    Seriously, some of the bed wetting here reminds me of comments I read on football fan boards after a loss:

    "the other team wanted it more"

    "they came out and punched us in the mouth and we folded"

    "we're not tough enough"

    We live in a society in which we've been conditioned to see aggression as a necessary precursor to success. R- Money was the aggressor last night, so in many folks' minds he "won."

    I call bullshit. Until someone can show me that a majority of likely voters see hyper-aggressive posturing as "presidential," I'll continue to believe that R-Money did more harm than good for himself last night.
