Over At Reason, Ron Paul Supporter Says Revelation That Ron Paul Is A Conspiracy Nut Is Itself Product Of A Massive Conspiracy | Main | Luntz' Focus Group: Fred Won
January 10, 2008

Debate Thread

On Fox at 9pm Eastern.

Chris Wallace will probably grill Ron Paul, a bit, about the newsletters, and though he'll be tougher than Wolf Blitzer was, he's also a debate moderator, not a newsguy doing a one-on-one interview. So the exchange will be short, Ron Paul will lie his ass off with gibberish, and Chris Wallace will have to move on.

And no other candidate is going to go after him that much, either. There's no point trying to convert his glassy-eyed minions, and, as one commenter said, the moment Ron Paul exits the campaign they'll climb that tower and start on that shooting spree they've meaning to get around to, and no one wants to be on their kill-lists.

Meanwhile this is Fred Thompson's last chance to leave an impression, and by "impression," I mean a big ragged bloody bruise on an opponent. This courtly Southerm gentleman stuff does not win elections. If he wants to win, he's going to have to lay into someone ahead of him-- especially his good friend John McCain. If he can't do that he can't be president, and he won't be.

I suggest he take a page from Hillary and begin the night with a rousing stream of racial slurs. He should welcome the audience as "my niggaz" and then call Chris Wallace "Slanty McZipperhead" and respond to all of his questions with "flied lice" jokes.

9:15: Ron Paul takes no time getting to claiming recession due to "easy credit" and money being "poured" into the system, says we have to go to the Austrian school of hard currency.

Well, Helllllloooo, Nurse!!!! Fred is laying into Huckabee. NIIIIIICE.

Big cheers.

Swiped from Hot Air.

Fred showing some fire... and playing a little to the cheap seats with the "introduce them to those virgins they've been looking forward to." Gets a rousing round of applause.

Who does this help?

The answer is clear: Mitt Romney.

I'm sorry, whoever is doing "Hugh Hewitt" in the comments is killing me.

But... Mitt Romney sounds pretty darn good too.

And who does that help?

The answer is clear: It helps everyone.

Update [Slublog] - Huckabee: Death is a good soundbite. "We had no bridges falling down in Arkansas"

Wow. This guy is shameless.
