Debate Wrapup

DEBATE WRAPUP….How is it that these guys manage to make 60 seconds seem like too long a time? Crikey.

UPDATE: Was that cryptic? Or does everyone get what I meant?

Anyway: I’m a liberal and these guys are conservatives, so it’s only natural that I’m not down with their message for America. But damn. They’re just horrible. Their answers are so cliched and regurgitated that I mostly want to cry for mercy after about 10 or 15 seconds. Rudy on healthcare was so incoherent it almost made my teeth bleed. And I guess I didn’t even hear the good part, where they all nodded along as Wolf Blitzer talked about nuking Tehran. But only with tactical nukes, so, you know, I guess that’s OK.

Somebody shoot me.
