After the first Democratic Presidential Debate, the blogosphere made a big deal that the Democratic candidates mentioned al-Qaeda only twice during the entire debate. I joined in the fray.
So how did the Republican candidates do in their first debate? I counted five times in the transcript plus moderator Chris Matthews’ one mention.
Five times isn’t a lot for ten candidates, but it is 2.5 times as many as the Democrats.
Yup, moving along…
