At the first break: Romney & Santorum winning, Newt got hit a couple of times.
At the second break: dammit, Ron Paul got in some good points. And if this is Santorum’s last debate – it probably is – he’s going out well.
Preemptive comment before the third break: we’re going to lead with a First Lady question. Nobody’s getting out of that one with their soul and/or dignity intact (and, yes, there really is a The Ron Paul Family Cookbook (December 2009)). Yup, it was painful.
Last question: “…How you are the most electable?” You have got to be kidding me.
Anyway. Newt got hurt tonight, Romney handled it well, Santorum had a great debate that won’t matter in the slightest, and Paul was the least crazy that I’ve ever heard him.
