Tonight’s debate will have some surprises. But you can bet there are certain stock phrases you’ll hear over and over again. If you took a drink every time you heard one of these you’d be blotto after an hour:

“I would consult with my advisors.” (The over/under for Herman Cain on this phrase is six.)

“I believe what Ronald Reagan said that. . . .”

“American exceptionalism”

“Obama apologizing”

“Obama kicked [fill in name of favorite democratic ally] under the bus”

“Peace through strength”

“Defund the U.N.”

“Military option must be on the table”

“As an historian. . . .” (The over/under for Newt Gingrich is three.)

Right Turn will be back after the debate with a wrap up and analysis.
