"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


it takes a Texan...

Oh, the debate's on, and they're in fightin' mode, which is odd, because usually the "at-the-table" debates are much friendlier and conciliatory. Thank goodness for Bob Schieffer. Our man from Fort Worth is keeping them in line.

8:30ish - Oooh, McCain should know better than to mention the defeat of America's team. His numbers on CNN plummeted the minute he mentioned that.

8:33 - Oop! McCain's proud of the racist rednecks!

8:36 - This is getting really nasty. Which the voters Never Like.

If you're semi-debate-bored, but, like me, trying to be a responsible citizen/professor by DVR-ing the Project Runway finale and watching it anyway, here are some things to keep you awake:
  • Imagine a world with Palin as President.
  • Efforts to disenfranchise swing state voters are in full swing.
  • Evan is liveblogging the debate as per usual, this time while eating year-old wedding cake from he and T's nuptials last October. His latest conclusion? That "these two need marriage counseling."
  • The Choice 2008, which aired last night on Frontline, is a much more interesting look at the candidates and who they actually are.

Who won, Kenley or McCain? I'm going to vote Jerrell third-party.

I'm glad I didn't read this post until this morning (10/16/08). If I'd read it last night I'd have had nightmares about Palin as President. Now that I think about it, you've probably ruined tonight's sleep as well as tomorrows. Palin is a nightmare.

That site about Palin is hilarious though disturbing. Did you click on everything? Click on the door three times and be sure to click on the deer... And don't forget the red phone and bridge to nowhere.
