Yes, I watched it. Because, ya know, it’s important to know what the other side is saying. Oh, and for the entertainment value.
My vote for dominator of the GOP Debate?
Anderson Cooper. Yup. The moderator. He moderated the crap out of that debate. He asked all the right questions. He kept those feisty Republicans in line (for the most part). My hero.
However, following the debate, Herman Cain’s ratings skyrocketed. Hmm…maybe because he blamed unemployment on the…unemployed??

Herman Cain recently criticized the Occupy Wall Street protesters, saying, ” Don’t blame Wall Street . Don’t blame the big banks. If you don’t have a job and you’re not rich, blame yourself.” At Tuesday night’s CNN debate, Cain stood by his comments — to loud cheers from the audience.
And dang, did you see Rick Perry and Mitt Romney go at it? I, personally, thought it would turn into a UFC match between the two. Unfortunately, it did not go that far. But almost…almost…
Poor Michelle Bachman was the butt of several jokes and mean-spirited comments on Twitter.
The GOP debate was intense. There were winners. And there were losers.
But mostly losers. Everyone is a winner in their hearts!!

Barack Obama: Near the end of the debate, Newt Gingrich stated that “maximizing bickering is probably not the road to the White House.” It’s a good point: The debate was awash in interruptions, accusations and petty point scoring that made all involved look less than presidential.
As much as I enjoyed it, I prefer the Saturday Night Live GOP debate a bit more. But that’s just me.
