    “I think they’re looking at Newt Gingrich surging.” Ack! That mental image is … ack! And then you had to go and use the words “Gingrich” and “surging” in the same sentence not once, but twice. Ack! Thbbft!!

    Rick Perry’s joke about tomcats is actually funny, or would have been if it hadn’t been accompanied by mugging that would have had silent-movie directors saying, “Okay, that was fine, good energy, but could you dial it back a few dozen notches? You’re going to frighten the children.” Ditto the line about graduating in the top ten of his high school class. His delivery is ‘way off, but the lines are funny. The Perry campaign insists he wasn’t drunk or stoned for his appearance, which leaves sudden-onset psychosis or stroke (Chez, one of us needs his gaydar recalibrated).

    The “Doer” ad was striking for the same reason: listen to the audio alone and it’s a bog-standard campaign ad. Watch, and Perry’s tics and twitches make him look like someone poured itching powder down his shirt (plus, the framing makes me wonder if a staffer was crouching out of frame, holding Perry’s hands at his sides so he wouldn’t wave them around). (And he may have been reading off cue cards, not a ‘prompter. Just sayin’.)

    “There is no difference between a teleprompter and a piece of paper sitting there on the podium.” (Should be lectern, not podium. [/picky_and_pedantic]) There’s a crucial if impossible-to-articulate difference, at least if you have an R after your name. (Logic? We don’t need no stinking logic!)

    Whenever I hear about the McRib, it reminds me of the ad for Krusty Burgers’ Ribwich on The Simpsons (quoting from memory): “We use genuine, USDA letter-grade meat.”

    Elizabeth Warren’s response to her heckler was brilliant:

    “I actually felt sorry for the guy. I really genuinely did,” Warren later told the Huffington Post. “He’s been out of work now for a year and a half. And bless his heart, I mean, he thought somehow it would help to come here and yell names.”

    She also added: “I’m not angry with him, but he didn’t come up with the idea that his biggest problem was Occupy Wall Street. There’s someone else pre-packaging that poison — and that’s who makes me angry.”

    As always, thanks for the show, guys.
