A Quick Thought on the Republican Debates

I didn't watch the debate last night. Truth be told, I haven't watched any of them since January third. Why? Because I've already voted (uhm, IOWA, remember), so it's not like any of this will influence my decision.

I am interested in the whole campaign strategy where Newt seems to think that Romney's past work for Bain Capital is newsworthy. Here's how I immediately respond to charges that Mitt Romney made "too much money" working for Bain Capital:

Mitt made millions working for Bain Capital. Bain Capital is still a going concern, making money for all its employees and business associates.

Newt made approximately $1.5 million consulting for Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac. Fannie & Freddie are giant, smoking holes in the ground that the Federal Government is still shoveling cash into to keep the fires burning.

Remind me again: Which candidate benefits from reminding Republicans about their prior work experience? This is like Jim Kelly criticizing Tom Brady for the fact that all his Super Bowl CHAMPIONSHIP rings look "too tacky".

(My vote in the caucus? Perry. That 'tard had a conservative record as governor of Texas, but after his "clown show" of going after Romney from the left on this issue I'm sort of hoping that he finds a Gila Monster in his urinal, IYKWIMAITTYD.)
