The Losers' Debate, or Ten Little Idiots
Politico.com is reporting that there will be 10 Republican candidates at Thursday's G.O.P. Presidential Debate. I admit I could only come up with eight announced candidates off the top of my head. (According to wikipedia, there are actually 11 Republican hopelesses.) It's not as easy as it would seem.
The debate is being held at the Reagan Presidential Library, and I imagine all 10 debaters will claim to be the Second Coming of Ronnie. The real test: Which one will offer a rambling, cringe-inducing closing statement with no ending, in the true spirit of the Gipper. And which one will prep with an opponent's debate book, pilfered by George Will.
I'm really looking forward to this debate.
