I’m an Anybody But Bush voter more than a Kerry supporter, but nonetheless, of course I want Kerry to do well. I woke up yesterday morning nervous about the debates. Bush’s swagger tends to come off really well and Kerry’s intellectualism doesn’t play well in Peoria.

But Kerry opened up a can of whoop-ass on Bush. Even Fox News had to sort of admit it. Even I could imagine feeling genuinely happy to have a President Kerry.

I think Kerry’s best moment was a response to one of Bush’s many attempts to paint him as a flip-flopper:

“I made a mistake in how I talk about the war. But the president made a mistake in invading Iraq. Which is worse?”
