Instead of being a chance for the Republican candidates to debate each other, the CNBC debate ended up pitting the candidates in a debate against the mainstream media.
And that’s what was awesome about it.
I take a very pragmatic view of debates: will what happened cost my party votes in the general election? And the answer here is an unequivocal ‘no.’ We had a lot of good video clip fodder yesterday, and it was all of Republicans smashing smug media idiots right in the metaphorical chops. And, as Robert Tracinski went on to note in that article: the media hates the Republican party, and wants us to die in a fire. Best that our candidates get practice in dealing with that early.

Some good discussion along these lines in your Edmund Fitzgerald thread .. and, speaking of which, have I mentioned that I hate that song?
It certainly doesn’t have the punch of Stan Rogers’s “Mary Ellen Carter”.
