Say, doesn’t this remind people of another debate challenge? One in which one candidate bet another a bunch of money as an intimidation tactic? Remember when the man who offered the bet claimed a refusal was an admission of error? Good times, good times:

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney on Thursday spurned a challenge from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, his chief rival for the Republican presidential nomination, for a one-on-one debate in the run-up to the Jan. 3 Iowa caucuses, but he dismissed the notion, suggested by Mr. Gingrich, that he was afraid to participate in such a faceoff....

He’s not just RINO. He’s a weak RINO. This is supposed to be the inevitable nominee?

He relies on flame thrower Michelle to take care of the conservatives in the debate for him.

Let’s see..Mitt has a rear-end full of money to obliterate his opposition with. And even had a whaa-whaa melt down couple of weeks ago on some MSM news show. But tells Newt to man up.

Newt calls him out to a debate to defend his lies..and Mitt crawdads. Mitt is a coward.

Darn good thing we don’t live in the “olden” days when duels with pistols were the accepted means of settling an argument.

I’m guessing she’s running for IRS commissioner or HUD secretary. Even Milt isn’t dumb enough to make her his VP nominee.

I’m still hoping someone from Iowa dons a chicken suit and starts following Mitt around with a sign:

MAN UP Join Newt in the kitchen.

The Code Duello; and I think it is a shame it was outlawed.

“He relies on flame thrower Michelle to take care of the conservatives in the debate for him.”

Hers is the most self destructive trainwreck of a campaign that I can remember.
