bring on the veeps
Assuming nothing comes up, I'm going to make another attempt at live blogging tonite during the debates. I didnt' for the last one, and I regret it because by the time I finally sat down to say what I had to say, I couldn't remember what it was.

I've actually been looking forward to this one for a while. Personally, I don't think either of the presidential candidates are particularly good speakers; Kerry sounds like a babbling patrician prick and Bush sounds like an idiot. (Unfortunatly for use rightie, Kerry more or less got his stylistic shortcomings under control, whereas Bush seemed to actually get somehow worse.)

On the other hand, Edwards and Cheney cut their rhetorical teeth in courtrooms and boardrooms, some of the toughest forums out there. They both have talent, and neither one of them is going to get taken by the other. Also, they have totally different styles; the silver-tounged lawyer and the agressive, experienced CEO.

Assuming, of course, they both stay on point and on their game. Part of the fun of this is that either one could crap in their hat and start mumbling about bunnies or halliburton or start screaming obscenities at their opponent or something. Which would also be fun.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
