Debating the Roosters

DEBATING THE ROOSTERS….Of the many things I hold against conservatives, one of the less cosmically important is that so many of them seem to belong to the annoying eager-beaver wake-up-at-the-crack-of-dawn club. (Ronald Reagan was an honorable exception.) Today, in an apparent attempt to confirm my stereotype and mock my slothful ways all at the same time, the Republican candidates held an 8 am debate. Seriously. 8 am. In Iowa. On Sunday. I’ll bet the media pool loved them for that.

Did anybody watch?

UPDATE: Oh jeez, the Democrats are going to do this too on August 19th? My stereotypes are shattered.
