Okay, let’s get ready to ruuuuuummmmmmbllllllllllle. Either that or watch this debate. One or the other.

8:58 PM: Watching these three Fox commentators who are probably about 205 between the three of them. And a woman about old enough to be their daughter. Welcome to Fox News.

9:01 PM: It’s kind of weird to think that Newt is still running for president.

9:19 PM: Wow, Bachmann launches monologue attack.

9:21 PM: I’ll give Pawlenty credit. He decided to go down fighting. The truth is that from her Minnesota days there are so many stories about crazy stuff she did. And those are the stories the Republicans tell. But he just can’t quite go there. That said, he did basically call Bachmann a liar. But Bachmann, crazy as she is and as many false claims she makes, was just on fire. Just rattling off all her red meat.

9:25 PM: What was your sense of how that fight between Bachmann and Pawlenty played on TV? Send us emails at our comments email address up at the upper right.

9:27 PM: Always challenging to ask Newt a challenging question since his response is always to go completely nuclear and up the ante and basically go crazy.

9:31 PM: I must say Huntsman sounded pretty good.

9:33 PM: If Huntsman was the nominee he could give Obama a really tough race, at least among middle of the road people. Lucky for Obama there’s basically no chance that’s going to happen.
