The debate is just now over and I wanted to make a quick post about it.

1. Six. That's how many times Kerry mentioned his service in Vietnam. If you'll look a my post about the drinking game, someone who didn't have the man marbles to leave his real name or e-mail address predicted that Bush would mention 9/11 over and over. One time is all I counted. I didn't have a pop, but I had some juice. It was bad juice at that. I'm truly surprised that he didn't talk about it more.

2. I hate to admit it, but I think Kerry won. I'm also ashamed to admit it, but he almost had me suckered in. Bush did too many "Uh's" and made too many pauses while talking. Neither one made any major screw-ups or even had any lines that will live on over time. Bush just got frustrated too many times. But I can completely understand that. Only 90 seconds to try and combat all the lies Kerry told while talking just isn't enough. How the voters will read all this is something I just can't predict, but I hope they think Bush won. I'm listening to the pundits right now, and they're saying that Kerry was just as good as Bush. According to them, Kerry had to win hands down to help himself. I don't know, but I don't feel good about this. I think Kerry help himself.

3. Kerry kept trying to hammer home the lie that he's had only one position on Iraq. I wonder if the undecides will buy into that?

Over all, very boring. Just like I knew it would be. I shocked that Kerry was able to keep it together and keep his talking under the time limit.
