9:27 Cain and Gingrich ask each other questions, "Newt, how are you so awesome?"

9:25 Awww...Shucky-Ducky, cornbread... #Hennyshot

9:21 Newt calls Obama a food-stamp president. Again.

9:10 Has any national politician, in the post-Civil Rights era, played the race card more than Herman Cain?

9:00 Again with the Chileans...

8:55 Gingrich compares Obama to Bernie Madoff...#donttalkaboutmymomsyo

8:45 Herman Cain--"You first have to turn the tax code into a 9-9-9 plan." Good line. Was funny. But isn't it 9-0-9, now?

8:41 Herman Cain on social security--"I'm a firm believer in 'Let's solve the problem'" Because everyone else is a firm believer in "I like the problem just fine."

8:35 "They call you a racist just like they call me a racist" Who is calling Cain a racist?

8:34 This is not a debate. It's a press conference--like Hulk Hogan and Andre The Giant talking to Mean Gene Olsen. I was really hoping for Piper's Pit.

8:23 I'm always amazed at politicians railing at Washington, in hopes of getting to Washington.

8:17 Wow. "My first executive decision to suspend the clock." My God, Newt is going to go nuts with that.

8:14 Just gonna state the obvious. The differences between Lincoln and Douglass were actual. Slavery was a real thing. They were from two different parties. They were in an actual election. This is--like so much in the modern GOP--about veneer, the sheen of Lincoln and Douglass. None of the seriousness.

8:12 Let's go...
