I will watch the midnight rerun. I'm too busy playing President Forever, going through each scenario between 1996-2012 that has the Constitution Party and trying to get at least 1% of the vote. Much more interesting then what Huckabee usually has on Wink

Rick closed by denying that SCOTUS is the final arbiter of the meaning of the Constitution (he wants to repeal Marbury v Madison somehow, someway, just like Newt), and wants to close down the 9th Circuit to boot. Just how anyone serious can support such reckless jokers sort of amazes me. It really does. If the Courts are not the final arbiter, the Constitution is essentially a dead letter. Does everyone understand that?  This is not a trivial issue.

No one except some libertarians and some paleocons actually care that much about the Constitution. That's not a complaint though.

Perry looks nervous. Also, where is everyone? Where are the 20 pages?

That... shocked me. And what does he have against the 9th Circuit?

Lack of live stream maybe? I found one online that's really awful.

I beg to differ, but whatever.

Here is a "thinkum" for folks. Do you really want Congress to "adjudicate" the reach of the 1st Amendment?  Do folks realize just how truncated free speech rights are outside the Fruited Plain?  Even Canada does stuff that causes me to shudder - jailing or fining folks for incorrect speech that the government deems "hateful" or whatever.

Bachmann was too stupid to deflect the comment that deporting 11 million illegals (which she supports), would cost 150 billion. You would think this rather calm but nevertheless calculatingly vicious women would have had the presence of mind in her world to comment that the bulk of those would leave of their own accord if cut off from jobs and government benefits (which of course she also supports). But she didn't.  Well, she's irrelevant anyway. Stupidity is a sin for a potential POTUS is the point, beyond what they actually think.

Bachmann is so terrified up there against three "real" lawyers, that she just projects listlissness, ennui, and an almost robotic quality (I thought of the Stepford Wives movie - I really did).

Paul came up with the big three of what government should be doing on the spot (borders, currency and enforcing the Bill of Rights), unlike poor Perry when it came to his little three agencies in his cross hairs. Paul is a quite composed chap. I guess that comes with a point of view, that renders the complex, all just so simple.

Paul doesn't know the amendments to the Constitution other than the Bills of Rights.  You would think that when asked to list what amendments to the Constitution were a mistake, he would have gone to the amendment on the income tax (the 16th?), like flies to sh**t. But then he is an MD, not a JD, so he won't go to hell over that flub.

But this is Ron Paul. His whole platform is about the constitution. If he doesn't know, this is a MAJOR gaffe.
