Per a Wall Street Journal live blog of the latest GOP debate, it sounds like Tricky Ricky:
1. Was ignored by Romney as much as possible;
2. Whiffed on even a couple of softball questions.
On No. 2, I mean, calling Romney a perennial candidate when you've been Texas gov since 1999? You're lucky Mitt was choosing to ignore you so as not to give you air time.
I'll offer 50-50 odds he gets to full Phil Gramm meltdown by New Hampshire primary times.
Who does that leave against the Mittster? The Pizza Man, Mr. Token? He's no more serious a candidate than Bachmann. Huntsman? Still not a chance. Paul? Besides still being a wingnut of wingnuts under his suaver exterior, the pro-war wing of the GOP hates him.
Everybody else is even more of a bottom feeder.
