Sanding our assholes with 150 grit. Slowly. Lovingly.

Presidential debate...(democratic)

It was very scripted and very free for all. I thought Obama was neutral, Edwards was a winner, Clinton (I cant see why anyone would vote for her, she is so scripted), Bill Richardson seems like a winner but he wont win.

My thoughts.

"scripted" but also a "free for all"?  I don't understand that.

Still, I'm glad Edwards got some traction.  I don't mind him being the 'stealth' candidate, while Hillary and Obama catch all the early flak.  But he's GOT to have some substance in his platform by August 2008 or we're in serious trouble.

"It was very scripted and very free for all."  I meant their responses seemed prepared and they were basically given free reign to give speeches.

Edwards always seem like he is high or something.  He is a cool guy, I will give him that.

And I am anti-Hillary (I am sorry, I am)

Richardson sounds good, but I agree that he's too principled for the typical US voter.

Who knows, we might get lucky and he gets the nomination.

Well of COURSE you are.  Did you think that was going to surprise anyone?

I understand you want to be a Republican, but how long are you going to keep looking for validation for that around here?  I don't think it's going to happen.

How can I be a republican if I want and think Obama could potentially win.

I don't know, have you ever actually stated that here?

Maybe it's a black thing?

Because you're delusional.  And your delusion serves the Republican party.  Simple!

First off.  Even if I said I was in the Republican party.  It isn't a bad thing.  There are only two major parties.  I am sure there are other people in the US who are in the Republican party.  You know, party system, difference of ideas....good.

Secon off. I do more to support the democratic party by pointing out flaws in the far-left wing compared to that of more centrist life myself.  The dems should move to the center, kind of in the spirit of JFK.

Yes, there are others in the GOP.  No, it's not a good thing.  If there was a conservative party it would be ok for people to be members of that, though.

I didn't say you were a member, I said you WANT to be.  Every one of your posts comes across (to me) as weak-ass support for them because you don't want to get dog-piled like Philo.  You know they're bad but really wish it was acceptable to support them.


"Secon off. I do more to support the democratic party by pointing out flaws in the far-left wing compared to that of more centrist life myself.  The dems should move to the center, kind of in the spirit of JFK."

I'm not sure how you think that helps anything, but I don't remember you actually doing it, so whatever. 

The dems can't move to the center because they don't stand for ANYTHING.  Some people think they do because the right attributes strawman arguments to them or says they're GOING to do things they never do, but they're really just collecting their fat checks and hoping their platform of "hey, we used to be the non-racist party 40 years ago!" keeps them afloat a little longer.
