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.
