I also utterly disagree with Ed on the quality of CNN's questions (even discounting to zero the planted general.) A commenter at Powerline got this exactly right:
CNN chose the questions so once again we get the liberal's perspective of conservatism.Not a single question on trade. Not a single question on education. Shoving the Iraq questions until late in the program. It was highly manipulative towards CNN's ends, and not for the betterment of the Republican watching this program to decide who they should support in the primary.
"What would Jesus do?"
"Do you believe this book"
Lock and loaded gun prop question.
And of course...Should women go to jail if they have an abortion.
Last thing I learned -- Rusty Humphries is more than a Louie Anderson look-alike. Michael and I greatly enjoyed dinner with him and Patriot station manager John Hunt before the debate, and that fellow's knowledge of the Middle East was impressive. I'll have to start listening.
