Steyn on Debates
Mark Steyn is always great. His take on Bush is true but painful:
On Thursday, his own people seemed to have gassed him. Bush droned, repeatedly,
that Kerry was sending "mixed messages", but his own message could have done with being a little less robotically unmixed. He said: "It's tough. It's hard work. It's incredibly hard - and it's hard work. It is hard work," again and again, round in circles. But who needs Churchill? ... Almost any of us armchair warriors could have put down John Kerry's feeble generalisations better than Bush did.

Kerry, was nimbler, but far more nonsensical:
If John Kerry is so polished and eloquent and forceful and mellifluous, how come nobody has a clue what his policy on Iraq is? As he made clear on Thursday, Saddam was a growing threat so he had to be disarmed so Kerry voted for war in order to authorise Bush to go to the UN but Bush failed to pass "the global test" so we shouldn't have disarmed Saddam because he wasn't a threat so the war was a mistake so Kerry will bring the troops home by persuading France and Germany to send their troops instead because he's so much better at building alliances so he'll have no trouble talking France and Germany into sending their boys to be the last men to die for Bush's mistake.

Oh, and he'll call a summit.
