That Debate Thang

Hehe, well if Gore isn't making an asshole of himself, I dunno who is. And Bush knows it. Actually he's milking it. At one point Bush said something to which Gore just had to respond, even if it meant speaking out of turn against the rules. I have a feeling Bush did that on purpose just because he knew Gore would make a fool of himself that way, because right after Gore jumped in with his response, I saw Bush give a wink to somebody offstage, as if to high-five them for his successful execution of a casual plan to capitalize off of Gore's fault.

Maybe the wink was for something else entirely and there was no such plan (at least on such a specific level) but that doesn't negate the fact that Gore kept speaking out of turn and beyond time limits throughout the debate while Bush kept his nonconformity in sensible moderation.

I especially liked Bush's closing statement: "If you vote for me, I appreciate your support. If you vote for him, please only vote once." :)

There are other folks running, ya know ;-)

Well of course I'm not basing my voting decision on this debate alone. I was just reacting to the debate.

I do wish the other candidates would be more visible though. I didn't even know about Nader until a week or two ago. And even now, I don't know anything about him. I've just seen the phrase "Vote Nader" all over the place with no information about who it is. The guy could be a neo-nazi for all I know, and that's not fair.

Who else is running?
