This farce has gone on too long. The sophomoric Republican debates have gone from bad to worse and last night's "Cock Fight" debate simply catapulted the candidates even further down in the credibility and respectability department. This is about electing a leader, not about the size of anyone's manhood. Stick to talking about politics, policies and your stance on national and international issues.

We do things a little differently up here.
My comments on Donald have nothing to do with his political aspirations. It has to do with the damage that a personality like Donald's brings to the workplace. Bullies don't go away. Donald Trump's attack on Rosie O'Donnell last night came out of the blue. There was no reason for him to say what he said, yet he did.
Florida is for real -- involving two time zones and strong pockets of national security conservatives, social conservatives and fiscal conservatives. Perhaps the biggest change since South Carolina is the sudden fear -- and "fear" is not too strong a word -- among Republicans that Gingrich might seal the nomination.
It's often difficult to figure out who wins a political debate. And so it is with the seemingly endless road-show debates by the four contenders to be the Republican choice for president next November. If Romney didn't gain lustre on Monday, Gingrich certainly lost some -- even though he now leads Romney in Florida polls by an average of seven per cent.
