Winner: CNN/YouTube. Whether due to timing or conduct, there were actual two or three minute debates that broke out in their three hour dog and pony show.
Co-Winner: Hillary Clinton. Again, more time in the "debate" than anyone on the stage.
Clear Loser: Ronald Reagan's "11th Commandment"
Romney: go away.
Guiliani: Clear, forceful, right, and wrong. Right in acknowledging states' rights. Wrong in ignoring states' rights.
Thompson: wake up.
McCain: You're conflicted. We get it. Read a book, look in the mirror, and make a decision.
Huckabee: Hello! Where'd this guy come from?
Hunter: Thank you! Without your insistence, I'm not sure we would have heard from you, Tancredo, Paul, Huckabee, or Thompson! Now, go build fence with Chris Simcox.
Paul: you should have just stuck with the head shaking as McCain ranted. Oh, and CNN loves (make that LOVES) Ron Paul!
Excellent! Go away.
Persons who still believe in the medevial idea of a "government": Huckabee vs. Paul is the 2008 race. Why?
1) Religiosity vs. religiosity
2) Social programs vs. free markets
3) Keynes vs. economics
4) Interventionism vs. non-interventionism
5) Fair Tax vs. no income tax
No more "debates" are required. The general election is a non-issue. Chuck the rest of the pikers, sit Charlie Rose in between Paul and Huckabee broadcast 24/7 until the end of March, and let's go to the convention.
No other candidate, Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, ConstiGreenNazi, etc. brings anything even remotely different. Go away.
