Town hall wrap-up

Don't miss Fafnir's report on the debate at Fafblog:
George Bush says he has protected the environment with such policies as his Healthy Smog Initiative an his Delicious Mercury Act. John Kerry says that mercury is not really as delicious as the president says it is an says he has a plan to protect the environment by holdin a summit with it. George Bush follows up by sayin he has a plan to preserve all creatures by leadin them two by two onto a real big boat.
Fafblog readers will be pleased to know we served pie at our debate party. Apple pie, because it seemed suitably civic-minded for a town hall meeting. There was ice cream and everyone was happy, as you would naturally expect with pie.

Even Wonkette noted that Bush's joke, "That answer almost makes me want to scowl!" was a complete dud. A couple of people have pointed this out but it struck me that this was essentially the same joke he told in his new foreign policy address/stump speech last week: "
After reciting a laundry list of Kerry's criticisms on Iraq, Bush said: 'You hear all that and you can understand why somebody would make a face.'" That line drew laughs and a standing ovation from his hand-picked audience. Do you think he'll learn anything from the fact that it left the rest of America cold? Yeah, I know what you think.

Lastly, we have new material up on Toad. And wonder of wonders, it's debate-oriented.
