The Circus Came To Town

Let's get ready to rumble!
Foxed hosted the first of what will surely be a series of circus events ( they are called debates but whether it's really a debate is debatable ) that will provide ample fodder for pundits & comedians. This is a who's who of Republicans seeking the presidency and stranger yet on the campus of Iowa State University, a bunch of cheering students.
I don't know what the criteria for candidates are but some of these people are polling at about 1% or less. A fine group of... well the terms disingenuous posers, crazy and histrionic neocons comes to mind.
The rhetoric is as well rehearsed as any stand-up routine. The mods ask a question and sometimes the candidates actually answer that question.
Common words and phrases - cutting taxes, ObamaCare, opposed raising the debt ceiling, cut cap & balance, reform SS, Medicaid, Medicare...

The players...

Mitt Romney (disingenuous poser)

Michele Bachmann (batshit crazy)

Herman Cain (pro business book tour)

Ron Paul (the wacky Libertarian)

Tim Pawlenty (kinda weak )

Newt Gingrich (the only Speaker of the House to have been disciplined for ethics violations)

Rick Santorum (twisted religious freak)

Jon Huntsman ( also kinda weak and a butt kisser)

**********
UPDATE


Tim Pawlenty drops out after Iowa straw poll.
Some think he may have conceded too soon.... Nah..
