Culled from Headlines:
Newt calls himself a Real Politik Wilsonian
Bachman calls Newt Frugal Socialist
Paul calls Perry a Cheerleader
McCain calls Paul Hitler Appeaser
McCain calls Romney Flipflopper
Romney calls Himself Middle Class
Huntsman calls Romney Well-Lubricated Weather Vane

Mr Paul in particular seems to be fond of challenging the intellectual credentials of his opponents – does this betoken some intellectual insecurity on his own part?
(By the way, I always thought the most unintelligent thing Mr Gore ever did was to allow himself to be presented to the American electorate as the intelligent candidate, as if this was the most important reason for voting for him.)
