I don't think anybody helped themselves. George Snuffaluffagus or whatever the hell his name is kept on attacking Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, leaving the rest of the candidates grasping for airtime to answer what few questions were asked. All in all, it was just about as unsatisfactory a debate as I've seen, and it started with the "moderators". There was one guy who actually seemed as if he cared about the questions and answers, rather than trying to protect his god and king Obama, but I can't remember his name right now.
All in all, this was a debate that really could have been better. And it almost would have been better to have no debate at all.
