Heck, the thing I liked least about Ryan's performance tonight was his closing statement, that was overly memorized, dry, and primed for a 2 A.M. infomercial. (I may be a harsh judge, I debated for four years in high school.)
I agree with your conclusion, however, for all intents and purposes, this one was a tie.
