Batting 0 For 2

What an amazing world we live in. iTunes has both the first presidential debate and the vice-presidential debate posted as free downloads. Wow. You don't even need to tape this stuff anymore. You can just download the free mp3's. Wow again.

While we wait for audio from the second debate to get posted, transcripts are already online. Here's what really caught my attention.

Both Bush and Kerry argued passionately this time - meaning that Bush appeared to have a clue this time - but Kerry had lots of facts on his side whereas Bush had mostly opinion.

Here are a few of the Kerry gems, for which Bush largely had no answer or comment.

And those were just from the first half of the debate...

Both men argued passionately - but the facts were on Kerry's side.

Here's my favorite Bush quote of the night. I literally laughed out loud:

"I hear there's rumors on the Internets that we're going to have a draft."

On the internets? There's more than one? Well shit! How do I access the others? I think I've seen all of this one already... time to move on dot org :)

Bush reminded me of Donald Duck in spazz-mode with a little Yosemite Sam thrown in for good measure. Kerry could have illustrated his positions via interpretive dance and still won the debate.

Kudos to iTunes for preserving the debates on the internets.

You know, the Internets. The Red Internet and the Blue Internet.
