I was unable to watch the debate last night. But my father, a GOP activist since the early 1960s and a onetime Republican National Committeeman, told me that he came away from it liking Duncan Hunter the best. At the very least, Hunter is making a great case that he ought to be Secretary of Defense. Meanwhile, I am disturbed (but not surprised) to hear that Huckabee again is getting high marks. Conservatives ought not fall for His Glibness. He’s a big spender with ethical blind spots and is not the guy we need on the ticket.
All that said, no matter what happened in last night’s debate, NOBODY did better yesterday than Fred Thompson, whose response to Michael Moore was so good that it is worth watching again if you missed it the first time. This guy has star power, great instincts, and solid conservative principles.
