BESIDES THE POLAND BIT, FORD KICKED CARTER'S TEETH IN!:

Marco Rubio's Debate Spinners Doing the World's Hardest Job (Jonathan Chait, 2/08/16, New York)

3. Rubio won because he did not literally die. Harris: "Chris Christie had one singular goal heading into the debate, which was to leave a body on the floor. He took his best shot, and he utterly failed." Rubio spokesman Alex Conant: "We came into this debate saying that the goal was to get through it, knowing that you have a bunch of candidates who are in a fight for their life. The other candidates came into this debate needing to knock Marco out and have a moment. They failed to knock Marco out, and the best moments of the debate belonged to Marco." And Harris again: "What Gov. Christie was trying to do was to knock Marco out, to kill him dead. He took his best shot, and he failed."
