GUEST,peedeecee BS: Edwards / Cheney a draw? (38) RE: BS: Edwards / Cheney a draw? 06 Oct 04


I think Edwards took it, although it wasn't the complete floor-sweep that Kerry had over Bush. One nasty bit was Cheney saying that Edwards' senate attendance is so poor that the debate was the first time Cheney had ever met him. That was a lie that was immediately disproved after the debate, when Edwards' wife reminded Cheney that they had all met at least twice before. Cheney's response: "oh, yeah."

But that's like a huge lying headline in a newspaper, and then a retraction buried somewhere on page 17.

More points for Edwards: Cheney lost his temper; Edwards didn't, even when Cheney lied. And Cheney lied repeatedly; Edwards didn't. Of course, he didn't have to!

The newspapers will sort out the lies over the next few days, and all the media will spin it however they want. Right now nearly all polls (including one from Fox) are giving it to Edwards.
