Just Another GOP Debate
- Newt Gingrich can’t wait to become president so he can revisit the early 60s and overthrow Castro in Cuba. War, baby, war.
- Santorum, who sees a jihadist around every corner, somehow linked Cuba with Islamic terrorism. Of course, everyone knows about bin Castro. Expect a war with Cuba right after Santorum gets done bombing the hell out of Iran. War is hell but someone has to do it.
- Gingrich defended his role as historian to Washington lobbyists. Exact quote went something like this, “Influence peddler, moi? Never.” …or something close to that.
- Gingrich, wearing his revisionist historian cap once more, says he was not in any way booted out of the Speaker’s job in 1998. Instead, Mr. Historian informs, he voluntary left Congress ’cause that’s the kind of decent guy he is.
Gingrich characterized the end of his Congressional career after the 1998 midterms as wholly volitional, making his exit sound like a self-sacrificing blaze of glory rather than the acrimonious firestorm it was.
With Gingrich, the distance between reality and rhetoric isn’t shrinking but growing, and the incongruities mount.
As for Mitt Romney, well, he’s offered a plan which has illegal immigrants “self-deporting” themselves back to their country of origin saving the government the trouble and expense of rounding them up and loading them on cattle cars. The man is a genius. He also lays it on the President again for playing “90 rounds of golf” while the country burned away. And those 2 million plus private sector jobs you thought were created in the last two years…never happened. We know this because Romney says so. The man claims that no new job was created under Obama. Not one. He heard it on Fox so you know he’s right.
Missing from this debate was the wild applause from the audience. They were asked before the start to refrain from clapping which led to a more subdued debate and prevented the GOP from suffering the humiliation of having the idiot part of their base booing gay servicemen and applauding the death of an uninsured American, as they have in the past.
And that was it. Crazy Ron Paul came off as the sanest of the lot. Surprise.
