No Doubt About It

Bush clearly won this one. And two moments were memorable.

I disagree with Barry, I do think there was a knockout blow in this debate. And this was it:

BUSH: In 1990, there was a vast coalition put together to run Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait. The international community, the international world said this is the right thing to do, but when it came time to authorize the use of force on the Senate floor, my opponent voted against the use of force.

Apparently you can't pass any test under his vision of the world.

Kerry seemed to have all the fire knocked out of him after that, and just limped through the rest of the debate.

The other moment was the big mistake of the three debates:

KERRY: We're all God's children, Bob. And I think if you were to talk to Dick Cheney's daughter, who is a lesbian, she would tell you that she's being who she was, she's being who she was born as.

While one could make a weak argument that Cheney's daughter had some remote relevance to the VP debate, there was no reason to bring her up tonight. Except to make certain that everyone watching would know that Cheney's daughter is a lesbian. She has not made herself a part of the campaign, and it was uncalled for. I think this one will come back to bite Kerry.


Ah, but in reading the morning papers today, you will not see any of this mentioned.

What a surprise.

I actually had to laugh when Bill Kristol was asked last night if he expected the MSM to say that bush won the debate, he said "Yes!"

Damned fool.
