Eric Stratton, GOP Debate Coach
Much has been made of Mitt Romney's debate performance over the past 2 made-for-TV events. What we political junkies know is the secret of his new found success. Mitt hired Michelle Bachmann's former debate coach, and the results are obvious in the recent Florida polls. Apparently, debate coaches work.
Newt Gingrich, who has staked his candidacy on his legendary self-proclaimed debating prowess, will not go down without a fight, however. For Mitt, there will be "no more fun of any kind" now that Newt has found a debate coach of his own.
America, I bring you Eric Stratton, former Rush Chairman and newest role model for the 2012 Gingrich debating style. In the clip below, watch as Stratton (beginning from the 1 minute mark), weaves in a neat parry against claims of sexual impropriety while turning the focus squarely back to his establishment accusers, and ends with some gratuitous flag waving. Brilliant!
