Are GOP candidates the best and brightest?

The Saturday GOP debates drove me to early whiskey on Sunday.

Had a hangover anyway. Not from whiskey. Rather, from the knowledge that Newt Gingrich was the smartest guy on the stage. And the most glib. Biggest liar, too. If this is the best the Republicans can do …

Mitt Romney has some smarts, but no spine.

And poor Rick Perry. A blogger summed him up this way: “I've come to realize that watching him is a lot like puppy training my dog. You can see on his face that he wants to make you happy so badly but he just doesn't know what to do.”

The rest are merely ciphers.

Comedian Andy Borowitz said it best: “Other countries care for their mentally ill. Making them debate on TV is just cruel.”

Damn. I just realized the liquor stores are closed on Sunday in Texas.

The Perry quote is fabulous. And pretty accurate. LOL

damn, george, you're more of a masochist than I am. these people -- if that they be -- drive me nuts. I pay attention to the first layer of dust, but I do NOT jump into the mud, for crissakes. actually WATCHING newt gingrich? I'd rather watch lawrence welk reruns. if the republican asshats drive you toward saturday-night drunkhood, I'd suggest my personal remedy: eat a saturday-noon pot cookie, and then zip up to the front-range mountains and talk to the goats. love to the mystery woman. abrazos, d

I have heard that if you stand close to Rick Perry, you can hear the sounds of the ocean coming from his ears.

If Newt Gingrich is the smartest guy in the room, it's time to find another room.
