debate

So was this supposed to be a foreign poicy debate, or the Iraq policy debate? There were what, 3 questions not about Iraq? And all of them focussed on Iran and North Korea. Don't we have other things to do then fight wars? Can't we talk about free trade? Or Mexican immigration? Pakistan and India? Our Cuban policy?

Listen, if there was one thing that people probably had a handle on going into this debate, it was the candidate's fucking stance on Iraq. So why the fuck did Jim Lehrer spend the entire time talking about stuff that everyone has already heard about?

Maybe it's becasue most Americans still think Iraq is full of WMDs?

I think garlic, like many of his blogging brethren, has projected his own intimate awareness of the issues onto the general population. Those people who think Yahoo! is the internet.

Get to the important stuff.  What were they wearing, and how high were the podia?

What does that mean? by Rogerborg (3.00 / 0) #5 Thu Sep 30, 2004 at 10:38:46 PM EST
Did Bush get to stand on a box, or did they just lop Lurch's feet off?

zoomed in more on bush, then adjusted angles.. by infinitera (6.00 / 1) #6 Thu Sep 30, 2004 at 10:47:03 PM EST
So that neither candidate "appeared" taller than the other. But it's not like it wasn't obvious that Kerry was, the podium was still there as a reference point. Honestly, if the Bush folks wanted to equalize that, they should've borrowed a page from LotR and given Kerry a bigger podium.

Kerry had to bend waaaaay down to reach President Tiny.
