I'll make this quick because this debate has led me to drinking and a migraine.
Two Winners: Huckabee and McCain.
McCain won on scalps. He got Mitt Romney and he got Ron Paul. McCain was the adult in the room all night. He was stable, composed, and mature.
Mike Huckabee scored the debate points on rhetoric and is the winner of this debate. He did really well. He showed up Romney. He showed up Rudy. If Mike could convince me he's actually a free market guy, I'd be tempted.
Downgrade tonight: Rudy. He handled the Bible question terribly. He handled the abortion question terribly. He did get in a great answer on the Yankees.
Loser tonight: Freaky kid with the Bible. Dumb kid with the flag. CNN giving the soapbox to the gay retired General -- no bias on the issue there Anderson.
I think Fred held his own. He did well. But he did not shine and he needed to. I did think his YouTube clip made the point he needed to make. If Fred doesn't do something soon, though, and soon as in in the next two weeks, I think he'll flat line. Don't make me have to find a new guy, Fred.
