Chris Cillizza picks last nights debates winners and losers...

Chris Cillizza shares his thoughts on the Republican debates last night on his blog, The Fix from the Washington Post. I don't agree with him on Rudy except that it would have been difficult for him to do worse than he did on in the last debate, however I did especially enjoy this part of Chris's column:
One Liners: You could just hear each campaign's consultants telling their guy before the debate: "Be funny. People like funny." Former Gov. Mike Huckabee (Ark.) scored best with his line equating Washington's free-spending ways with "John Edwards at a beauty shop." Heyooooo! McCain flashed his wit with his oft-repeated story about a former drunken sailor who took offense at having his spending habits compared to those of Congress. Rep. Tom Tancredo (Colo.) got off a canned but semi-successful zinger about the alleged conversions to conservatism by some of his rivals; "I trust those conversions when they happen on the road to Damascus, not the road to Des Moines," Tancredo said. Romney seemed eager to get in the game, but his "joke" about the solid blue political nature of Massachusetts ("Have you ever bought a suit and look at it and you can't tell if it is blue or black? That is how blue Massachusetts is.") fell flat.

I'm also not so sure that people will over react to what Ron Paul stated, most of the people that like him appreciate the fact that he calls it as he sees it.
