The reason I haven’t posted thoughts on the debate is that I haven’t watched it yet. I was busy last night with Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, which I thought was a sufficient excuse. However, I’ll be watching the debates later today (probably) and any comments I have I’ll make then. Of course, it’s not as if tons of other people aren’t essaying this topic in their own blogs. The general consensus seems to be that Kerry came out ahead in the debate, but not too far ahead, and that Bush needs to be careful not to smirk so damn much, even when he thinks the camera isn’t on him. If that’s indeed the case, I wouldn’t be surprised.
Anyway, more on this later.
