I was watching some excerpts from the Republican Presidential debate in Iowa tonight, and thinking it might be fun to write up another parody of the contenders. There is something hilarious, for example, about poor Newt Gingrich acting upset at so-called "gotcha" questions, from Chris Wallace of all people. Then I thought, what's the point? I did a parody already of the Republican candidates' New Hampshire debate. Anyway, these folks are beyond parody anyway. They do too good a job parodying themselves.
I decided it's more productive to watch this guy instead. He knows what he is talking about, and he makes a lot of sense. And for those who might be wondering how someone who ran in 2008 on a theme of bringing a new kind of politics to Washington, can make that theme work again in 2012, when he will be running as an incumbent: Just watch how he does it.
