And to think he was Goliath a few short weeks ago. Last night Mittens acquitted himself fairly well, landing some blows and semi skillfully avoiding the occasional counterpunch. Cheek peck instead of french kiss for the tea party might actually spell “electability”.     “Governor Perry doesn’t believe that he created those things. If he tried to say that, well, it would be like Al Gore saying he invented the Internet.”

Krazy Eyez Killa was the biggest loser of the night, transitioning effortlessly into the dreaded second tier. One-word quote, but it’s a word no one else is likely to say at a presidential debate again…”Caliphate

The Doughy Marshmallow belongs back in the nineties with Gordon Gecko, whose comeback attempt got panned as well. He managed to be in favor of immigration reform even if  “We ought to outsource it, frankly, to American Express, Visa and MasterCard, so there’s no counterfeiting, which there will be with the federal government.”

Godfather Pizza Guy….face it bro, they’re just keeping you on stage so it won’t look like that lily-white country club that would not let a brother join. They wouldn’t have let you into Chile either. “Nine, nine, nine“. Are you sure it wasn’t nine ninety-nine with a supersize drink?

Sanctimonious Rooster…are you really going to let the moderator call you out as a Catholic when you’re sharing the stage with a couple of cultoids? Such a pathetic performance that I could not find a quote.

Ronpaulstiltskin…you have the cred, a cannon full o’ mud pointed at Rick, and totally own the “republican stoner” demographic. And there you are, channeling William Jennings Bryan (even if his cross was gold) with “a silver dime” for a gallon of gas.

John Huntsman….I like you, honestly, I do. And it’s not because I’ve been mistaken in the past for a key member of your campaign. You’re a decent guy, making some good points with true crossover appeal… September 2011, this is not your GOP.
