The debate was a debacle
I did love Marco's statement on the Democrats' abortion extremism, which I noticed that several other candidates picked up on.
Il Duce was, unfortunately, effective. His crazy claim that somehow Cruz got Carson's votes in Iowa didn't hurt him as much as it should have. He continues to tap dance with enough skill that his fundamental ignorance about the issues isn't laid bare.
The governors all did well. Kasich and Christie did better than Bush. But the sane wing of the party has to settle on a candidate if the Republicans aren't going to go down to defeat with Trump or Cruz.
