Further thoughts on the debates, and blog-based reaction thereto:

Severest cognitive dissonance: the vacation president talking about how hard, how hard, how hard it truly is to do his hard, hard work.

Worst confusion: Bush wondering what "global test" Kerry was talking about for preemptive action. Kerry said what he meant: that the maintenance of future alliances, and, as someone once said, "a decent respect for the opinions of mankind", requires that you be able to offer a reasonable explanation for what you were doing afterwards. Was Bush just not listening? The Republicans seem to think that Dubya scored major points here: it might be worth asking them what they were.
