Via Mediaite, here’s the video highlight of the evening. T-Paw did end up dropping the gloves but Bachmann was ready for him. I don’t think he did enough damage to vault past her in the straw poll. In fact, increasingly I think Ron Paul’s going to win the straw poll on the strength of his small but perpetually energized constituency. I’m looking forward to Sunday’s headlines per his disquisition tonight about Iranian nukes being no big deal (a position he’s held for years): “Republican straw poll winner to the left of Obama on nuclear terrorism.”
If you’re keeping score at home, the number of questions asked tonight about Michele Bachmann being submissive to her husband: One. The number asked about entitlements and how to reform them: Zero. Unbelievable.
