The race for the Democratic nomination is getting unquestionably caustic, but the CNN/YouTube GOP debate proved that on the Republican side it’s gotten downright nasty.

I half expected Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney to get into a spitting match, as they launched the debate with a confusing, bitter exchange over who really provided a sanctuary for illegal immigrants —- Giuliani for the entire city of New York and Romney in his mansion. Had these immigrants seen these personalities on display, they may have gone back to their native countries.

John McCain, as he has during other debates, came across as an elder voice of reason, even if you didn’t agree with his stance on the troop surge.

Even Fred Thompson, criticized for being a bit too , produced an ad that forced cnn to delay a commercial break.
