When Mitt Romney filibustered, during last night's debate, about the success of Massachusetts' public education during his term, the Prez attempted -- but failed -- to get a word in edgewise.

Waiting for last night's first debate between President Barack

Oh, Rick Santorum. We're so going to enjoy your all-too-brief sojourn as a serious presidential candidate.
RICK SANTORUM: I DIDN'T SAY BLACK PEOPLE, I SAID BLAH PEOPLE. Did Santorum really equate black folks with welfare recipients? No, no no no. You must have misunderstood. Rick Santorum would never do that. Certainly not in front of a bunch of cameras during a town hall full of white folks in Iowa, a state where less than 10 percent of welfare recipients are black.
