You know the CNBC debate was pretty terrible last night when even liberals are blasting them for it. I think the only people who think the moderators weren’t bitterly partisan work for MSNBC or Salon.com. Though not all of them…
Joe Scarborough says John Harwood's first debate question was horrible. Not covering for the home team

However, because of clouds and silver linings, it did have a few moments where candidates had a chance to shine. In case you were falling asleep to the World Series instead, here are the top 5 moments you need to see.
1. We discussed Ted Cruz last night, but it was soooooo good…
Here’s how on point he was…he had liberal celebrities agreeing with him:
oh my god did i just hear Ted Cruz say something awesome that i agree with? Yes. The media is even stupider than the pols. Who's on first?

I hate Ted Cruz with the power of a million chainsaws revving but I agree with everything he just said. #GOPDebate

2. John Harwood gets caught in a lie
There’s only two problems there, Skippy:

CORRECTING earlier tweet: Tax Foundation says Rubio benefits lowest 10% proportionally more (55.9) than top 1% (27.9%). Avg for all: 17.8%.

3. Chris Christie
“Rude even for New Jersey.” Seriously dude, that’s bad. This is the state that’s bred Diva Springsteen, Kevin Smith and throws raw sewage at its citizens with reckless abandon. Seriously, look it up. No, I have no source.
4. The Democrat Super PAC
Marco Rubio again. And see, this is why even liberals had to admit the moderators were bad. The candidates didn’t just complain about the mainstream media, they drew specific examples. That’s the pivotal difference between whining and winning.
5. Let’s go right to the John Harwood Mega Mix.
CNBC didn’t even bother with their own post-debate coverage, and instead switched to one of their TV shows no one watches. By the end of it, they were out on their feet.
