Perry really tanked in the debate. I've seen the painful clip.
I think Rick Perry should stay away from TV and Twitter today. They're writing him off. Even Drudge put up a headline: Debate Death. Ouch.
So where to go from here?
The media has piled on every front runner and weekly favorite as they ascend. I think the harassment allegations against Cain have backfired against them. It seems like Cain is gaining ground (and money) from that rather than losing support.
It looks to me like this week's ascendant candidate is Newt, so start watching for folks to dig up his skeletons. There are plenty of them.
By the time the media gets finished trashing and sabotaging our candidates (and they sabotage themselves), all we'll be left with is Romney.
