Can you use a humor break right now? Gawker did a hilarious liveblog of the TP debate on CNN.
I'll just provide a few snippets but go to Gawker to read the whole thing:
8:11 — They're briefly introducing themselves. "I'm Mitt Romney. I live in a monster-sized loafer atop Mount Voldemort." "I'm Rick Perry. I kilt a man." "I'm Herman Cain. I know literally nothing about politics." These are paraphrases.
8:13 — First question from a Jacksonville Tea Party member: How will you destroy Medicare and Social Security without losing an election in a great hellball of fury?
8:15 — Michele Bachmann: I will repeal everything, because I'm the great repealer!
8:37 — Tea Party lady from Virginia asks what they would do to help the economy. GREAT USE OF THE TEA PARTY HERE.
8:38 — Jon Huntsman has now mentioned both heroin and Kurt Cobain in this debate. He better mention Alice in Chains by the end of the night, to avoid the snub of the century.
8:59 — Rick Perry, who would double down on a claim that Nickelback is a good band if he had the opportunity, obviously doubles down on his claim that Ben Bernanke might be guilty of "treason."
Is the CNN/KKK debate next week?
