Watched a little bit of the Presidental debate last night and was not impressed. I can’t believe that people actually make up their minds based on these things. Stage managed, sound bite laden photo opportunities that do little to show exactly what the two men are made of or what they would really do if given the job. Of course, we know what Shrub will do if re-elected. Go to war with Iran to hide the fact that the American economy is in bad shape and more and more children are going to bed hungry.
John Kerry is an unknown and I didn’t see much to focus the picture. He’s intelligent but stiff and I don’t really see clear indication of what he would do to improve the lot of the people in the US or Iraq.
I’m Canadian so I don’t have any say in November but I sure as hell have a stake in the outcome. Scary stuff.
