    And I'm not voting for either, so how they became rich, nutter, incompetent, poor, stupid, transexual, or not a witch means nothing to me. I only ask why any of us should be happy about what appears to be two poor choices?
    Your the only one setting that bar.

    If you truly believe what you wrote, why did you attempt to prove nobody won the debate by posting an "opinion" from a CNN piece ???

    So, just because you can't vote for either, you don't care how the Senate majority leader magically became rich ???

    Did you care about Ted Stevenson ??

    Did you care about Duke Cunningham ??

    Or is this yet another example of your hypocrisy ?

    Harry Ried is well liked and respected on both sides of the aisle.

    Of course they don't tell you that on Teabagger News.

    No, I didn't vote for any of those people. Did you?

    And no, I wasn't the one setting that bar. Did YOU read the prof's links? The people in his links set that bar.

    Re: Reid on the Ropes in Nevada

    the bar was set by nature, by the inexorable physics of politics

    the powerful and prominent publishers of the sun and the review were only stating what was commonly perceived, the lay of the land, and they summed up the debate accurately, fairly and wisely

    that is, yes, all ms angle really had to do to win that thing was to go an hour without appearing as the whackjob fruitcake her opponents (in politics and the media) had painted her to be

    i watched that debate, took notes (as always), and when it was done i got on the phone with my network of prodigiously experienced political ponderers and the verdicts of mr's ralston and frederick were consensus, hours before they were printed

    she won by not coming off as a nut

    there are hundreds of thousands of nevadans who are absolutely disgusted with what's going on with our political leadership, both in dc and the state

    they very much want to unhouse harry but they have very real reservations about this woman who, it is true, has said some rather odd things

    her appearing face to face with the leader and coming across on pretty much every topic as competent and reasonable, if rather uninspiring, probably came as somewhat of a surprise to people whose only impression of her was formed by what they'd seen and heard via msm

    this is what virtually every professional observer concluded, from the sun to the review to ap to the journo listers at politico

    such consensus in american politics is rare

    she came across for the hour as conspicuously normal

    he, in contrast, was doddering, listless, personally compromised and on the wrong side of most of the biggest issues

    there, is that what you needed to hear?

    LOL!

    Low bar all the same.

    I'd vote for someone the left considers "crazy" over a cadaver any day.

    Meanwhile, remarks from a local political reporter:

    Consider the performance of Nevada Republican Sharron Angle in her single public debate with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Longtime Nevada political reporter Jon Ralston, no admirer of Angle, said that Angle clearly won. Reid, wrote Ralston, "looked as if he could barely stay on a linear argument, abruptly switching gears and failing to effectively parry or thrust."

    I didn't ask you if you voted for them, I asked if you cared whether they stole money because of their elected positions.

    Based on your response to Harry's dabblings, you could care less when elected officials abuse their offices.

    Hardly. If Reid is charged and convicted, I have no sympathy for him or anyone else. But don't make leaps. If reid is incompetent, as has been charged, produce a better candidate. Don't simply argue one idiot is better than another.
