Herman and Newt at The Woodlands

Saturday evening, while most of the nation watched the National Championship game Tide lose to LSU, Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich had a sit down debate north of Houston, Texas.

You can watch it here. You’ll learn loads about the issues facing the nation and likely will never watch another network sponsored cat-fight again.

Cap’n Ed liked it as well. I mean, who wouldn’t? (Libs need not reply.)

This could set a standard for debates in the future, but only if Republican voters demand to see the other candidates in similar forum models. I’d love to see Rick Santorum and Ron Paul debate foreign policy, for instance, or Mitt Romney and Rick Perry debate economic policy, for 90 minutes with no moderators and no media needling. That would produce real choices for voters, and strip away the gotcha strategies to find out which candidates have substance and which have really good tailors.

Now faithful readers here (and at PP) will remember that I’ve mocked and poked Newt with a stick more than once. I am an adult (despite what my children say) and able to take my nuggies with the best of them. Newt deserves another look.

Second Verse, Same As The First

Well, after a week of non-planned-mental-absence, nothing much has changed. While I gather what is left of my thoughts, amuse yourself with the following:

Eric Holder hasn’t quit, yet.

The Herman Cain smears have started, right on schedule.

Our beloved Gerard has pulled a Lazarus on us. Thankfully, according to insider reports, he is mending nicely and will be back to his fully-operational Death Star status soon.

“Every writer is unique, both in thievery… and in execution.”

24-20. Heh. Gators eat boogers.

An uncle explains redistribution of wealth to his nephew.

Disgraceful Lawrence O’Donnell – UPDATED

This interview of Herman Cain by MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell rockets past the offensive mark to the point of “WTH?” Listen to the entire thing there, I can’t embed it here. That free WordPress stuff, still.

Honestly, would O’Donnell have interviewed BHO the same way in 2008? No way; he was too busy licking O’s boots while sticking pins in Sarah Palin dolls, like the rest of the MSM.

If the media hates Cain this vehemently, then that’s a sure sign to the voters that he’d make a good President. At this point, my fifteen year old arthritic and half-blind Shih Tzu would make a better President than the current one (no offense meant to Herman, either, so don’t even go there.)

UPDATE: Here’s another shameful baiting of Herman by CNN’s Candy Crowley. He really has set the talking heads back on their heels!

UPDATE II: Both Stacy and Smitty weigh in on our betters. Ed Driscoll has a good round-up, including an ad for paid protesters for #OccupyWhatever. Yep. Paid protesters.
