Republican debate tonight. Couldn’t watch it because pressing projects. . .well, pressed. But the 8 or 10 eminent pundits live blogging it over at The Corner were all praising Fred Thompson’s performance to the heavens.
Â And Jim Geraghty over at the Campaign Spot recapped the debate like this:
Tonight, Fred Reminded Me of Roy Hobbs.
Winner: Thompson. This performance was so commanding, I wanted his last answer to echo back to the lights in the back of the auditorium, blow out all the lamps and spotlights, for the theme to â€œthe Naturalâ€ to play, and for him to trot around the stage in slow motion while sparks showered down in the background.
So…a good night for Fred then. Hopefully it will translate into a lot of South Carolina evangelicals voting with the heads rather than their identities.
