Debating the Debate in Philly

Posted by Ryan on April 17, 2008

The Democrat debate last night in Philadelphia was the closest the Dems will ever get to the kinds of questions Fox News would have given them in this election cycle  — addressing issues of character, history, and other vetting issues.  Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopolous are feeling the pain for going against the MSM’s Leftist talking-points by taking it to Obama in a way no MSM venue has — directly, forcefully and persistently. 

Some pundits are cheering ABC, some are panning them.  I’d like the candidates to have a time-keeper and just let the candidates have a dialogue for an hour on whatever comes up.

Anyway, I didn’t watch the debate, I’m a “Ghost Hunters” fan on Wednesdays, so the 468th Dem debate lost to a spooky EVP caught at Mt. Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, NH.  Nonetheless, I’ve seen the highlights, I’ve heard the spin, I’ve read the meat and potatoes and have come to the conclusion that both of the Dems had a weak night and are beatable in the Fall.  Obama has character/issue/experience fallibilities and reacts too slow, and She Who Must Not Be Named has made too many gaffes that the Republicans will exploit with glee and there would be no greater fundraising device for Republicans than a SWMNBN general-election candidacy. 

At the end of the day, I don’t think the polls will change and the cards will fall as they were apt to anyway.  Like many things with the Dems there was a lot of empty talk, a bit of mudslinging, plenty of promises and nothing changes.

Rev. Wright Still “Stuck on Stupid”

Posted by Ryan on April 17, 2008

I know this story’s a little bit old, however, while cheering the Dem Debate last night, I heard Imus this morning picking on Fox News, specifically O’Reilly and Hannity, using the recent phrase uttered by Obama’s reverend, Jeremiah Wright, at one of Wright’s friend’s funeral that O’Reilly and Hannity were both “forever stuck on stupid.” 

Nice try, Reverend Wright, but give credit where credit’s due!

We all know “stuck on stupid” was a brilliant quip uttered by the straight-talking General Russel Honore in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, knocking the MSM for asking ridiculous questions:

Note to friends: please don’t knock Fox News at my funeral service — it’s kind of tacky and inappropriate.
