Tweeting The NBC5 GOP Debate

This was easily a better affair than last week's ABC7 debate, and the main reason for that was moderator Carol Marin, who asked a combination of fresh questions and old questions wrapped in fresh formulations. She also actually listened to the candidates' answers and wasn't afraid to follow-up on their claims.

Analysis: Rutherford's been exposed, Brady isn't really cosmopolitan enough to run the nation's fifth-largest state, Rauner is a phony baloney rich enough to buy the nomination and Dillard is the classic Edgar-Ryan-Thompson candidate except for his inability to run a campaign.

And let's not forget: Pat Quinn is indeed the luckiest Illinois pol this side of Barack Obama because if Bill Daley and/or Lisa Madigan were in the race, he'd be getting beat up pretty good right now in debates too.
