What can be said of the first of the 2004 presidential debates? Bush looked every bit the moron he is. His lead in the polls has been wiped out. This is of course good news, except that the polls are all meaningless this year because they completely neglect anyone with a cell phone.
Polling is done via traditional land line phone numbers, meaning that the info is seriously flawed - but at this point, who cares?
It'll all be over in a few weeks. Then we'll learn if Americans can be fooled twice... because, as we all know, there's an old saying about fools in Texas...
