The first Republican Presidential debate went off last night and it looks like Herman Cain ran away with it. Yes, I know I’m a Cain supporter, but you don’t have to take my word for it. Check out the video in Stacy’s post on the event (which also features a brief exclusive post-debate interview) and listen to what the folks in that focus group have to say. See also this post by The Lonely Conservative and watch a little of Cain’s performance in the video clips provided by Duane Lester here and here.

I think that focus group is very important and it’ll probably be given short shrift by the pundits, professional and otherwise. That’s a shame because those folks are just like millions of other folks who’ll head to voting machines all around the country in November, 2012 and they, not the pundits, will decide who becomes President. I’m sure someone can come up with a list of reasons why they think their opinion is worth more than the people in that room, but when it comes right down to it, simple voter enthusiasm matters more than anything else in the world. If Herman Cain can wow more and more of the country like he wowed that crowd last night, he will be our next President. It’s that simple.

And now, links:

  • This is a good interview with Andrew Breitbart, who is perhaps the most dynamic figure in the conservative movement right now.
  • It’s odd that while our President is bound and determined to build up our welfare state, the British are showing open disdain for theirs.
  • Spike the football? Yes, please. As a matter of fact, I hope we see a videotape of every SEAL who went on that Abbottabad raid in a giant high-five celebration like the Fun Bunch.
  • Why is it that progressivism always sounds sinister when translated back to the original German?
  • I do believe that Moe Lane has summed up the administration’s week-long blundering in one paragraph.
  • Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) — still a class act.
  • Normally I get a bit of a kick out of taking those quick political typology tests — you know, the ones where you answer 20 questions and it puts you somewhere on an ideological axis. Well, this one, by the Pew Research Center is horrible.
  • Here’s a first look at China’s new space station. Let me say that again: China’s new space station.
