Debate Analyses

Grand Slam by William Saletan.
I wasn't surprised when the instant polls showed Kerry winning the debate handily. I bet Bush wasn't, either. All night long he looked like a pitcher who knew his stuff wasn't working and was stuck out there, alone on the mound in front of millions of people, with no idea what to do next. Now he's given up four runs and the lead. But he's still got the home field. And he's got half an inning—the bottom of the ninth—to turn things around.

Tom Curry does his best to rehabilitate the Bush (hswib) performance. But he has to do it with what Bush (hswib) should have said instead of what actually came out of his mouth.
