11:00 – And that is that. There was some blood, but not nearly enough for my taste. Still plenty of time for that, though. And, hopefully next time, we'll get to see Rick Perry swinging around his big Texas sized beat-down stick with the others. Time for me to wash my brain out with some vodka. have a nice night.
Let us know who you thought came in second place (I mean, after Rick Santorum, obviously) in the comments.
10:59 – It's a lot of fun watching people like Jon Huntsman talk about what they're gonna do when they're president. It's like when my 5-year-old niece talks about when she's gonna be a pony.
10:54 – If there's one thing that Michele Bachmann wants everybody to know before the debate is over, it's that she has no idea how the debt ceiling works.
10:50 – Wow. All these people are actually going to let Mitt Romney sleepwalk his way through this entire debate without jumping into the mud pit with them?
10:45 – Is the idea of closing the Fed really in the mainstream now? Because Newt Gingrich talks about it? Is the idea of Newt Gingrich really in the mainstream now?
10:42 – Damn straight, Jon Huntsman! We've got to end the EPA's "reign of terror." I want to see a return of black lung within my lifetime! That's the American dream!
10:40 – Concerning Mitt Romney's job record in Massachusetts.
10:37 – What are the odds that they'll ask Santorum about the abortion he sanctioned for his wife? Is there a number lower than zero?
10:36 – Michele Bachmann paraphrased: "I have a perfect record of hating gay people, thank you very much."
10:35 – Gay marriage questions? This is where Rick Santorum is a viking!

* All this press that Michele Bachmann's been receiving must really be getting to Sarah Palin, because she has now quit quitting her national non-campaign bus tour.
* Apparently, Palin's bus is being sucked in by the gravitation pull of all the TV cameras descending upon Iowa.
* "Can Ron Paul win it all in Iowa?" Short answer: No. Long answer: Nooooooooooooo.
* American Bar Association wants stricter rules for lobbying. Time to have Congress shut these guys down, huh?
