Maybe it’s the influence of Donald Trump and his media savvy (The Art Of The Deal!), or maybe the media cartel is just collapsing under the weight of its own hubris, but the recent Colorado debate was a stunning example of pushback by the candidates.

Most of the candidates did well, but the performance by Ted Cruz was remarkable- the nation finally got a chance to see the full array of his intellectual firepower.
