Debate Slog

My record is intact; I haven’t watched any of the GOP debates. At this stage of the campaign, all they are is a bunch of people yammering for attention and trying to get the most mileage out of their latest Frank Luntz quip or exploit someone else’s gaffe. Other than that, you’re not going to get any more substance out of them than you do from watching another episode of “Real Whackjobs” or whatever the latest reality show ratings rage is.

For those of you who want a minute by minute breakdown, Think Progress watched it and live-blogged it. TPM has it boiled down to 100 seconds.

I think the only question left unanswered tonight is how far Herman Cain will fall in the polls now that his fifteen minutes are up.
