Why Americans Hate the Media

Having given him a smidgen of credit for pressing Huck on the Fair Tax, let me add that overall the debate was exactly what I would expect from Russert-moderated affair, thick with pointlessly gotcha-ish questions seemingly designed with YouTube in mind. I thought Russert's badgering of Mitt Romney about how much money he's spent on the race was the low point (and no, I didn't care for Huckabee's Russert-like crack about saving Romney's sons inheritance either), but I'm sure everyone else has their favorite examples. (McCain's Mom! The NYTimes hates Rudy! Chuck Norris!)

Overall, I'm with Geraghty - the candidates were too restrained and the questions too lame to pick a winner. And so to bed.
