    Thanks for this excellent diary.
    I thought I missed all the fun but you brought it alive for me.
    Way to go, ECB!
    Sounds to me like this one is already in the win column.
    One down, 24 more to go.
    Thanks again,TM!

    •  Hey, JoanMar! (7+ / 0-)

      Thanks to you for the idea for this diary!

      That's to your credit.  ; )

      You also reminded me of the primary reason why this was really a huge win for ECB. Not only did she hold her own in the debate, but as the candidate with the current polling advantage, she doesn't have to debate that turd sandwich anymore. This was Sanford's last, best chance to change the momentum in the election, and he failed.

      I'm still going to work on this campaign until we get that last vote cast!

      I would tip you, but the man took away my tips.

        In his closing remarks, Sanford asked for everyone’s vote – then joked that such a request might be unrealistic. Sanford instead asked that only some, not all, of the attendees vote for him.
        Shades of Mitt Romney's 47% comment?
        Seems as if Sanford lost all his vaunted debating skills somewhere on the Appalachian Trail.

          ... article! Thanks, JoanMar! ; )

          Yes, "vaunted" is right. He seems to be really off-balance in everything he does. He just seemed to not believe in himself when he conducted the halting "debate" of Cardboard Pelosi, and that, to some extent, continued tonight.

          I would tip you, but the man took away my tips.
