I didn't watch it. 9:00 pm is too late a start for this early bird. (Brian Williams would have sent me to dreamland within the first five minutes, anyway.) I gather it wasn't the battle of the titans so many had hoped for. But I think Romney scored a palpable hit here:
Santorum's moment here. Of course he's right. Does it matter?
But if you want real entertainment, watch Sarah Palin cut Chris Christie off at the knees, mom-style:
(The Right Scoop has the entire Palin interview here.)
Update: I just read some of the transcript of the Palin interview. She was quite serious about that "rookie mistake":
I think if Chris were asked about some of his past actions, taking a state helicopter to his kid’s baseball game, some people may say, well, that sort of embarrassed your party, Chris. And he would then be on the receiving end of a comment that maybe he wished that somebody kept as an inside thought and not blasting that to the rest of the nation. He’s been in office a year or two is all, and he’ll learn that the media goad you. They want you to say things like that in order to boost ratings and make it more of a reality show-type scenario that we’re watching in the GOP primary. And a comment like that just kind of played right on into that narrative.”She goes on to defend Newt's record, back in the day, of conservative action. At least he's got something to point to, which is more than you can say for Romney.
He just produced an ad for the Democrats.
See comments on whether Newt has actually embarrassed the Republican party, assuming it's capable of being embarrassed.
