W finally exceeds the "Gentleman's C" in something.
The third debate was mostly recycled claptrap, except for a few revealing moments:
- Bush finally tags Kerry as a Massachusetts liberal and a do-nothing
- Bush radiates sincerity on the faith and wife questions while Kerry can't bring himself to say anything nice about Terezinha. In fact, the question puts him in mind of his mother's deathbed. Guess who's sleeping in the garage tonight.
- Bush was programmed to answer jobs question by talking about education.
- Listening to Kerry is like listening to a neighbor child practice the tuba, pace Roger Bobo. Bush, on the other hand, has adopted the persona of a cracker Alfred E Newman by way of Andover, Yale, and Harvard B-School.
As for the rest of this gabfest, been there, done that.
