It was the Dampa in Tampa last night as the GOP presidential candidates convened for the first of two Florida bakeoffs this week.
And it was weak.
• If you picked “resigned in disgrace” for your drinking game, you were knee-walking by 9:15.
• Otherwise you were just-walking by 9:33 after Mitt Romney was done influence-paddling Newt Gingrich. The rest was simply marking time.
In other developments:
• Romney on his tax returns: It’s not me, it’s you.
• Overall, the debate was like driving the Pennsylvania Turnpike: Spasms of interest connected by long stretches of boredom.
• Drudge Insta-poll:
• Nuf Ced.
