A LOT more people will be tuning in to the next debates, even those who are not generally interested, because everyone's heard of what Mitt did to The One, and people just love to be ringside at a train wreck.

80, 90, maybe even 100 million voters will be watching.

I can't wait.

PA libs with weak stomachs might want to avert their gaze; the humiliation is likely to be gruesome.

All Mitt has to do is repeat his performance. Zero has to show qualities that he has cleverly managed to conceal so far.

The bout we will get to enjoy brings this epic boxing match to mind:

http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/cassius-clay-defe...

"Liston was a reserved, feared fighter, a decade older than Cassius Clay, and had been world heavyweight champ since defeating Floyd Patterson in 1962. By contrast, Clay was a mouthy underdog who had won a gold medal in the light heavyweight division at the 1960 Olympics in Rome. While training for their fight, Clay, a natural self-promoter, taunted Liston and boasted to reporters that he would win by knockout. Clay came out strong during the fight, using speed and footwork to his advantage against the slower Liston. After the sixth round, Liston, who was suffering from cuts and bruises under his eyes and an apparent injured shoulder, announced he couldn’t continue. Clay won the match by technical knockout and then announced to the world, “I am the greatest!”

Clay, who later became known to the world as Muhammad Ali, went on to become the first fighter to capture the heavyweight title three times.
