Seven of the approximately 40,000 Republican hopefuls for the GOP Presidential candidacy lined-up in Las Vegas to take questions from the audience and moderator Anderson Cooper. Several key points were revealed in the course of the evening.
1: Herman Cain and Rick Perry are brothers. While we see no family resemblance Perry made this point twice.
2: Michele Bachmann is a member of the Russian Navy. She proudly wore her uniform to the Nevada event.
3: Rick Perry and Mitt Romney really, really hate each other. A lot.
4: No one cares at all what Rick Santorum has to say.
5: Newt Gingrich thinks he’s on a book tour.
6: Ron Paul knows how to get applause. Say you think war stinks and so does having to pay taxes. Say it over and over and over, as is you really have nothing else to say. Except you hate the Federal Reserve Bank almost as much as Rick Perry and Mitt Romney hate each other.
7: Herman Cain does well under pressure even if he does have absolutely no clue what he’s talking about. Probably comes from working the counter at the pizza joint on Friday nights.
