      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.


      (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

      Hate something.
      Change something.
      Hate something, change something, make something BETTER).

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

      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.

      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.

      Poland? Heck, Bush can't even remember the goddam ALAMO!
