He's still the only candidate I'm afraid of.

Devin said...

What does the title of your blog mean anyway?

Espo said...

I can answer that! haha I'm pretty sure it's a reference to a Jay-Z song.

Alton Brooks Parker said...

Geoff wins.

Devin said...

I know, but why the reference? does it have some significance?

Alton Brooks Parker said...

It has no significance other than it's a really catchy song and it was stuck in my head when I made this blog. I couldn't think of anything else and the blog title may change some time.

Wow, that is a pretty stark consensus.

A) That is a really sweet debate format. Youth, Environmentalists, and even labor (CTW/AFL) could use it as a means of providing a combined force amongst disparate voices in the future.

B) I'd be super curious to know how much Huckabee's fiscally moderate past came up. If it did, that just goes to show you how forced the arranged marriage between Big Business and the Fundamentalist Right truly is.

I'll be watching the whole debate this week. It was 3 hours long, so I'm not gonna watch it all at once. I'll let you know when I've seen it all.
