Martin O'Malley proved he could steal the show in the Democratic primary.

Friday night’s Iowa Wing Ding Dinner lacked the flash of the recent Fox News Republican debate, but that’s not the point. There’s actual meat at the Wing Ding – and not just chicken wings: candidates are expected to talk about policy as part of their appeals for more donations and to lend upper-card star power to an undercard of Democratic candidates for county and state-wide Iowa offices.

And, for outsiders, it’s a solid preview of the personalities of the Democratic primary, barring any more candidates: Lincoln Chafee is a nice man; Hillary Clinton is formidably polished; Bernie Sanders is righteously angry;and Martin O’Malley will probably siphon energy and ideas from all of them, standing like a tall, handsome, safely male candidate with a slightly affected southern twang.

Pisses me off this guy couldn't give credit where it's due. Anyone with a Guardian account, please let him know!

1. The entire tone of that piece

was awful. I thought he was unnecessarily harsh on all the candidates, but he seemed to relish demeaning M O'M.

2. I agree,

generally negative and finally useless.
