The GOP debate
Here's a link to the piece I did for the Register's Sunday Commentary section on the Republican presidential -- well, event, it was hardly a debate -- last Thursday. In brief, I thought the format stunk, Romney did himself the most good, McCain hurt himself and Giuliani didn't hurt himself badly. Ron Paul distinguished himself by being against the war, but the mainstream media by and large didn't see his presence as all that significant. If it gives him staying power, however, that perception could change.
