Are you ready to rumble?

And then there were four.

Newt’s greatest strength has been his debate performances. Mitt is gonna be a tough sell in South Carolina, Ron Paul is there for comedy relief and if Rick Santorum was any stiffer they would put a condom on him.

What to watch for: How will Newt deal with questions about his ex-wife? He knows it’s coming. My guess is he’ll give a non-answer and scold the moderator for going there. His goal tonight is to knock out Santorum. If Newt is the only not-Romney left he wins (and we lose).

The fun (such as it is) will start at 5pm left coast time (8pm Atlantic) on CNN. The South Carolina primary is Saturday.

This is an open thread.

In the end there can be only one

    Fight! Fight! Fight!

    Legal Insurrection thinks it’s going to be pile on Newt night. I think it’s Newt against the prObama CNN pundits.

    Paultards are out in strength.

    Mitt got less applause than the others.

  4. myiq2xu says:

    Can you imagine Obama singing along with the National Anthem?

  5. myiq2xu says:

    “No, but I will.”

  6. 1539days says:

    Best answer Newt could give about that story.

    “No, but I will.”

    People love when Newt slams Journolistas.

    • 1539days says:

      Yeah, but I’m not sure that it was a non-answer. I suppose he could say yes or no, but people will thinki the answer is yes no matter what he say.

      Actually, he just said it was not true as well

      John King is getting the flamethrower tonight.

  7. myiq2xu says:

    Newt is kicking John King’s ass.

  8. myiq2xu says:

    Weak answer by Santorum.

    He should have said “No” and let it go.

  9. 1539days says:

    Santorum lost that round.

  10. myiq2xu says:

    Bonus points to Ron Paul

  11. 1539days says:

    myiq, I think I’m going to stop commenting. I seem to be parroting you.

  12. votermom says:

    I can’t watch – the kids have taken over the tv and are watching Idol auditions. 😀

  13. myiq2xu says:

    RP almost makes sense.

  14. 1539days says:

    Ron Paul doing better than Romney and Gingrich on the jobs quesiton

  15. myiq2xu says:

    Somebody give Santorum a Red Bull

  16. myiq2xu says:

    What’s up with Ron Paul’s right eyebrow?

  17. myiq2xu says:

    Santorum: ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  18. 1539days says:

    Woo-hoo! Romney is going to turn Obamacare into Romneycare!

  19. 1539days says:

    Newt brings it back to Obama and no jobs. Nice

  20. myiq2xu says:


    “Elect us, and your kids will be able to afford to move out.”

  21. 1539days says:

    Santorum got his Wheaties.

  22. myiq2xu says:

    I love the way Mitt looks at Santorum while Rick speaks.

    Like a teacher waiting for a smartass student to get finished so he can squash him.

  23. 1539days says:

    Santorum’s flop sweat is coming in nicely.

  24. WMCB says:

    Santorum always looks like a stick-up-his-ass pinch-faced scold to me, even when he’s being all nice and reasonable.

  25. 1539days says:


    Newt released his tax returns during the debate.

  26. 1539days says:

    Santorum says he’s not flamboyant. That’s code for “all my opponents are gay.”

  27. myiq2xu says:

    Stick a fork in Santorum

  28. 1539days says:

    Santorum bringing up the House bank scandal

    20 year old vendetta night!

  29. Karma says:

    Mittens has street cred…lol. 🙂

  30. 1539days says:

    Romney: Vote for me! Because you have to.

    Gingrich: Vote for me. You don’t know what I’m going to say next.

    Santorum: Vote for me. I’ll attack my enemies the way I go after gays.

    Paul: If you don’t vote for me, I’ll run third party anyway.

  31. Karma says:

    Ruh roh…Newt takes credit for Mittens success…

  32. myiq2xu says:

    Mitt just stepped in it.

  33. 1539days says:

    Mitt is getting caught up in this tax thing.

  34. WMCB says:

    I actually agree with Santorum on this. We need JOBS worse than anything else. I say offer a sweet or even zero tax deal to manufacturers and big employers who stay here and hire here.

  35. Three Wickets says:

    Man, Romney is really lame on this tax thing. Sounds slimy. Makes for a big target in the general, along with the Cayman thing, the Bain thing.

  36. 1539days says:

    Santorum says the internet can’t just have anything on it.. That’s code for “all my opponents want gay internet porn.”

  37. 1539days says:

    Santorum’s whispering thing was pretty cheezy.

  38. 1539days says:

    Ron Paul is apparently in high demand. God, I hope he doesn’t run third party.
