  •  More evidence. Election over. (4.00)
    Check out this video from the News Hour.  Edwards is standing right there in front of Cheney on the Senate floor.  Can you say pathological?  What a hoot!


    LIAR!

    I mean wasn't Edward's entire strategy to make Cheney look like he isn't honest.  Thanks, Dick.

      Some idiot at redstate put a "who do you think won poll in his diary?"  Let's show our dominance over these losers.

      Freak out losers here.

                DEBATE WIN/LOSS _ A BETTER IDEA

                The best instant reaction from tonight's debate comes from a gentleman with whom I find little political agreement, as a rule. David Franke writes,

                    "My immediate reaction to the vice presidential candidates' debate tonight, October 5: Let's reverse our two party's slates! Let's vote for vice president, not president. Both vice presidential candidates tonight proved themselves immeasurably more literate, thoughtful, and competent on the issues than the head of their tickets."

                True enough. Even though I have to say that Dick Cheney beat John Edwards like a cheap rug - David's right. I'd much rather see three or four more contests between these two than their respective presidential nominees.

                Concise version - even the Republicans believe Kerry would make a better Commander In Chief.

                Priceless.

                (O/T - There's a Honda ad on in the UK right now, with a catchy little song sung in a Leonard Cohen stylee. It's about clean diesel engines, but it applies to Bush too.. it goes

                Keep it up, folks, you're doing a tremendous job.

              •  reds make a comeback (none)
                just like the economy - the poll at redstate is "improving"

                Cheney now has 3 votes.   a 300% INCREASE from last night - they've turned the corner.

                er...nevermind those 330 votes for that Edwards fella.  Deficits don't matter.

                The vaunted gop online machine can't even freep a redstate poll.
                hysterical.

                362 to 3.

                Do you realize that's the best he's done outside of Tulsa and FAUX?  I think the final post-debate shots of Johnny hugging his children while the arteriosclerotic gelatinous bag of bones next to him continued to grumble about terrorism is going to stay in peoples' minds for some time to come.

        From the Record

          The VICE PRESIDENT. The clerk will call the names of the next group of Senators.

           The legislative clerk called the names of Mr. Cornyn of Texas, Mr. Craig of Idaho, Mrs. Dole of North Carolina, and Mr. Domenici of New Mexico.

           These Senators, escorted by Mrs. Hutchison, Mr. Crapo, Mr. Edwards, former Senator Dole, and Mr. Bingaman, respectively, advanced to the desk of the Vice President, the oath prescribed by law was administered to them by the Vice President, and they severally subscribed to the oath in the Official Oath Book.

           The VICE PRESIDENT. Congratulations.

        •  So the meme (none)
          developed overnight while I slept that Cheney is a lying sack of horse manure.  Take all the debate points you want and dissect them this way and that, the issue seems to be that Cheney tried to gain points on the blatant lie that he and Edwards had never met.  

          Incontrovertibly contrary to fact: a symbol of all the lies that Cheney spoke during the debate.

          There were some immensely wonderful sneers during the debate by the Frothy Mouthed Baby Masticator.  I hope photos will start to crop up of those.

    •  Nauseating (none)
      Cheney's whole thrust is being described this morning on NPR as an assault on John Kerry's character, that JK is not consistent nor credible enough to be the Commander in Chief. Well, in light of Cheney's blatent lies and contradictions - that dog won't hunt.

      How can the bobbleheads continue to call this sham a viable candidate and the debate a draw??
