Just got around to watching Meet The Press from yesterday. Viewers are treated to a debate between John Kerry (Obama surrogate) and Joe Lieberman (McCain surrogate). Two points jump out at me:
1. What the fuck is wrong with Joe Lieberman? Some sort of brain illness?? I can only hope that a more decisive democratic majority will relegate him to the shadows, where back-benchers can throw doughnuts at him...or possibly put him in some sort of dunk tank. I mean, he's seriously considering speaking at the Republican National Convention.
2. Why would Obama send Kerry on to the biggest sunday-morning stage to battle for him? I don't think I have ever heard the man say anything that wasn't prefaced with five minutes of prevarication. The guy would bring a thesaurus to a knife fight.
