    Absolutely. Politicians don't debate children.


    From Dangerous Liasons (a favorite of mine):

    I think there's something degrading about having a husband for a rival. It's humiliating if you fail, and commonplace if you succeed.

    That is because the average high school student is more mature and knowledgeable than the average politician

    Gotta disagree with you here winston - I don't think either are particularly mature.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Right. After all, it would be detrimental to the republic if we were to leave the kiddies with the impression that anyone in Washington might ever listen to them.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Of course, why I didn't think of that! She's neither intelligent nor driven nor interested enough in politics to have come up with this on her own!

    She's got the DNC's hand up her ass! I bet she would've had a little radio earpiece, so that they could give her the right answers in the middle of the debate.

    We'll never know, of course, because Backmann's too full of herself to take some time out of her day to encourage the next generation of voters at that school.
