Bloggers and political junkies are in heaven the morning after the Iowa cattle call. Here is a sample you might have missed if you don’t read the “comments.”
“Ricky (Perry) does debates like hogs do dancing…Don't let him quit.”
“Voters recognize Bachmann for what she is: a fringe politician trying to get limelight with divisive histrionics. More reminiscent of Ann Coulter than of any serious politician, really. People aren't dumb.”
“The question for Paul, though, is how he can capitalize on one good night in Iowa and turn it into more good nights in New Hampshire, South Carolina and beyond.” (Ed note: “good night” is good enough for me.)
“One of the great problems we have in the Republican Party is that we don’t encourage you to be nasty.” Newt Gingrich, 1978.
The three most corrupt Senate members are the infamous Conrad Burns (R-MT), Bill Frist (R-TN), and Rick Santorum (R-PA) -- The Center For Responsibility And Ethics In Washington released its second annual survey of the twenty most corrupt members of Congress.
“Santorum has benefited from his obscurity so far, but that's over.”
Note: nothing negative here about Mitt Romney. Surprisingly, his Republican opponents have yet laid a glove on him. Let the vetting begin.
