AMERICAblog: Because a great nation deserves the truth

Americablog has done such a great job of post debate coverage. I have to refer you to their entire blog, not just one post. Check out everything they've posted tonight. They've got great stuff. Cheers to them for all their wonderful coverage. Thanks guys!!!

Here's a taste of Americablog's coverage of the debate coverage(smile)
Most of you know the National Review is a right-wing rag. Here's what they had to say about the debate:

National Review SLAMS Bush!

Read it and weep, baby:

I thought Kerry did very, very well; and I thought Bush did poorly — much worse than he is capable of doing. Listen: If I were just a normal guy — not Joe Political Junkie — I would vote for Kerry. On the basis of that debate, I would. If I were just a normal, fairly conservative, war-supporting guy: I would vote for Kerry. On the basis of that debate.
And I promise you that no one wants this president reelected more than I. I think that he may want it less.
Let me phrase one more time what I wish to say: If I didn't know anything — were a political naïf, being introduced to the two candidates for the first time — I would vote for Kerry. Based on that infernal debate....

Friends, I have no doubt that this little reaction column of mine will disappoint many of you. I'm sorry. I have called George W. Bush a Rushmore-level president. I believe history will bear that out; and if it doesn't, history will be wrong. I think that Bush's reelection is crucial not only to this country but to the world at large. I not only think that Bush is the right man for the job; I have a deep fondness — love, really — for the man, though I don't know him.
But tonight (I am writing immediately post-debate) did not show him at his best. Not at all. He will do better — I feel certain — in subsequent debates. I also worry that they count less.

When Bush's own people can see how badly he performed, despite their over-arching desire to ignore reality and pretend everything is hunky dori, the man is in trouble. At least I hope. It's in the hands of the American people now. A few broken election laws aside(Florida)
