Republicans spar

Posted By on Mon, Oct 22, 2007 at 5:59 AM

The Republican candidates are getting testy. Transcript here. Their counter-punching leads the NY Times version of debate last night. Mike Huckabee declares victory for his refusal to speak ill of other candidates (as if he hasn't). He continues to insist there's no health care crisis, which will be news to the 40 million or so without coverage and those who are covered but struggling to pay $1,000 a month and more for family coverage on low wages. And, of course, he had a quip for the occasion. Grab your sides:

"I just want to remind you of something, when all the old hippies find out they get free drugs, wait to see what that costs us," Huckabee joked.

Note for the record:

Mike Huckabee, debate Oct. 21: Americans are "looking for a presidential candidate who's not so interested in a demolition derby against the other people in his own party."

Mike Huckabee, speech Oct. 20, referring to other Republican candidates positions on values issues: "It’s important that a person doesn’t have more positions on issues that Elvis had waist sizes.”
