  •  Gore pitched a shutout! (9+ / 0-)

    His victory in that first debate was almost as unanimous as Rmoney's last week. Even Faux News was stunned.  With no ammunition left, almost as a throw-away question, one focus group was then asked about the sighs and slight eye rolls. Things which were barely visible or audible on TV.  Especially the non HD flatscreen TV's that most were watching on back in 2000.

    Suddenly, there was a spin.  Instead of focussing on Dumbya's 90 minutes of failure, cable TV (including Tweety on the, ahem-ahem, left) would later spend days and days counting and breaking down the amount of sighs and eye rolls.

    This time however no amount of smiles, laughs or chuckles will hide Biden's complete evisceration of Ryan.  Maybe, Biden got more slack since this was a VP debate.  Maybe, Biden got more slack b/c those smiles came from a populist voice as opposed to the stiff robotic one coming from Gore.  Maybe, the media is simply a little smarter and more focussed now.

    Whatever the case Biden won last night and it feels good knowing that he'll still be declared the winner today, tomorrow and everyday throughout his second term and beyond.  Last night will be remembered as the night Papa Joe stopped the bleeding.  Now (once again) it's time for Obama to close the deal!

    Pride-and-joy-and-greed-and-sex, that's what makes our town the best!

      ensued a rush to dog pile on to see who could outdo the others in snarky comments about Gore. It really pissed me off then, and I'm still pissed today. A Gore presidency could have saved this country 8 years of pain.
