Well, I had doubts about it...but the youtube format was pretty good. The informality and the irreverence of questions was classicly American. The answer to Drudge's mocking headline "Is This Any Way to Elect A President?" is:
Hell, yeah. It's a lot better than electing a President by having the Democratic candidate slimed via sleazy Republican leaks to your site, Matt.
Yes, how dare Drudge engage in petty gotcha games and shallow analysis when there is a need for substance. Damn right, Joe. You tell 'em.
And then...the most ironic paragraph ever written:
Edwards--Best of the candidate commercials. Very clever "hair" offering, mixing gossip about his haircuts with images of Iraq and Katrina. Generally strong and gracious responses. (Though wildly stupid to say that he didn't like Hillary Clinton's blouse.) But on the subject of haircuts, if I were spending all that money, I'd have the barber add a little gray: I'm not sure why it is, but Edwards comes off as too much the tyro to be a President. Appearances do matter. Sorry.
Joe, you are such a bitch!
