Vodkapundit recaps the Republican debate. Saves me from having to watch it…

The second Republican Presidential Debate is on. Life is good.
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…
As I prepared for the Democratic debate, here are the word tag clouds for the Republican Presidential Debate. Click on the image to see a larger view of Rep. Duncan Hunter’s tag cloud. Anything pop out at you? ;-)
Too bad we couldn’t do the same for the candidate’s gestures. McCain’s finger jabbing would fill the box.
Chris Matthews hosted the Republican Presidential Debates. Gaggle recaps the highlights.
I’m looking forward to debates with fewer debaters. There wasn’t enough time for this many. I’d also entertain the idea of having a different moderator, but it’s not necessary. All the candidates had to deal with the same inane questions.
The Republican Presidential Debate took place at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.

The Republican Debate is on tonight. Gotta remember to set my DVR.
No global war on terror, here. Move along…
Update: It will be interesting to see the count for the Republicans. I just listened to (most of) their first debate, and I’m not sure I heard al Qaeda any more…
