The VP Debate
Overall Edwards looked very strong against not-my-Vice-President Cheney. I'm going to focus on the after-debate "analysis."
Not surprisingly, the Fox propaganda Network boys were themselves. I notice a couple revealing things. First, Fred Barnes finally admitted that Bush got trounced last Thursday (tonight he referred to "Bush's poor performance last Thursday"); after the first Kerry/Bush debate, Barnes called it a draw. Tonight, Barnes said that Cheney won on foreign policy but Edwards on domestic policy. The other Beltway Boy, Morton Kondracke didn't elaborate but said that Edwards was like a "dog yapping at a grownup's heels." Kondracke, like Barnes, initially called the first Kerry/Bush debate a draw but now apparently is facing reality. Send Kondracke a message by clicking here. If you really want to send a message, after you hit the "submit" button, hit the back button and send it again. You can do this many times. If enough people do this, it will fill Kondracke's mailbox and really piss him off. Trust me it will. So far, I've sent over twenty messages and will send more.
On The Angry Irish Ape-Man and Colmes Show, Sean Hannity questioned a Kerry spokesman. The spokesman did okay but should have caught Hannity on his lie that Kerry was flipfloping about Iraq. Hannity used the false GOP talking point that Kerry declared himself the anti-war candidate. To read a good analysis of this lie, click here.
Note to Chris Matthews: don't wear a sweater with a suit and tie--especially the sweater you were wearing tonight (apologies to Matthews' mother in case she gave him the sweater). Disclosure: I don't own any sweaters.
