GOP Debate Open Thread

In about 10 minutes or so, nearly all of the Republican presidential candidates will gather in Las Vegas for yet another debate — the fifth in the last six weeks. It will air live on CNN.

I’ll probably have some thoughts in the morning, but in the meantime, I thought I’d leave up an open thread for those who tuned in. Who do you think won? Who went after whom most and why? Did Rick Perry, who’s debated more as a national candidate since Labor Day than he has in three terms as governor or Texas, finally come prepared? Did every one gang up on Mitt Romney? Did Herman Cain say “9-9-9” over and over again, for no apparent reason? Did the audience do anything wildly inappropriate?

The floor is yours.
