Republican Debate Liveblog with Allen Ginsberg

Good evening, and welcome to our Little Epic Against Oblivion coverage of the New Hampshire Republican Debate.

We go live now to our political correspondant on the ground, Allen Ginsberg.

Good evening Allen, what's the word where you are? What are your impressions of the candidates so far? Who's standing out?

It looks like all candidates are uniting against one thing and that's President Obama.

"Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.”

Right.... Well, we know where you stand on poetry and the body politic, but our viewers would like your political analysis of the debate on CNN in which right now the candidates--
“Whoever controls the media, the images, controls the culture.”

Well, perhaps, but what about the candidates' "common sense solutions" to our nation's problems? The figure tonight seems to be a 5% growth will be required to lift us out of this recession. It seemed the voters in New Hampshire are concerned with returning manufacturing jobs to the United States, creating jobs, and dealing with entitlements. Who is standing out out in response to these important questions about our nation's economy.

“Nobody saves America by sniffing cocaine. Jiggling your knees blankeyed in the rain, when it snows in your nose you catch cold in your brain.”

So, it sounds like you are disappointed with what you're seeing tonight, is that fair?

“It isn't enough for your heart to break because everybody's heart is broken now.”

Um, okay. Well, thanks, Allen. We appreciate your insight and I understand we'll be back to you later in our broadcast after this short break.
