No, I didn't see the debate
I was in class. That's right, I teach a night class. Biggest TV event of the year and I'm teaching class!! I mean, this is bigger than the new season of Chappelle and here I am stuck talking about a debate that I haven't even seen yet. Life sucks sometimes.
I hope you taped c-span.

Where on earth did they get him from?
The fella would make winning the lottery sound tedious.
That guy needs to liven up a bit before he starts to go in reverse.

Very fun. Particularly Fraters Libertas.
And it's more than just fun, of course, since I really don't have much patience for either candidate's speaking style. It's a sanity saver.

gosh, I hate that man. Go see JT's insight at wizbang. You'll enjoy it, except after that interview above, I'd be so damn angry, I would not be able to write again for awhile.

It is easy in retrospect to see the ones that turned out wrong and concentrate your attack on those issues.
The question is, what would Kerry have done faced with the events of 9/11?
Not what he says he would have done NOW, but what would he have done THEN.
We'll never know and he'll never know.
He talks about the days when he fought for his country to the point of boredom. Now he appears to be fighting against it.
By all accounts, one of the roles of Government is to protect its people from foreign invasion. 9/11 was devastating and unprecedented.
No American could have fore-seen it but once it happened it takes resolve to ensure it never happens again.
Bush is your man.

Kerry as a President would be the biggest mistake this country could ever make. So I must disagree with your comments regarding President Bush's manner during this debate.

Bushes peformance was cretinous. He stood there like a poor defence less animal blinded by the light. Just because he was quiet and nervous doesn't make him sincere, it confirms his inability to articulate under pressure, kind of important for a President, would you not say? With a bit of luck in the forthcoming election, Bush will be retired, Kerry will be President and perhaps the US's credibility will be restored somewhat. Believe me, no rational person, either in America or across the world wants a complete tosser like Bush returned to office.
