GOP playoffs on TV -- again

Define joy: Two Republican debates in 10 hours.

Tonight’s reality show is brought to you by Dog Whistle, a subsidiary of Koch Bros. Sunday’s program is made available through generous donations from their SuperPac. Mill-yons and mill-yons, as Ralph Yarborough used to say.

Sadly, the TV debates will be two clowns short of full car now that Bachmann and Cain have retired. Unless they get a suck-up cameo. No, governor, that’s not what you wear to a duck hunt.

Bachmann got it slightly wrong in her “outta here” speech. She was trying to quote Dr. Suess. Here’s how the whole thing goes:

“I meant what I said and I said what I meant.

An elephant’s faithful one hundred percent.”

From Horton Hatches the Egg

Earlier, you’ll recall Cain quoted from Pokemon in his concession. That just about locks up the GOP erudite vote drive. Not counting what Newt says. Fundamentally.

Prior to leaving to New Hampshire, Rick Perry relaxed by blazing away with his pistol at an Austin gun range. That means his foot must have healed. You know. The foot he shot himself in. Should that read “hisself?” Or “his own self?”

Wonder if Obama will dare debate like that?

George -- spell out a scenario to me where Barack loses in November, will you? It's my great fear and I know it can happen probably in a # of ways...but what's your take?
