Marco Rubio's Rick Perry moment.

By Jack Brummet, GOP/Tea Party Ed.

Rubio had his long overdue Rick Perry moment tonight when Christie had him on the ropes and he repeated the same thing--nearly verbatim--four times.  His aides made him memorize six short index cards, and when the time came he could only remember the Obama one. 

He'll drop in the polls overnight and the contributors will stop answering the phones as of now.

Photos: Old friends, Bill and Donald Trump; Donald Trump with Hillary Rodham Clinton

It looks like Donald Trump just may target Hillary/Bill for WJC's highly suspect in my booklet, race-baiting comments in the 2008 primaries. After Obama's win, Clinton mentioned that Jesse Jackson won South Carolina's primary in 1984 and 1988 - victories that went nowhere. The remarks angered many black voters and officials in ‪#‎SC‬ who viewed it as an attempt to weaken Obama, who was, by then, Hillary Clinton's only real rival. -

Lindsay Graham drops out of Presidential contest - a voice of sanity silenced

By Jack Brummet, Tea-Party/GOP Ed.

It does matter that Senator Graham is dropping out. At times, as hard as it is to believe, Sen. Graham was actually a voice of sanity in the GOP-Tea Party.

As Rachel Maddow pointed out earlier today, 

"Keep in mind, Senate Republicans have, by and large, stayed on the sidelines in the GOP presidential race. Of the 54 Republican senators in the chamber, only 11 have made endorsements (one, John McCain, backed Graham, which actually brings the overall total down to 10 as of this morning). "The chatter on Capitol Hill has been that much of the conference has held back largely out of deference towards Graham, whom they’ve worked alongside for many years. The thinking has been simple: once Graham quits, senators can start intervening in earnest, without fear of hurting their friend’s feelings."

Ben Carson and Jesus

By Jack Brummet, Republican-Tea Party Ed.

Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson's house is an homage to Ben Carson. The amount of memorabilia is like a museum. Most famously now, there is a painting of the Doctor with a large-handed Jesus. Thanks to reader Dean for the "news" tip.

Ex-Governor Mike Huckabee and Governor Chris Christie relegated to the kid's table; Pataki and Gilmore, out

By Jack Brummet, 2016 primary and caucus ed.

Ex-Governor Mike Huckabee and Governor Chris Christie didn't poll well enough to stay on the main stage and are now relegated to the kid's table at the 4th Republican debate next Tuesday. They both failed to come up with the 2.5% share in the polls. 

On November 10th, Huck and The Governor will be standing with Gov. Bobby Jindal. and Sen. Lindsey Graham.  Ex-Gov. George Pataki and Jim Gilmore didn't even pull enough points this time to be at the kid's table.

Jack's Tweets from the GOP 10/28/2015 GOP debate

By Jack Brummet, GOP-Tea Party Ed.

I always try to live tweet the whole thing, and then reality, a.k.a.,  the actual debate sets in. But this wasn't a bad debate.  I think it will "move the needle" a little.  No one actually had a Rick Perry moment or anything, but Jeb Bush was pathetic (and next to the least screen/talk time). 538 seems to think it's just about the end of the line for the Bush fiasco.  Me too.

  1. The most memorable & creepiest image lingering from the is the thought of being on the receiving end of a warm kiss.
  2. "Do you want me to answer, or do you want to answer? . . .that would be rude even in New Jersey."
  3. Trump: "I don't know, you guys write this stuff."
  4. Ben Carson just got the audience to boo a panelist. That was pretty sweet. Strange inquisition.
  5.   Retweeted
    Cruz: Questions are designed to get candidates to rip into each other. he's right. Moderators losing control.
  6. Ted Cruz actually just made sense.
  7. In the last few minutes, four candidates have talked about what nice people they are.@
  8. Jeb is largely silent. It's almost time to wheel in the crash cart. When he does pipe up, it's about Rubio's day job.
