Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketMy wife and I just suffered through what must have been the 493rd Republican debate. Aside from agreeing with each other that Tom Tancredo reminds us of Mr. Roper from TV's "Three's Company", we did find just a few points on which we agreed with a candidate:

Huckabee: Jesus was too smart to run for public office.
Tancredo: With the deficits we have and spending out of control, we don't need to spend money on a manned mission to Mars.
Hunter: You shouldn't throw shotguns. Also he wouldn't pledge to Grover Norquist not to ever raise taxes, citing the possibility of national emergency.
McCain: Waterboarding is torture, it's illegal, and America should not do it.
Paul: The best thing we can do for Iraq is to give them their country back.
Romney: Some parts of the Bible are allegorical.
Giuliani: The right to keep and bear arms is an individual right.
Thompson: (referring to a CG animation of Dick Cheney) For a second there, I thought that was me.

All in all it was entertaining. I think Huckabee and McCain were the winners here, in that they came across slightly less crazy and brainwashed than the others.

I did like the YouTube format.
