Cain Gingrich Debate

November 6, 2011 by staff 

Cain Gingrich Debate, When your great-grandchildren have the American History 101 microchips implanted in their forebrains they will learn about the event we witnessed last night: historic importance upon historic importance, as a scandal-plagued former fast-food executive and a formerly-scandal-plagued former Speaker of the House massaged each other’s egos at a Tea Party fundraiser, just like Abraham Lincoln and Stephen A. Douglas. (“:

In case you “had plans on a Saturday night” or “have friends” or whatever, here’s what you missed.

* Iowa Rep. Steve King kicked things off with a slideshow about deficit spending, unenlivened by zingy graphics. (As everyone on the internet knows, the secret to a great slideshow is Kardashians, cute animals and/or foods that will kill you.) I fell asleep for a minute. When I woke up, Steve King was still talking. I ran over to the deli to get some coffee. Finally Steve King stopped talking (temporarily).

* The first order of discussion: How great is Paul Ryan? No for real, how great is Paul Ryan? The greatest? The greatly-greatest? The greatliest greatest great in the entire Reaganverse?

* It occurred to me that if the Ryan budget had passed the Senate last spring we probably wouldn’t be having this debate. If only they’d known.

* Newt repeated his line about “$70 to $120 billion in Medicaid and Medicare is paid to crooks.” This is partially true! It would be a lot more true if he said that “about $70 billion in Medicaid and Medicare is considered improper payments, ie routine administrative errors, overpayments and fraud,” but that is less of an adrenaline rush.
