMR endorsed Romney. Obama deserves what he gets in Iowa for this case of Political sloth.—
Howard Fineman (@howardfineman) October 28, 2012

Anger in my corner of Twittersphere cuz i said DM Reg Mitt endorsement bad news for Obama. It's' not fatal, but he needs all mo' he can get.—
Howard Fineman (@howardfineman) October 28, 2012

Calm down. Yes DMR more conservative now. but that's part of the story. Their 1st gop endorsement in 40 years. DMR still matters in Iowa.—
Howard Fineman (@howardfineman) October 28, 2012

Calm down? That is incomprehensible to the unhinged. So, guess what comes next? That’s right: Cue the conspiracy music. The Des Moines Register endorsed Romney because, Bain!!11111eleventy.

.@howardfineman DMR owned in part by Bain Capital. Journalistic malpractice on your part not to include that info.—

*@EricBoehlert @ritaag @howardfineman Seriously A Bain Owned newspaper endorsement=doom for the Obama campaign? #p2 #tcot

@howardfineman DMR owned by Gannett Corp. whose major investor is BAIN CAPITAL. Do your job HOWARD!!—
  (@joy123) October 28, 2012

@howardfineman You leave out that DMR has been partially owned by Bain Capital since 2009 … that compromises its endorsement.—

RT @JasonFebery: Is it any surprise that a newspaper owned by Bain Capital would endorse Bain Capital's former CEO? | @HowardFineman #Romney

a 2yr old cld hv known the connection between bain and dmr damn u r lazy as hell @howardfineman bain connected to alot of papers—
  (@lovelyladypa) October 28, 2012

@LJMoveOn @howardfineman Howard is an idiot. Bain is part owner of the Des Moines Register so it was expected they would endorse Mitt.—
Bonnie Hussein Obama (@BJHare) October 28, 2012

.@howardfineman A real reporter would connect the dots from the DMR to Bain. Punditry like yours has an expiration date over its head.—
Edwina (@NJedwina) October 28, 2012

Daily Kos: @howardfineman you are an #idiot dailykos.com/story/2012/10/… via @dailykos // DMR partially owned by BAIN! Duh. #p2 #ows #IOWA
V K (@craftyme25) October 28, 2012

No…@goldietaylor He missed the research on Bain Capital's connection to DMR @howardfineman
  (@McBlondeLand) October 28, 2012

And it’s not just a cuckoo pants response to Fineman. This seems to be an extremely desperate and sad straw. Grasp! Grasp like the wind!

Liberals are emailing me that Bain owns part of a holding company that owns the Des Moines Register.—
Byron Tau (@ByronTau) October 28, 2012

This is not a joke. The left is now saying the Des Moines Register endorsed Romney because Bain owns them. Also, Diebold made them do it.—
Mr Mercandetti (@DefendoLibertas) October 28, 2012

No, for reals!

Des Moines Register? Owned by Gannett, who have lucrative contract with the Weather Channel's WSI, which is part owned by …. Bain Capital.—

Des Moines Register is not a liberal paper. It's owned by a surrogate of Bain Capital. Calls em like we sees em. #doesitmatter?—
Mim Eichler Rivas (@madcubans) October 28, 2012

Bain Capital is owner of the Des Moines Register so who do you think they are going to endorse … Not BO.—
Xairo Miller (@xai007) October 28, 2012

@LatinRomney Not exactly. DMR's owned by Gannett, which has some sort of relationship with the Weather Channel, which is part-owned by Bain.—
Alec MacGillis (@AlecMacGillis) October 28, 2012

DMR is owned by Gannett who has a contract w/the Weather Channel's WSI who is owned in part by Bain Capital. Says it all.—
Tina (@Tinastweet) October 28, 2012

Oh, it says something, sweetie. About you.

DMR is owned by Bain bwahaha wow some endorsement. I'm still laughing.—
Janis (@janisgos) October 28, 2012

We are laughing, too. At you, not with you.

Leftys playing seven degrees of Kevin Bacon to say DMR owned by Bain Capital. #morons While idiotic, it is entertaining to watch.—
Dan Czech (@dpczech) October 28, 2012

The Des Moines Register is not owned by Bain Capital. Stop being ridiculous.—
Ben White (@morningmoneyben) October 28, 2012

Thank you. Amazing how fast that one took off. RT @morningmoneyben: Des Moines Register is not owned by Bain Capital. Stop being ridiculous.—
Alec MacGillis (@AlecMacGillis) October 28, 2012

The desperation, it scorches!

Sorry to burst your bubble, lefties. There is no conspiracy. President Obama did not receive the endorsement for one, simple reason: His presidency has been an utter failure.

We cannot afford four more years and even the Des Moines Register realized that. But, hey, keep bitterly clinging to your cuckoo pants conspiracies and such. It’s hilarious!

I guess the pinkos don’t know how to use Yahoo finance.

Take a look:

You don’t see Bain in the list of top 10 institutional holders, do you?

I’m going to enjoy watching MSNBC on election night. Their psychotic denial in 2010 was hilarious.

They haven’t endorsed a Republican presidential nominee since 1972. Three other major Iowa papers joined them in endorsing Romney today.

There was a time when the Register’s voice meant something. They covered Iowa and national news with reporters in D. C. and all over the state and Midwest. They were always Lib but always thorough.

A couple years back, they missed covering an Iowan winning the PGA.

They’ve laid off their best beat reporters and pulled back to Polk County (Des Moines) and the north half of Warren County (nowhere.)

Pity.

Great line.

I'll tell ya what. If USA Today and all of the Gannett papers in swing states endorse Romney, I'll pretend to buy into this silliness.

Instead of stressing about every poll, we should just enjoy the next 2 weeks. You are seeing the implosion of liberalism and the democratic party. Failure to recognize your errors and take responsibility will be the undoing of Obama and the democrats. Nothing, not even an endorsement by a newspaper, could possibly be their fault. No, there is some conspiracy. Everyone is against them. Those bad republicans in congress. George Bush, Bain, Diebold, whatever....

Don’t you love the smell of democratic desperation in the morning?
