* By the way, I still can't get over the fact that the "moderators" being chosen for these debates aren't moderators at all. They're antagonists. If you listen to CBS's Scott Pelley's mutterings after he's asked Newt Gingrich a question, you'll hear him disagreeing with Newt's answer. "It's not the rule of law. No."
If Scott Pelley wants to argue with one of the candidates on the stage, shouldn't he be on the stage?
Why not stop the charade and let Debbie Wasserman Schultz play "moderator"?

From National Review:
Scott Pelley was a terrible moderator. He treated the men who might be the next commander in chief like schoolchildren, cutting them off in mid-sentence, lecturing them to answer his questions. He even lectured Newt Gingrich on policy, telling him that killing “terrorist suspects” is “not the rule of law.” Big mistake. Newt smacked him down, explaining that we are at war and in war we are allowed to kill the enemy without a court order.Who sets the rules for these things, the Democratic National Committee?
This was CBS’s first and only debate — and it showed.
