The grapple in the apple responses

In case any of you wonderd, I thought Hitchens won the debate with Galloway hands down, while Galloway won the "I can shout louder than you and insult you personally" award for the night. My granny always said that people with the loudest voices usually have the weakest argument, and I believe that to be true. She is a wise lady. However, you don't have to take my word for it: the web consesnus shown in this round-up showed Hitchens winning. At the same time, some people on the left are starting to get seriously uncomfortable with gorgous George being their new star and representitive. I am glad some of them are actually thinking. I was worried there for a bit after the support that Mother Sheehan received from them. You know? UPDATE: Here is the full transcript of the debate. Enjoy and make your own judgments!

I gotta have one of these..."The Fusion will also be available in a power version and features a micro-chip that regulates the voltage and blade action. Other high-tech features include a low battery indicator light and a safety switch that shuts the razor down after eight minutes of continuous operation."

Now if only I can find a sweet nubile (of legal age, of course) girl who is willing to shave an ol' geezer who has evil intent (but sadly not the ability anymore).

Hey, Viagra has it's limits you know, its not exactly a miracle drug.

Well, either I'm still drunk from last night or blogger is playing tricks with me.

This post of course was to go to the razor thread.

But, you knew that.

Ok, the debate.

First this was a fixed fight. the audience was stacked, stuffed and bussed in with slobbering, drooling and rabid far, far, lefties who wanted no more than blood on the podium and streaming onto the floor.

I will let you guess whos blood.

Hitchens seemed restrained and too civilized to me. I suspect that he had made the mistake of not belting back a few before the debate. His mistake.

Overall, it was a farce, but a farce with good points brought up and stirred around into a mess that even SM will have trouble picking the good bits out of.

But, such is the debate beween "those that care enough to send the very best."

It is silly if the left is worried about Galloway, Sheehan, Moore...etc... they represent the argument of the left perfectly. They are all insane and can never be trusted with this country again. They have now shown their true faces, middle America has seen it, it is too late for them now.

Galloway is such a pain in the ass. But on a rhetorical level, he's way better than Hitchins. If it means that he shouted louder than him.

I have to think it was a loud wake-up call to the Left to put its house in order. I’m sure rational lefties were horrified at the nihilistic, angry and power-hungry displays of the audience. Hitch was right, “You will regret your actions.” Who could support the thugs blowing up the helpless and then argue it was justifiable? These people don’t care for anything or anyone but want the power they see as robbed from them and now out of their grasp. It is not good. This does remind one of pre-Hilter Germany, in many ways, with so many angry and disaffected. But Hitchens, these people don’t belong in a zoo, they need medication and therapy!

The Right is not without fault either. It too has senselessly provoked many times unnecessarily. Now we reap what it has sown and the Left so idly nurtured. Invoking the famous Reagan question, “Are you any better off” with a decade of a Republican-controlled Congress and six years of a Republican President?

Both parties have lotsa explainin’ to do!

Mike hit every point squarly on the head.

The lazy beer drinking, pickup driving, bbq crowd of American's are starting to get a lot upset with the Congress and the Administration in these here United States.

And not too damn happy with their State people either.

I think them pol-i-ticians are going to get some big surprises when they try and get re-elected.

All of them.
