3 losers, 1 winner

From Mish on the debate

Careful analysis shows both Obama and McCain lost the debate. Last night I surmised that the country won because they could see how pathetic both candidates really are. Today, I change my mind on that. Most likely the country is going to think whoever they were for somehow “won” the debate. In the end, the country lost because neither of these candidates deserves to be president.
… For the first time in history, I am proclaiming a moderator to be the winner of the debate. Jim Lehrer asked very good, pointed questions that neither candidate would answer. Better yet, he forcibly kept at it, attempting to no avail to get some answers on the economy.

Doonesbury on Palin

When Sarah Palin was picked as the GOP VP candidate, there was plenty of hay that was made about how the Democrats will have to bite their tongue’s in declaring her without experience… otherwise the same criticism would apply to Obama as well…

I call BS… the democrats don’t have to say anything. They just have to point out that the Republicans have already tarnished her lack of experience with their own words.

A little modesty would help greatly in this context… Imagine Biden saying in his abrasive way, “Well, I don’t have anything against Sara Palin’s experience, but have you heard what the Republicans say about someone with as little experience as her? Seems a bit hypocritical to me…”
