31. Any time a lot of cash is slapped down

on the barrel, it has the potential to change the game. Whether money can lift Rubio out of his own very significant limitations remains to be seen.

Possibly -- this close to the NH primary voting -- a lot of likely GOP primary voters in that state were undecided even up to the debate last evening. After watching/listening to the Christie-Rubio exchange, I'm wondering if they might conclude that:

1) Christie is right in his criticism of Rubio but Christie nevertheless is an asshole; and
2) Rubio looks and sounds untested and vacuous.

That combination may mean Trump may win NH after all. But who places second now? Maybe Rubio survives this debate, but my god, even Republicans aren't that stupid, are they? Ok, the are.

So it is a couple days from the vote in NH. The outcome has the feel of a food fight rather than an election. And when I think of food fights, I think of a grade school setting. Which might be too mature an allegory for the current crop of Republican hopefuls.
