UPDATE (11:01 p.m.): Mitt Romney stood with his hands in his pockets all night, because everyone on stage thinks Ronald Reagan’s 11th Commandment applies only to frontrunners. He wasn’t touched. Romney was so bored that at one point he decided to tear into Jon Huntsman on China, which led to Huntsman unleashing Mandarin non sequitars, according to Twitter translation (end snark). Truly stunning, but if you were watching football, be glad. ABC should lose their debate privileges if they keep sending out Diane Sawyer, who is so off her game in these settings as to look like she doesn’t have one at all. Oh, and for the record, the title of this post came before the debate even started and ended up being true. Karen Tumulty tweeted the ads in New Hampshire were tougher than the debate & I have no doubt she’s correct. See Ron Paul ad below. Meanwhile, Romney up in South Carolina.

It’s Rick Santorum’s big…
Santorum—and anyone else in the field, or anyone who may still enter—deserves “an open field and a fair chance” to compete for the “big White House” that Lincoln occupied. All American history is saying, and all we are saying, is . . . give Rick a chance. – Bill Kristol
Quite an ad from Ron Paul above, isn’t it?
Whether you’re watching the debate on ABC or just stopping by, hope you’re enjoying your Saturday night.
