This week in politics, GOP candidates took turns at beating on Rick Perry in Monday's Tea Party debate, Democrats lost Anthony Weiner's congressional seat, Michele Bachmann reinvented herself as the anti-vaccine candidate, and a big new Sarah Palin (ahem) exposé delivered dubious-yet-irresistible sexual revelations. Take it away, Twitter.

@BorowitzReport: "The only reason I think the Palin sex tape may be authentic is the person keeps saying 'Drill, baby, drill.'"

@TheInDecider: "O, to have been a hairdresser on the wall at Donald Trump's dinner with Rick Perry."

@FrankConniff: "Bachmann says HPV vaccine causes retardation, which will result in a new block of voters too smart to vote for her."

@funnyordie: "The Glen Rice scandal is way out of line w/ the GOP's values. They're interested in fucking black people by the millions, not one at a time"

@ApocalypseHow: "Ahmadinejad launching a 'charm offensive.' For ex, he's upgraded the Holocaust from not happening to 'a He said/She said thing.'"

@BorowitzReport: "BREAKING: In Rare Public Statement, God Tells Pat Robertson to Shut the Fuck Up"

@TheInDecider: "The GOP won Anthony Weiner’s seat. Did you know his name is a synonym for penis?"

@TheOnion: "New Study Finds Women Should Only Be Making 20 Cents Less On Dollar Than Men"
