Interesting post by a friend who watched the debate on TV at the Berkeley campus last night. Gales of laughter greeted the most powerful man in the world:
“It was actually hard at times to hear the President’s replies to questions because the audience was laughing so hard. I don’t believe the President intended to be a comedian. But from the perspective of this audience, albeit a liberal leaning one, George Bush did not come across as presidential, nor did he succeed in sounding even as if he had serious answers to many of the questions asked.”
Of course, we laugh at this guy at our peril. He’s been laughed all the way into the White house. Hope everyone who was yukking it up is registered and will get out to vote.
