Flimsy Sanity: Debate

Flimsy Sanity

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule. - Friedrich Nietzsche

Debate

High school debating should be a required school activity. It teaches how to think on your feet and how to construct a persuasive argument. Sure, preparation is part of it, but the fun of watching a high school debate is seeing how they can think fast. Believe me, it is more interesting than sports.

The VP thing yesterday was not a debate. That thing (whatever it was) was a waste of time. People are complaining the Ifill is writing a book about Obama and three other young black politicians so she should not have been the moderator. That thing didn't need a moderator because the only function she performed was to interrupt the stump speeches of either side. BORING.

    Egads. Rove always struck me as one of those fat kids that swear they will punish anyone that ever laughed at him.
