"This is exactly what's wrong with politics. It's show business over substance. I'm not going to kiss his ring and I'm not going to kiss any other part of his anatomy."

- Former Utah Governor Jon Hunstman, explaining his decision not to appear at a December 27 candidate's debate hosted by bad-hair egomaniac Donald Trump.

Newt Gingrich is the only candidate so far to accept the billionaire's invitation to debate. I'm willing to bet that there is so little participation that Trump has to either cancel the event or re-bill it as a "roundtable" or some such nonsense.
