Sioux City Iowa Final GOP Debate Tweet-By-Tweet

Good call ... an Iowa flag at Mitt Romney. Image Credit: mittromneycentral.com

By: Edmund Jenks – West Coast Editor

The gloves will be thrown on the ice in tonight’s debate from Sioux City. The debate should be “Zany” and wholly “Madcap”! Good god, what in the hell is Romney thinking and who uses language like this as an ad hominem attack, let alone in a “today” conversation. Leave It To Beaver (original series) hasn’t been on the air  in nearly 50 years!

We follow the reactions via 140 characters or less via Twitter in a  process entitled Tweet-By-Tweet:
