While watching the vice-presidential debate:
1st view: Cheney is an asshole. There is no real surprise there; he's been an asshole for some time.
2nd point: Sen Edwards broke into one homily. (so far.) Cheney responded with a SAVAGE attack on John Edwards. Personally. I didn't feel the heat, as I did with Zell... but I *did* think (as McCain said on the Daily Show) that Kerry/Edwards must have done kilt Cheney's dog.
3rd point: the Israel question was a mistake, and allowed them to go on the ATTACK.
Fascinating, so far.
