The opening-night audience - longtime fans of 1812's annual news-and-views send-up This Is the Week That Is - cheers to see Patsy (Jen Childs) back in South Philly, wearing her pink Eagles sweatshirt, giving Washington a piece of her mind. When she announces that 1812 Productions is the only company devoted to comedy in the whole country, she offers an aside, "I know, I know. Can yez stand it?" All the expectable, mockable suspects are rounded up for our amusement: the Republican presidential candidates, the Occupiers, Greece, superheroes, the Republican presidential candidates, President Obama, Michelle Obama, Wall Street bankers, spin doctors, the Republican presidential candidates, Harvard professors, newscasters, television talk shows, and, wait, did I mention Republican presidential candidates?

He couldn't get arrested. Your classic putdown for the man on the move going nowhere fast. Of course, the other day one of them did get arrested - taken away in handcuffs, in fact, for trying to crash the party - and it won't do him much good, either. We're talking losers. We're talking all those Republican presidential candidates bringing up the rear of the pack while getting their own rears kicked by voters across this thoroughly underwhelmed land of ours. It's not just Alan Keyes, who decided - until an Atlanta TV station and some Atlanta police decided otherwise - that he'd join a presidential debate that was limited to the top four contenders.

ISSUE | CAMPAIGN 2016 Sestak offers experience, leadership I've been a strong supporter of the Obama administration, but I was surprised to see President Obama and Vice President Biden jump into the Pennsylvania Democratic primary for U.S. Senate ("Obama and Biden endorse McGinty," Thursday). Snubbing Joe Sestak was a big mistake. He served two terms in the House of Representatives for the Seventh District, which traditionally is held by a Republican. Sestak was a strong supporter of the Affordable Care Act and other progressive bills, and he knows the issues.

PENNSYLVANIA is a decrepit old train, sputtering along in the wrong direction, with a bunch of hapless politicians behind the controls. Those were some of the takeaways of a new Daily News/ Franklin & Marshall College poll of 614 registered voters in the state. The poll results, which will be made public today, show that 62 percent of voters believe the state is on the wrong track, an eight-point increase from just two months ago. Government and politicians were identified as the state's biggest problems by 39 percent of voters.

ISSUE | CAMPAIGN 2016 No sign of leadership As a lifelong Democrat who probably has never voted a straight party ticket, I was flabbergasted by the childish behavior of the Republican presidential candidates in Thursday's televised debate ("Southern Slugfest," Friday). The first hour and 40 minutes consisted of name-calling and rude attacks on the Democratic candidates, grandstanding, and criticism of each other. Nowhere was there a plan to solve any of the issues facing this country.

House Speaker Newt Gingrich stormed into this bastion of presidential politics yesterday, but brushed aside speculation he might run, suggesting he already is more important than his party's candidates and nearly as important as the President. The Georgia Republican happily welcomed the possibility of meeting President Clinton in a town-meeting setting tomorrow, when both men will be in the state. But he dismissed a suggestion that Republican presidential candidates might be invited.

Based on the NBC television network's promotion of it, the presidential debate tonight will rate somewhere between a great moment in political history and a sort of prime-time battle royal. "For the first time ever," the network has proclaimed in full-page newspaper advertisements, "all the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates contend for their party nominations on the same stage. " But in the view of many political professionals, the two-hour broadcast - the first sustained exposure on commercial television for most of the candidates - could turn out to be a blur, a montage of words and images too confounding for most viewers to sort out. The program is to include two political parties, four separate segments, 24 candidate-to-candidate questions and 12 individual politicians, each trying to make the most of the eight or nine minutes that will be his. The casual viewer is likely to have trouble separating the six Democrats from the six Republicans.

WASHINGTON - With just over a year left in the race for the White House, campaign finance reports released Saturday offered the first detailed look at the haves and the have-nots among the Republican presidential candidates. Two of the top Republican contenders, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Gov. Rick Perry, brought in more than $14 million and $17 million respectively. Meanwhile, candidates including former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and businessman Herman Cain raised significantly less.

COLUMBIA, S.C. - Republican presidential candidates traversed South Carolina on Friday - upstate, low country, and in between - to make urgent final appeals one day before the state's primary, as polls showed a tightening race after a week of nasty campaigning. Can Donald Trump lock down his place as the undisputed GOP front-runner? And can anyone break away from the rest of the pack to end the party's stalemate and challenge him? When ballots are counted Saturday night, voters might have provided some answers to these and other pressing questions about the GOP race, which some party strategists are predicting could go on for a while.

To hear the Republican presidential candidates tell it, Americans should duck and cover as in a Cold War drill. The sooner, the better, too, because the world is dangerous. Fear has been a main narrative thread in the GOP campaign the last two months, after terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif., moved national security to the top of the list of concerns of the party's primary voters. This was on vivid display in Thursday's prime-time debate, as GOP candidates cataloged a range of potential threats, from nuclear-armed terrorists to mass gun confiscation by the federal government, to Syrian refugees, and even the apocalypse itself.

NASHUA, N.H. - The Big Dog was back, but his bark was subdued. Former President Bill Clinton hit the campaign trail Monday on behalf of his wife, with a discursive speech that touched on the prosperity the country enjoyed during his presidency in the 1990s, Hillary Clinton's work as Arkansas' first lady, and reminiscences of falling in love with her at Yale Law School. He spoke in a raspy voice without the joy in rhetorical combat expected of one of the most gifted speakers of his generation - which, come to think of it, may have been the point.

HARRISBURG - Highlighting what they say is a national increase in anti-Muslim bias, triggered in part by the rhetoric of some Republican presidential candidates, about 50 amateur lobbyists affiliated with the Philadelphia chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations converged at the state capitol to pitch lawmakers on a range of social issues. Armed with a talking-points memo and posters emblazoned with "I am a proud American Muslim" and "Islamophobia = Racism," the members of the advocacy group fanned out for office visits with legislators and their staffs.

Saying America is so mired in "moral depravity" that only a mass appeal to the Almighty can save it, Christian evangelical leaders from across the country are planning a giant prayer rally for Sept. 29 in Philadelphia. The "America for Jesus" daylong gathering on Independence Mall is expected to draw at least 30,000 people who "want to turn the nation around," said Bishop Anne Giminez, chairwoman of the event and pastor of Rock Pentecostal Church in Virginia Beach, Va. "We see the symptoms of decline all around us," she said Wednesday, citing murder and abortion rates and the decline of marriage.

Today is Super Tuesday, the day 10 states cast votes for the four remaining Republican presidential candidates, two of whom have no chance of winning. Newt Gingrich, better when trailing than as a front-runner, had his greatest success in debates where his intellect, wit, experience, and direct manner made him the most effective communicator of consequential ideas. With fewer debates ahead, a diminishing war chest, and an organization in such disarray that he failed to make the ballot in his home state of Virginia, the former House speaker's time has likely passed even if he wins Georgia.
