Fact Checking the Republican Debate

Via Think Progress (video), Tommy Thompson had some splainin' to do today after he said last nite that private employers should be able to fire homosexuals.

The NYT has more on the debates. I was going to link to the WaPo article too but it's written by Howard Kurtz - not exactly my favourite "journalist".

And then there was this:

There were revealing moments that went past the well-rehearsed lines by all the candidates. Three of the candidates — Mr. Huckabee, Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas and Representative Tom Tancredo of Colorado — raised their hands to signal that they did not believe in evolution.

I suspect their candidacies won't be evolving into much of anything either.

I didn't catch the debate and I didn't watch the Dems' debate either. At this point (it is only May '07 after all), the field is far too wide and the talking points are much too predictable. Wake me when it gets interesting - around October '08.
