Marshall Wittmann is an American pundit, author, and sometime political activist. On November 22, 2006, he was hired to be the communications director and spokesman for Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT). Wittmann is a former senior fellow at the Progressive Policy Institute, a think tank affiliated with the Democratic Leadership Council.

Wittmann served as the conservative Heritage Foundation's director of congressional relations, the Christian Coalition's director of legislative affairs, and as a senior fellow at the conservative Hudson Institute. In the first Bush Administration, he served as the deputy assistant secretary for the Department of Health and Human Services after founding "Jews for George." Wittmann also was the legislative representative with the National Association of Retired Federal Employees and a public affairs specialist with the National Treasury Employees Union. He holds both his bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Michigan.

In his blog, Bull Moose Blog, Wittmann refers to himself in third-person as "the Moose". For example he writes "The Moose has enjoyed the distinct pleasure of being labeled both a Republican squish and a Rovian Plant". Wittmann borrowed his nickname from Teddy Roosevelt, whom Wittmann admires.
