Ambush At The OK Corral

 
(written the day before the first Republican YouTube debate)
 

Act 1:

"Hi, Jim!  Did you watch the Republican YouTube debate last night?"

"No, darn it.  Bill was sick and I had to cover for him.  Why?  What happened?"

"And it gets even worse!  I have a clip right here that shows Fred Thompson actually attempting to deny he married a trophy wife!"

"No!"

"You bet!  Boy, the Republicans' hypocrisy was certainly on display last night!"
