GOP Foreign Policy Debate: The Best Moments and New Memes

There were a few stories of the night emerging from CNN''s foreign policy debate between the GOP candidates, from light memes to serious questions.

From the Candidates: Rick Santorum coming out in favor of racially profiling Muslims and declaring Africa to be a "a country," Herman Cain calling Wolf Blitzer "Blitz" and over-emphasizing the fact that Iran is mountainous in discussing whether or not he'd suport Israel's strikes against the nation, Mitt Romney lying about the fact that Mitt is his first name--and perhaps most importantly current front-runner Newt Gingrich coming out in support of limited amnesty for undocumented immigrants which has a sliver of humane compasison that might risk his newfound popularity. 

Other strange highlights: technical glitches from the CNN team and a host of prominent neocons with failed policies like Paul Wolfowitz coming to the front of the room to ask questions of the candidates.

Our own Adele Stan was tweeting the debate.
