CONCORD, N.H. – The first GOP debate of the new year was full of fireworks, particularly when candidates pulled no punches when going after Republican favorite Mitt Romney.
Newt Gingrich delivered a one two punch to Romney. “The ads you’re running, and the lies you spread – you’re a doody face and your hair is stupid!” Rick Santorum and Ron Paul also joined in, chanting “nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah!” Ron Paul then gave Romney a “raspberry”. Moderator David Gregory tried to control the unruly candidates, but was pelted by pieces of paper blown through a straw by Jon Huntsman.
Rick Perry sat in a corner having a “temper tantrum” until he was given a chance to respond, then repeated “boobies” to a bewildered Gregory. “I haven’t seen this kind of behavior since, well, the last GOP debate,” he later admitted.
Mitt Romney put up a good fight, though, exclaiming that he was “smarterer than all of them put together”. He then stuck out his tongue. Rick Santorum responded by calling Romney a “wordy durd” and a “gaywad Palestinian”, but then showed a surprising level of maturity by correcting himself, saying “every person in America, gay or straight, should be treated with respect. I would still love my son if he was gay. I just wouldn’t want to be seen with him!”
The audience for the Meet The Press debate was aghast by the childish display, then remembered that they were watching a GOP debate. “Oh yeah,” said one attendee,” I almost forgot what I was watching!”
