Veep Debate Wrap-Up


Well, it's over. It seems only fair that the candidates got to sit down through the whole thing, since the audience must have been lying down and sleeping by the end of it.

Strangest moment: When Cheney failed to respond at all to Edwards' invocation of the Dickster's gay daughter, other than to thank his opponent for the kind words about his family. Cheney, of course, has shifted his stance on gay rights.

To be sure, Edwards and Kerry are full of shit when they prattle on about civil unions vs. gay marriage. And when Edwards' big critique of the anti-gay marriage amendment was that it wasn't necessary because no state has to recognize another state's marriage laws. Come on, guys, either you believe in equality or you don't. Then again, it's hardly better that the GOP wears its bigotry and hate on its sleeve.
