John, you ignorant slut!

It's 9:11 CDT, and I'm saying that Kerry has Bush on the run most of the night. Bush kept hitting the talking points (he was Capt. Sputter most of the night), but it didn't sound like he was engaged in the "discussion". It seemed like he was simply looking for opportunities to "plug the product", to get the message out- you even saw (and heard) him on multiple occasions jotting notes with a Sharpie, where Kerry didn't seem to be. To me, it seemed weaker to retreat into the talking points than it does to engage in the topic at hand. Bush's 'Luudes did seem to kick in right as I began this at 10 after.

Closing statements? It was interesting there how Bush mentioned all-volunteer armed forces when Kerry didn't touch it. First time I've heard the democrats own an issue for a LONG time.

It seemed to me that Kerry was working to the center, and Bush was working to his base. Obviously, the GOP thinks they have the numbers. That's a little scary, for a whole pile of reasons. One example would be the Alan Keyes debacle here in Illinois. (GOP pretty boy gets taken down by scandal, and Keyes becomes the choice after Coach Ditka.)
