Best line, by far, of analysis of Donald Trump in the Republican debate last night.

This comes courtesy of Jonathan Chait.

It is hard to say whether his bombastic persona won or lost him support among Republicans. Trump’s self-presentation appears to be obvious parody, indistinguishable from a comedian lampooning him. He makes goofy faces and body gestures. He does not act like a regular politician, or a politician who is trying to come off as authentic, or a strongman, or even the goofballs who are running for jobs as talk-show hosts in the guise of a campaign. He’s just a weird asshole who seems to have wandered onto the stage with little preparation.

Ooo!  Ouch!  Damn, that's a nice takedown.
