We watched the debate like it was the super bowl

We went out and got chips. We got salsa. We got cider. We regularly had to pause the debate (thanks replay tv) becuase I needed to rant. Or becaues Bush made some bizarre little face. Or we just had to hoot at his bald faced ANGER at having Kerry stand there and tell him he was wrong, tell him he made bad decisions, repeatedly say that he mislead the people of this country. He was like a pissy teenager. He was annoyed, mugging, figetty. He drank glass after glass of water. He looks like a fool. His points were circular, and honestly pointless. It's like someone gave him a list of phrases and he used them at random like magnetic poetry.

I was very disappointed in Kerry as the "only choice" candidate. I was very disappointed that he hadn't taken any opportunity to even attempt to differentiate himself from Bush. The only thig I did like about him is that back when he was a nominee for candidacy (along with the other .. what... 40. 50 of them?) he talked to Rolling Stone magazine and in the article referred to Bush as an asshole. He never retracted that statement, never apologized, and told the press he had no intention of going back on what he'd said.

Bush repeatedly said Kerry was "changing his position on the war" that he was "wishy washy" and that his "core beliefs" continued to change. Between that and his mantra of the evening "Freedom in Iraq is vital to American security" , his avoidance of EVERY question he was asked, and his obvious discomfort at being on stage in a defensive position against Kerry who was all attack right from the beginning it was *incredible*.
It really was.
I wasn't impressed with Kerry. I am now.
