of bloggers saying that dick won the debate last night.
its true that compared to the president, cheney looks like a rocket scientist (which is why kerry cant wait for the next debate, or the election for that matter),
but that doesn’t mean that he won anything last night, especially when he passed during the second part of the gay amendment dialogue
spectacularly symbolizing today’s brand of
conservatism liar’s poker.
im not sure, but i always thought that the purpose of debates was to explain your beliefs and how they are different than your opponent’s. Particularly concerning lil things like proposed constitutional amendments.
but you know what they say about opinions so here are a few pesky facts.
“Now, in my capacity as vice president, I am the president of Senate, the presiding officer. I’m up in the Senate most Tuesdays when they’re in session. The first time I ever met you was when you walked on the stage tonight,” the veep said while trying to dress down edwards on his senate record this evening.
The picture above says otherwise.
Infact according to the AP, the pair had met twice before the debates.
I know, I know… details details.
After Edwards criticized the bush administration and the veep for linking iraq with 9/11, cheney rebutted thusly:
“The Senator has his facts wrong. I have not suggested that theres a connection between Iraq and the 9/11…”
However on 9/14/2003 on Meet the Press dick said this when asked to define success in Iraq:
If were successful in Iraq, if we can stand up a good representative government in Iraq, that secures the region so that it never again becomes a threat to its neighbors or to the United States, so its not pursuing weapons of mass destruction, so that its not a safe haven for terrorists, now we will have struck a major blow right at the heart of the base, if you will, the geographic base of the terrorists who have had us under assault now for many years, but most especially on 9/11.
now i might just be one of the many daily show stoned slackers but that sure sounds like a suggestion of a connection between iraq and the 9/11 to me.
but the saddest moment was when cheney asked viewers to go to “FactCheck.com” so they could, well, fact check the young senator. factcheck.com, however, is the George Soros-funded anti-Bush site that is now being re-directed to Soros’s homepage
whose main headline currently reads
“President Bush is endangering our safety, hurting our vital interests, and undermining American values.”
way to win a debate, dick.
the brains on the ticket.
what the vice president obviously meant to lead millions of web-surfing americans in search of fact checking peoples asses to was the non-profit FactCheck.org, which at this time (4:20am PST) has a half dozen headlines on its page, which corrects bush, cheney, kerry & edwards, but mostly bush. not really a web site karl rove would want the veep to steer america.
ah the elderly trying to stay hip with their aol accounts.
keep logging on, mr. cheney. youve got mail!
see you at whitehouse.com ;)
maybe the blogfather was watching a different debate, and/or linking to people who, i dont know, drink a lot?
hopefully they were too tipsy to listen clearly when Edwards dropped the m-bomb: the fact that Cheney voted against the 1986 resolution calling for the release of Nelson Mandella.
a knock-out blow,
UPDATE: Indy has been uncharacteristicly silent this morning regarding last night’s debate. updating only his final post of last night to include links to republicans who have the nads to imply that although the vp and sen. edwards rubbed asscheeks together in the picture above at an event where cheney mentioned edwards by name that it does not mean that they actually met. it all, apparently, depends on what your definition of “met” means.
keep squirming, fellas.
