The debate last night on CNN plumbed the depths of lunacy – gone was all the “let’s build malls on the moon” talk but in it’s place was a whole lot of sex stuff. Which is great, everyone wants to hear Ron Paul and Ricky Santorum talk about sex. Everyone.
Anyway, the best postmortem I’ve seen comes from Roger Simon at Politico, this passage in particular is killer:
It was that kind of night. Everything had been said but not everybody had said it, and the 90-minute debate proved Einstein’s theory that time can actually slow down.
I would accuse the candidates of just going through the motions, but there was hardly any motion.
Scratch that. CNN began with my favorite part of these spectacles: The candidate perp walk. One by one, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Ron Paul paced wearily onto the stage. If their suits had not been uniformly funereal in color, they would have resembled prisoners on a chain gang.
