Live from South Carolina, it’s Saturday Night!
Yes, there’s another Republican debate tonight at 8 EST on CBS. I know, you’re thrilled to0 because it’s been an eternity since the last one — four whole days. Imagine all the twists and turns in Mitt Romney’s policy since then.
We all remember three exciting moments from the last one. One, Newtie was grumpy about being asked to fix health care in a minute, when the man has devoted three decades of his life (when he wasn’t having illicit sex or shopping at Tiffany’s) to health care. Two, the audience booed when Herman Cain was asked if he had maybe, perhaps, a slight “character” problem. And, three, um, oh, three, some guy from Texas…, three, oh, um. Sorry. Oops.
This one is focused on foreign policy. For Herman Cain, that includes women’s rights.
If Rick Perry stumbled during a debate on the economy, I don’t expect him to come roaring back in one on foreign affairs, although I’m sure he knows more than Cain. Grade-school children know more than Cain.
Ron Paul will be playing left field. Or perhaps will be outside the ball park completely.
Michele Bachmann will say some really scary, but false, things she read on World Net Daily. Unlike Sarah Palin, Michele does read, it’s just that she reads only crazy things that confirm her imaginary world view.
Newtie will be so annoyed that he has only a minute to answer that he will waste thirty seconds complaining.
Rick Santorum will tell us that faith and family are the answer to all foreign policy questions. More Christians, fewer Muslims!
Jon Huntsman actually knows this stuff, but he’s to the left of Obama on Afghanistan, so he won’t move his poll numbers tonight. The people who agree with him are already dancing with Ron Paul.
Mitt’s op-ed on Iran was so awful that I’m giving him his own post, up in a few minutes.
