Saturday night saw a genuinely strange spectacle in Houston. Herman Cain … took the stage with Newt Gingrich … for what was billed as a “Lincoln-Douglas” style debate.
Onstage Saturday, Gingrich seized the opportunity to show off his mastery of policy matters. He spoke with ease about the intricacies of health policy, saying the nation’s health system should be less bureaucratic and more consumer-friendly.
“Think about going to McDonald’s,” Gingrich said. “We have no national hearings on fraud at McDonald’s. You show up and say, ‘I’d like a Quarter Pounder with Cheese.’ You give them money. They are happy. You are happy. If you open up your bag and there’s no Quarter Pounder with Cheese, you are unhappy.”
Sarah PAC June 30, 2011*.
Some numbers from the PAC’s December 30, 2010 filing*:
Total Receipts: $5,685,213
Individual Contributions: $5,639,060
Total Disbursements: $4,356,458
Contributions To Other Committees: $509,000
Unless it changes its filing schedule to monthly, Sarah PAC will file again in December 2011. At which point we’ll get an idea of how many of the faithful fell for the Quitessential Governor’s Dance of the 700,000 Veils this summer.

During a commercial break, Perry walked up to Paul’s podium, physically grabbed Paul’s wrist, and pointed at Paul’s face with his other hand.
I’m not sure how much attention this will get as we are well into the now annual Ritual of Dead Gawking, AKA The anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. However, the bobbleheads eat up this sort of thing with a spoon and lick the plate after.
For now I’ll just note that Gov. Good Hair is such a huge dick that he can’t make it through a debate without turning into Gov. Grabby Hands.
