Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

Preview to the VP Debate: Edwards thinks you're an idiot
by Bonjo

"Breck Girl" Edwards lecturing America

The media is hyping up tonight's VP debate between Dick "Big Time" Cheney and John "Breck Girl" Edwards. I've heard many media pundits talking about how Big Time has to out-perform Edwards in order to rescue the President.

As a preface to the debate, I think all Americans should watch Breck Girl's appearance last night on ABC’s "Nightline":

"I'd say if you live in the United States of America and you vote for George Bush, you've lost your mind." - Senator John Edwards, D-NC
We've heard this same rhetoric from The Ketchup Queen and other left-wing elitists: If you disagree with them, you're an idiot.

John Edwards might be a slick-talking, ambulance-chasing, jury-swaying trial lawyer. Big Time is a straight talking, no-nonsense, matter-of-fact person. He doesn't do nuance, he doesn't build a case in order to sway you one way or the other. He states the facts, and in his logical mind that should be enough for anyone with half a brain to understand.

That being said, those who watch the debate need to listen to WHAT Big Time says, not HOW he says it. Edwards will have the flashy hair, the southern drawl, and the lawyer-esque presentation. Big Time will have the truth.

I agree with you. However Dick Cheney and George Bush must be more flexible and open on how to present themselves. A lot of people vote strictly on presentation and not substance. Let's not lose just because we know we are right, and don't adjust our presentation style to be more accepting to a wider audience....you know...
Is it me? Or did Bush not say "You're with us or against us?"

Or did Cheney not suggest that voting for Kerry would bring about another attack?

OH, whats that? They did.


Seriously, both parties are guilty of ridiculous rhetoric and hypocrisy. But out comes the holier-than-though republican attitude we all know and can't stanz!

If you're going to quote W, then quote him CORRECTLY!!

He said, and I quote, "You're either with us, or with the terrorists."

Thanks for commenting.
To Anonymous #1 (in the first reply): I agree entirely. Our society is very visually-oriented, and presentation is a major factor. We learned that in the Nixon/Kennedy debate back in the late 60's.

One thing about the "substance" of the debate... Cheney's message will be plainly evident in the sound bites and clips that will inevitably be played on the nightly news for the next few days.

Cheney did remarkably well, given John Edwards' history as a trial attorney. Edwards is getting a favorable response due to his presentation at the debate. Cheney is getting a favorable response due to the content.

Who do I want sitting in the #2 spot? The guy who actually knows the facts and can lead this nation.

(However, someone does need to tell both Bush and Cheney to stop leaning on the podium/table!)
