GOP Candidates Have First Debate

Well, the Republican candidates for President (even the pipe-dreamers like Ron Paul) held their first debate tonight at the Reagan Library. However, it was on MSNBC and my television is set to self-destruct if it ever tunes into that channel. Michelle Malkin has a thumbnail sketch of the highlights. Not surprisingly, Chris Matthews is asking asinine questions, but Mitt Romney seems to be handling it well:

Matthews to Romney: What do you say to Roman Catholic leaders who would deny communion to those who support abortion rights?

Romney: "I don't have anything to say to them. They can do whatever the heck they want!" [Applause/laughter.]

He is good. Also, Rudy is kind of tripping over the abortion issue. Sorry, but I just can't get worked up about abortion. Call me a heathen if you wish, I just can't see how it can be more important than fighting terror.
