I just filed my story about the debate and wanted to share some thoughts with those of you who might be watching it online.

The unwillingness on behalf of the candidates to directly attack current RNC Chairman Robert "Mike" Duncan for his management of the 2008 presidential election dismays me.

In big-time college and NFL football, coaches get fired after a bad season. Everyone seems to think, and will tell you on background, it should be the same in politics. No one wants to stay it out loud on stage though. At least for today.

Update: Townhall got a big shout-out from Ken Blackwell at the debate. When asked what his favorite website is he said "Townhall.com."  In fact, Blackwell mentioned Townhall.com three times by my count.
