Dick Rocks



#1 sign that Bush-Cheney took last night's debate: CBS calls it for Edwards.

Did anyone else notice that Edwards ripped his paper while Cheney was speaking? I counted four times when Cheney was speaking, Edwards was ripping paper out of his notepad. It was very audible on C-Span.

Edwards would have served himself better last night if he had just stood on stage and took a big dump. In the end, he was slapped around like a redheaded stepchild. For the entire debate, Cheney provided a clear choice this year, while Edwards seemed lost while taking his talking points from Michael Moore. You can choose between a strong leader who stands up for America, or a couple of no-show Senators who have more positions than a dirty deck of cards.

My favorite moment of the debate: When Edwards thought he had a KO by pointing out their number that have 90% of coalition casualties as American. Edwards was so snooty and had a smirk on his face. Cheney backhanded him with the facts and Edwards was left to just shake his pretty, little head. Here's how it went down.
Silky Pony (Edwards): ...Not only that, 90 percent of the coalition casualties, Mr. Vice President, the coalition casualties, are American casualties..
CHENEY: Classic example. He won't count the sacrifice and the contribution of Iraqi allies. It's their country. They're in the fight. They're increasingly the ones out there putting their necks on the line to take back their country from the terrorists and the old regime elements that are still left. They're doing a superb job. And for you to demean their sacrifices strikes me as... EDWARDS: Oh, I'm not...
CHENEY: ... as beyond...
EDWARDS: I'm not demeaning...
CHENEY: It is indeed. You suggested...
EDWARDS: No, sir, I did not...
CHENEY: ... somehow they shouldn't count, because you want to be able to say that the Americans are taking 90 percent of the sacrifice. You cannot succeed in this effort if you're not willing to recognize the enormous contribution the Iraqis are increasingly making to their own future. We'll win when they take on responsibility for governance, which they're doing, and when the take on responsibility for their own security, which they increasingly are doing.
