We won't really know until after Iowa, but it's possible
A third candidate stepped into the ring for the Republican nomination for Senate in South Carolina today.
For a picture of how low the level of public discourse has sunk in America, look no further than the New York Times.
When Newt Gingrich called CNN anchor John King's decision "despicable" to begin last Thursday's GOP debate with a question about Gingrich's second wife, the Charleston audience responded with a standing ovation. Surely, I thought to myself, South Carolina Republicans are not going to vote for a candidate just because he is good at dressing down the media.
