I am not going to watch the big debate tonight. Hearing the s-o-s spew from the Liar-in-Chief would put our household televisions at too much risk. I figure I will get the fairest assessment and evaluation from the special live edition of The Daily Show following the debate.
Given the foreign policy focus, here’s some quick thoughts in advance of the big event:
- Since Bush will undoubtedly continue his pattern of lying or ignorance about Iraq, see what the WSJ’s Mideast correspondent, Farnaz Fassihi, really thinks and Christopher Dickey’s assessment of freedom’s future.
- No doubt some phony invocation of patriotism will occur in some form or another. Added to the “patriotism issue” in the Daschle-Thune race, How To Avoid Becoming Anti-American is a cute satirical piece. Spinsanity also notes the trend toward attacking dissenters.
