I liked Kevin Drum's description of it:"This was a full-on freak show. No blog description can do it justice, I'm afraid. It was just two continuous hours of stupid prepackaged zingers, chuckleheaded ignorance, and reactionary one-upsmanship for the benefit of the adoring tea party audience. Even Jon Huntsman decided that full-bore idiocy was his only chance to make an impression. Mitt Romney tried gallantly to stay just barely on the right side of sanity, but it's not clear that it helped him any. The CNN pundits seemed much more impressed with Rick Perry's virile "presence.""
