    "sitting on the couch and eating cheez whiz" will gain 12 points over "actually voting" for uncommitteds. We saw Rmoney run away from everything his base gets fired up by.

    I can see a media bump because they need a close race to get butts in seats and eyes on ads. But the same news cycle crowing about Rmoney's "win" is going to be running alongside "Pants on Fire" fact-checking and "ZOMG, he wants to kill Big Bird!"

    It was a short-term lash-out that would have come from somewhere anyway, but it's not a game-changer. For people who like that sort of thing, Rmoney came out aggressive, but for everyone who's ever been talked over by an obnoxious guy at a party, or an obnoxious boss or customer...that's what they see.
