Live Blogging the Republican Presidential Candidate Debate

I Spy Sexism?

In watching the Republican debate tonight with Roomie*, I noticed that the candidates seemed to only refer to one Democratic candidate. Whether criticizing the blue party's policies or individual campaign strategies, one Democratic candidate seemed to take the spotlight.

Do the male Republican candidates have a crush on the female Democratic candidate? Is this like middle school when you tease and put down the girl you like the most?

Or is it just easier to throw rhetorical punches at a straw woman?

PS...And Rudy Guilani on "policing the internet"...Thoughts??? An FCC for the 'net - what would that look like?

*We enjoy horror flicks.


Please note that as my M.A. thesis project is complete, the George Washington University is no longer overseeing research conducted in conjunction with this blog (effective June 2007 to present). The Informed Consent Materials created while this blog was under GWU's IRB oversight are still available for your information and the principles outlined in them are still being used as a general guide for my continued work.
