A Little Girl on Girl Action
I have yet to talk to anyone that watched any of the Vice Presidential debate. But, apparently lots of Americans did as the overnight ratings indicate that nearly 44 million people watched it. That still pales in comparison to the 62.5 million viewers the first Kerry/Bush debate garnered.
But you know what? Those ratings are nothing compared to what a Teresa Heinz Kerry/Laura Bush debate would bring in. Could you imagine? People would love that debate. Sure, it's even more irrelevant than a VP debate, but who cares? Americans (especially those of us in battleground states) have to sit through horrible political ads, phone call after phone call from the candidates or their celebrity surrogates and random hippies knocking on our doors with liberal literature. After putting up with all of that we deserve something and I can think of nothing better than a First Lady Showdown. It it denerates into a catfight all the better.
It's clear the mainstream media has no intention of providing thoughtful, objective, or even truthful, coverage of this election. The least they can do is entertain us instead.

I'm in the Philly market, so I know all about the barrage of ads. I swear I've seen them back-to-back-to-back-to-back during the news.
Fortunately I have a secure entrance, so no door-knocking hippies.
And Laura would lay the ladylike smack DOWN.
