Hmmm. I think the spin over nothing spectacular is going to sicken us all before this is over.
I have a lot of opinions about the debate tonight but from talking to some people and reading a lot of spin and first impression analysis I think it is impossible to tell yet how the country really absorbed the candidates tonight.
I think the transcript
(from Jonah, at the Corner) makes Bush look a whole lot better than the cameras did. The fact that I went in to this agreeing with Bush means I was making his arguments for him in my head. I think that is true for almost every conservative out there, and accounts for the noise of disappointment.
But Bush kept it simple knowing you guys would make his point better. Get to the transcripts and see...Bush didn't dazzle the camera but I think the worst you can say is it was a draw. That's a lot worse than Kerry needed tonight.
