Debate transcript

Tonight's debate in Arizona, courtesy of CNN.

I haven't watched or read it yet, so I can't comment, but boy the comment threads are hopping 'round the blogs.

Lots of people seem to think Judy Woodruff was unforgivably unprofessional. This, I gotta see.

Yeah, she got on my nerves, prancing around the stage, cutting people off.

Dean did OK...nothing stellar, and nothing bad. He and Kucinich pinned all the "voted-for-the-war-and-now-trying-to-act-like-they-didn't" guys to the wall once or twice. It was sickening to listen to Gephardt, Kerry, Lieberman, and (yes, even) Edwards try to make it sound as if they had stood up to dubya on the war...

In retrospect, I wish I had just gone to bed.
