    So far, boooooooring.

    Tancredo sounds nervous. Giuliani is rambling. Brownback is over dramatical. So far McCain, Huckabee, and Romeny are doing the best.

    More to follow.

    Anyone else watch this? Thoughts?

    I thought McCain did the best. Brownback clearly distinguished himself as the religious right conservative. Romney and Huckabee did well. Tancredo was all about immigration but didn't shine elsewhere.

    I think the people who helped their standing were McCain, Romney, and Brownback (Brownback will get his bump from the South.)

    Everyone else won't get that much of a bump.

    How are you watching this already? I'm getting that it isn't on until 11pm eastern (8 pacific). I put it on CNN but Anderson Cooper's doing a stupid Larry King retrospective.

    :(

    I guess they'll rerun it at 8 here. That's what Cooper said.

    Meh. They're not showing the debates, just analysis. Gergen, Huffington, John King, and some other guy, hosted by Anderson Cooper. I can't tell whether the analysis is more informative or the debates themselves.

    Rudy ate it on Roe vs. Wade. LOLz!!! Big surprise. :wtf:

    Rudy's stance on Roe v. Wade was, "If a strict constructionist judge viewed it as precedent it would be 'okay'."

    Any thoughts on your boy Ron Paul?

    Based on his responses, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the unknowing and misinformed Republicans mistook him for a liberal instead of a libertarian.

    His stance is that he's pro-choice, especially when running for office in a pro-choice district, but will say whatever he needs to say to get the nomination and hasn't yet figured out how to spin his record.
