Helpful -- Round 2 spin

"Battling green eyshades."

That's about all I can say about this debate. Kerry, like last time, was not perfect. He drops names in an awkward way, he takes forever to get to the question, he's kind of boring. But Bush's big "upgrade" of performance was a bump up from "bumbling idiot" to just "idiot."

Here's what I learned:
*Bush was disappointed to learn that Saddam didn't have WMD.
*He wanted give Charlie Gibson some wood. (Is that what the kids are calling it this day?)
*Bush likes to yell. A lot. He's testy.

More than anything, I was just happy that there were clear questions, and that the major differences between Bush and Kerry shown through. Whatever you think about what Kerry talks about, he wants to make things better. He has plans to change things. Bush couldn't acknowledge a single mistake he's made, except for some appointments. That's a jackass thing to say.

By the way, I'm writing this from the Christine Cegelis campaign office, so I may be a bit distracted. I decided that my lame-ass punditry is pretty worthless, so I'm calling people on Saturdays so we can get Henry Hyde out of office.

PS - as a commenter noted, I think Battling Green Eyeshades would be a kick-ass name for a band.

I thought Kerry did well again. He does take forever to get to the point and that is a bit annoying. But he kept his cool, which is more than I can say for the other guy on the stage.
