• GOP Debate Vs “A Fish Called Wanda: Not Apples and Oranges

    So I’m streaming the debate on my laptop last night, one ear listening through a headset, while watching a great old movie with my better half, (in a loving10 year relationship between a woman who despises anything political, and a man that lives and breathes it every day, this is called, “compromise”). “A Fish Called Wanda,” with John Cleese and Jamie Lee Curtis was on, and is always worth watching. A group of personable miscreants scheming, seemingly together, for the same goal, while planning to screw all the other participants any way possible to attain that goal themselves…but enough about the debate, back to the movie. (Bah-da-bum)

    Perry made a fool of himself. It was embarrassing to watch him try to stay on the script he obviously had been studying. He seemed stiff and stilted, like reading lines that don’t fit in his mouth. He may believe every word, I just don’t feel it from him.

    Cain never faltered in his defense of 9-9-9, but he should have had a few simple answers to go with his admonitions, (which the others certainly deserved for their misrepresentations), other than to tell people to go look it up. A quick explanation of how he avoids the step-by-step taxation on materials in production, would have helped.

    Cain still stands head and shoulders above them all.

    Romney needs to admit he took a damn line out of his book, and put it behind him. He screwed up. I don’t think his hair will let him admit to not being perfect. His verbal contortions belie his smoothness.

    Santorum seems a solid guy, a guy you can count on, and be proud to call friend. His heartfelt message of family leaves a palpable feeling in the room. I don’t know why, but just doesn’t seem to have the depth of a President to me.

    Ron Paul said some perfectly correct things.

    Was Huntsman there? Why is it possible to ask that same question after each debate?

    Professor Gingrich came out looking the best, over all, IMHO. His policy and historical knowledge can’t be denied, but his couch-sitting Climate-Change commercial with San Fran Nan left a deeply disturbing image I’ve yet to mentally purge successfully. He has work to do, but not an impossibility.

    Bachmann didn’t claim any more worldwide deadly natural disasters were warnings from God, and this time didn’t call for Cains 9-9-9 to be condemned because it might be turned upside down bringing out the devil in the details, so I guess she did ok.

    Cain is the winner, mainly because the “professional prostitutes” can’t destroy him for offering solutions, something they stopped doing years ago.
