More on the debate...

I’ve avoided linking to dozens of blog discussions about the debate. I’m not sure how helpful they are, and they are easy enough to find if you are interested. I do want to link to Jay Nordlinger, however, because as I read his piece I was simply saying, “Yep, yep, and yep.” He thinks what I think—that had he come to the debate knowing nothing about either man, he would be voting for Kerry.

I still think Bush will win comfortably, because the debates do not exist in a vacuum, but I was disappointed with his showing in the first one. I hope he can get it together for the remaining two, because I think he’s a good man, and I hate to see a good man diminished. I’m expecting Cheney to win his debate on Tuesday. Maybe that will brighten my spirits.
