#rsrh Meh. A debate.

I’m going to go against consensus here and give it to Romney by default: Ron Paul is irrelevant, Rick Santorum reverted to being whiny, and while Newt Gingrich had an excellent start to the night he’s going to have to come to terms with the fact at some point that, no, [most]* people don’t want Lincoln-Douglas debates anymore.  Sitting through three hours of this stuff would tax me, and I’m a motivated New Media partisan blogger.  Romney continues to benefit from his opponents not punching at him directly: which is maddening, of course, but somewhat distantly so, given that my favored candidate is currently waiting for the TX legislative season to start and wondering which candidate will end up calling him about the VP slot.

I do now think, however, that Mitt Romney will not win South Carolina.  Which means that this is going to go on for a while longer.

    My favorite candidate from 2008 is doing reverse mortgage commercials on late night tv. That’s when I stopped letting myself get invested early on in the primaries.

    And are we sure Newt is boring us? Because for a minute there at the beginning…. Oh well, never mind. Can’t say that. You’ll stop letting me post here.

    I want Lincoln-Douglas debates. :::softly::: Am I not a person?

    • Moe_Lane says:

      Of course you’re a person, Demosthenes. I have updated accordingly.

      Aruges: that assessment may need to be reassessed in the summer. Especially if Romney keeps grabbing Perry’s lines on federalism.

  • Aruges says:

    I’d like to think Perry would get the nod for VP, but I’m pretty sure he won’t. He brings nothing to the table as damaged goods. The VP will probably be one of the Governors who didn’t run.

    After last night, it’s no longer his liver with fava beans and a nice chianti, now it’s his still beating heart with a baked potato and and a bottle of Jack.

  • Jbird says:

    I bet McDonnell, VA’s Gov., is the VP pick. Especially if Romney wins. More interesting question, will Biden really be the VP choice again for Obama?

  • Bob Stovall says:

    Actually, Moe, Lincoln-Douglas debates would be vastly more interesting than the talking-head dominated format that we have endured for the last 40+ years. Maybe the candidates would actually mix it up a bit. I’d like to see’em duke it out, Verbally, of course.
