      I remember seeing that and laughing at the time, in my ignorance.

      Then, I saw the interview in 99 with Lehrer and read about who James Stockdale was, and was ashamed for my ignorance.

      Sometimes things we laugh at turn out to be wrong.

        Go back and look at the tape of Stockdale's awful debate performance, of which Hartman's performance was a near-perfect copy.

        Of course Stockdale was a very accomplished man, which is why Ross P picked him in the first place.  But he was one lousy candidate.

        I am really enjoying my stimulus package.
