Of course, the power of JFK’s image vs. Richard Nixon. In my mind, the greatest debate moment came in 1988, when Lloyd Bensten slayed Dan Quayle in the VP standoff. Here it is … Yet my new all-time winner took place last night, when—with a few words–Rick Perry officially threw up the white flag, becoming 2011′s Fred Thompson (all hype, no reality) For those who missed it …

Bill Clinton Shows Up at NBA Labor Talks

Not really sure Bill Clinton is the right guy to help out unless you are looking to cheat on your wife.  He walked up to Fisher and offered him a copy of Clinton's new book, entitled "Back to Work."  Seems appropriate.

Mike Tyson as Herman Cain

I'm allergic to political speak.  They're all corrupt goofballs in their own ways.  I don't like being told what I want to hear just so I'll like you.  But, I'm all about political spoofs.  Will Ferrell's Dubya is classic.  Frank Caliendo's Bill Clinton is outstanding.  Mike Tyson's Herman Cain has some work to do, but it's great to see Iron...
