Watch: Highlights from the Iowa GOP debate

Pin it

Highlight reels. Is there a more American way to synergize our love of entertainment and our puny attention spans? Sure, there was a two-and-a-half-hour basketball game, with dizzying highs, lows, and beautiful, mind-melding teamwork, but what I really want is four or five dunks in a row with Stuart Scott yelling nonsense in the background. 

In that same spirit of boiling down an interminable slog of content into bite-size information nuggets, I present a highlight reel of last night's first round of GOP debates in Iowa.

Post your favorite quotes in the comments. My favorite? Michele Bachmann: "I believe you can get money wrong, but you can't get life wrong."
