RE: and the winner of 1st debate is......?
Having been generally unimpressed with either of these two, I listened attentively tonight. I have to say that Kerry was impressive, and Bush was dissapointing.
Bush is the President, and he looked and sounded more like a challenger. He did manage a few reasonable points, but generally was outmatched intellectually. Every time I listen to him, which I always try to do, I hope for... well, something hopefull. He came across miserably, and I do not believe he was able to perpetuate his beer-budy likeability that is supposedly his strong suit.
Most of the after-buzz I've seen has repos and dems alike rather admitting to these points, and I'm hoping that the electorate was tuned in to see just how clear a choice they have in November.
CNN had a cartoonist and author on around 1am during their 'the contrarian' bit. He called out the media for ignoring the elephant in the room in that Bush is an embarassing, stupid man who is not fit to be president. The anchor seemed rather shocked... and they quickly ushered the guy away.
I think that it is not an elephant in the room, but rather something more like the 'emperor's new clothes'. Tonight, I think Bush was exposed naked in front of all of America, and those who have been reluctant supporters are going to finally be fed up with the farce.... time will tell.
