it was actually not a classic debate in the sense that it was one that was going to be memorable. <br><br>here's the line: <blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>. . . I want to speak for a second, if I can, to what the president said about fiscal responsibility.<br><br>Being lectured by the president on fiscal responsibility is a little bit like Tony Soprano talking to me about law and order in this country.<br><br>(LAUGHTER)<p><hr></blockquote><p><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato
I thought it was the most boring of them all, including the v-ps. Nothing new, really--move on.<br><br>Bush was more controlled than in the town-hall debate, where he was shrill as a shrike (no idea how shrill shrikes are, mind you, but the alliteration works for me). And as he said, Laura did a good job telling him to stand up straight and stop scowling. He was also pretty eloquent on the religious stuff--and to me therefore frightening. I thought he came within an inch of implying that he is a divine agent spreading "freedom" around the world. Maybe he is, I won't deny the possibility--but to think so is a real problem.<br><br>I thought Kerry (and Bush too) repeated every point that he's made before. Boring. He missed an opportunity to emphasize Bush's divisiveness when Bush made reference to Kerry's being a Massachusetts senator. Is the implication that Massachusetts, perhaps all of New England, and maybe even all of the Northeast, is to be suspected? They all are different up there, you know--must be all that Nor'easter wind. So also flat.<br><br>

Okay, that's funny enough - but meaningless. I think for points on appearance, Bush's sacarstic grinning 'moments of disbelief' before responding to Kerry's answers got old the second time, but he kept doing it the whole night.<br><br>Overall, Kerry looked more presidential than the president With so many questions asked about faith, I think Kerry won those points too. That's going to count for some votes.<br><br><br><br>
