So I was watched a bit of the John Birch Society sponsored Republican Debate in South Carolina. The competition to earn approval from the 27% fringe that controls the party’s base was really something to see. This word seemed to best describe it:
The event was live blogged here and here and over here (last link added on a tip from beergoggles–thanks for that). Word is that Herman Cain was the winner.
How long can Cain hold the lead? Especially when the star-powered nut jobs enter the race. Just imagine how they will turn the volume up to 11 during the rest of
the campaign the race to the bottom. There is so far to fall and so much damage to do on their way down.
How does anybody pretend that any of these people are credible about anything?
And with that let’s have an Open Thread.
