Slate’s John Dickerson makes a boo-boo by accidentally including Bachmann spokesperson on email. Bachmann campaign manager responds (from Facebook):

Team—This is Keith Nahigian, Michele’s campaign manager. While Michele has been onstage at tonight’s debate demonstrating strong leadership on foreign policy and national security, we received concrete evidence confirming what every conservative already knows - the liberal mainstream media elites are manipulating the Republican debates by purposely suppressing our conservative message and limiting Michele’s questions.
View the attached email by CBS News’ political director from earlier today—we need to show the liberal media elite that we won’t stand for this outrageous manipulation. Help us fight this affront by sharing this with your friends.

Of course, the comments….

Bad mistake, of course.

And like that, the debate is over. Scott Pelley cut Rick Perry off mid-answer. What, is there a Barenaked Ladies concert happening in the hall after the debate or something? There is such a thing as running too tight a ship, friends. Anyway, to look back at our coverage, hop over to our tag page, which we were nice enough to link in chronological order.

Another special guest: Jim Demint. He asked about what to cut, federal-funding wise, leading to Mitt Romney using “Obamacare” for the first time. Huntsman refers to debt spending as a national security problem, and he notes that he backs the Paul Ryan plan — which seemingly hasn’t come up in months.

And now with special guest Lindsey Graham, who asked a three-part question about terror detainee rights. Herman Cain would reverse Obama’s Gitmo plan. Santorum supported the terror policies. Ron Paul spoke passionately against the approach.

matthewkeys says: The debates are still airing on the West Coast, except for the CBS affiliates that have 6pm newscasts -- which is pretty much every CBS affiliate on the West Coast.

C’mon CBS — it’s Saturday night. A debate with eight people over 60 minutes just doesn’t work. You cut out of the debate for a repeat of NCIS. Seriously. (Note: It’s still happening online.)

Rick Perry on foreign aid: Every country starts at zero … but Israel is a “special case.”

The applause is lovely but we will not have booing.
CBS News’ Scott Pelley • Laying down the law at the debate; this is the first debate we’ve covered where a moderator has said this.

Herman Cain sees waterboarding as an “enhanced interrogation technique,” not torture, and would support it. He looks super-uncomfortable answering the question on torture. Bachmann, meanwhile, was far more comfortable on agreeing with this; Ron Paul, meanwhile, says it’s illegal, immoral and ineffective. Huntsman came out against it as well.
