On the whole, all the candidates--with the possible exception of Gov. Perry getting tangled in the syntax of attacking the two Gov. Romneys or talking about "mating Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain"--even Rep. Paul, did very well. Newt Gingrich did particularly well; Rep. Bachmann also did very well, for the small amount of time she was able to speak. I herewith announce the formation of the Bachmann Equal Time Association. Anyone who cares to join BETA may consider his initiation the sending of an email to Fox News requesting that Michelle Bachmann receive the same amount of time as, say, Gary Johnson. For crying out loud, let her speak! She has been a very strong Republican voice over the past three-year disaster of the current administration, and we ought at least to let her say what she has travelled from Minnesota to Florida to say.
