John Dickerson should be fired. He is a piece of @*&!. He is a fraud and he should be fired.Michele Bachmann’s campaign manager, Keith Nahigian • Running through the spin room after last night’s debate, claiming bias against his candidate, who got relatively few questions last night. John Dickerson (CBS News’ political director and a chief political correspondent for Slate) accidentally sent an e-mail to the campaign last night, intended for CBS News staffers, that said this: “Okay let’s keep it loose though since she’s not going to get many questions and she’s nearly off the charts in the hopes that we can get someone else.” Think Bachmann got a fair shake last night?
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.
Glad you remembered it.Rick Perry • In response to the question, “You advocate the elimination of the Department of Energy …” The response earned huge laughs.
