Well, we watched "the debate" last night. It seemed to be misnamed. It wasn't a debate, really, but rather an opportunity for the interrogators to bring up all of the media frenzy tidbits (truth about peril during Bosnia landing, why can't you control your pastor, that kind of thing). It was pretty much a waste of time, as the candidates really did not get to explore their differences on many meaty issues.
I was really peeved by the question that was patched in from a righteous (and perhaps bitter!) Pennsylvania Woman Of A Certain Age, who suggested that perhaps Senator Obama was not proud of the American flag because he didn't wear one.
Is it just me? Or did anyone hear that question put to Senator Clinton as well -- she wasn't wearing an American flag pin either?
I consider myself a political novice (and Andrew would prolly be the first to applaud that assessment), but at least I'm not planning to choose my candidate on the basis of his or her jewelry.
Oh, and completely off topic but noteworthy nonetheless, the Queen of Issues yesterday was whining about the unhealhy food selections in the campaign office shortly before the entree du jour was scheduled to arrive. When offered a jello cup, she indignantly replied, "I'm a vegetarian! I'm not going to eat that!"
