Comedy Central puts GOP debate on spin cycle

John Oliver and Larry Wilmore, correspondents for The Daily Show, attracted a growing crowd as they taped candidate interviews after the forum at historically black Morgan State University in Baltimore. Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Rep. Duncan Hunter of California and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas all submitted to questions. Some examples:

"Governor, explain to me. What is it about black votes that makes them so difficult to count?"

"Current health care plan: Wack or dope?"

"Democrats have done virtually nothing to help African-Americans for the last 40 years, but they still get 93 percent of the black vote,'' Comedy Central's correspondents noted. "My question to you is, what does that say about your party?"
