Three thoughts about the Presidential debates
FIRST: pickled onions are an improvement on olives in martini, but the ensemble is too weird to become truly popular.
SECOND: also, lemon is good.
THIRD: if the main take-home lesson of this debate is not Bush's bizarre inability to let Kerry have the last word, to always demand the extra 30s/30s extended debate which is supposed to be the moderator's choice, then there really is something pathological about the American press (though, y'know, maybe the moderator could say "no" now and again). It's extraordinary how Bush reacts to Kerry's 90-second bits, really.
