My daughter is listening to the debate in the next room even as I type this, and I wish the previous owner of this house had left the door in the doorway that separates us! What bloviation! I think I'll turn on the radio.

Yeah, what is bloviation? Is it a word from Dr. Seuss or Shel Silverstein? Does it have to do with bovines? Is it from Shakespeare? Do tell...

This second debate was a lot more mellow then the first one. The candidates seemed to agree with each other on a lot.

I wish the debate was more like a conversation on Larry King Live, however, as this still seemed a little "cold"

Sorry Izzy, I wasn't trying to be elitist, I always thought bloviation was entirely the opposite, kind of a low-interest person trying to sound important, and ending up sounding only self-important.

Yawn.
GW doesn't seem to know a country form a continent, nation
building by the by helps America keep and aide it's allies, 2 of the
murderers
of Mr. Bird are going to be put to death not all three (and is death for death
really a solution?), the hate crimes law supported by the Bird family in
Texas
did not get passed, the US is selling domestic oil to foreign countries for
profit while in the middle of a shortage, what about his dwi? the four years
he will not discuss? what about the environmental deficiencies of Texas, the
poor support of woman and children and the struggling public schools?
He is just not ready for this position.
Mr. Gore embellishes, he is not the best speaker, he is a seasoned
politician, he is clear about his past (except for the tall tails), knows the
names of
countries and their leaders. The lesser of the two evils is Gore, he had a
better handle on the debate.
Where's my poodle?
With the market correction, where is this surplus coming from? With unrest
in the middle east, where is the surplus coming from?
Don't cut my taxes, don't raise them either, just keep the roads fixed and
people healthy.
too much coffee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
