72. Most comments miss Bandit's warning,
which is that our negative views of Bush's performance don't carry enough weight. Staying on topic might seem like simplistic bullshit to us, but not to the many trolls out there who want tough talk, short and simple. They really like Bush's stumbling, aw-shucks style; he's one of us, they say. If coherence was important here Bush would be trailing Kerry by 90 percentage points as author of one of the greatest foreign policy disasters since Vietnam, for which he has been caught lying over and over again.

Note: CNN International reviewed the debates with a panel of European experts and they all thought Kerry had won easily. They also believed that Bush would win the election. It's enough to make a grown man weep.
