I metaphor John wouldn't like


[Kerry] acknowledged that some voters question whether it's prudent, in the middle of a war, to ''change horses in midstream,'' but said, ``When your horse is heading down toward the waterfall, or when your horse is drowning, it's a good time to change horses in midstream.''

Unless your horse converts into a hang glider, then you swoop away with the secret plans and go score with the spy babe. D'oh!

The six-foot-four-inch candidate added: ``May I also suggest that we need a taller horse. You can get through deeper waters that way.''

Anyone live near a 7' deep stream? Just in case.

It's amazing how the press is going on and on about how Kerry "won" the debate.

Not much about what he actually said, just how well he said it.

You are correct, Doug. Kerry, as president, would put the US in deeper water than we are.

Any advise for Bush in second debate?

Suggestions for Bush... maybe "Don't let any press see it". That's it, really. He could have nailed a couple of Kerry's positions much better in the first one, but I don't really think it matters if he does better on substance in the second or not - the papers will say he got killed, and the polls will follow the papers.

I thought he won the last one - but then again I was hearing the positions I wanted to hear from him, so my judgement was probably a bit skewed. Most commentators and a snap poll called it a draw. After a few days of press talking about Bush's non-debate performance [scowling, smirking, frowning - they have no idea really, they just know it didn't look good for Bush], and gradually more insistant declarations of Kerry victory, all of a sudden we have polls showing Kerry as a 3:1 winner. I guess that's because they're polling two kinds of people - honest folks, and Democrats.

Well, I think the President, while he is gathering his thoughts and preparing to answer, should leave his mouth closed.
