I have seen none of the candidates debate before so I hope that Brad knocks that blowhard/lobbyist fuckhead Coats out of the room. I am really afraid of what will happen if he becomes our Senator..

1. I'd say Ellsworth did a good job
:rant: I still hate that he is anti-choice and anti-gay rights, it makes me sick listening to him and coats. If that was the single issue at hand and i had to vote on that alone, I would definitely vote for the crazy bat-shit lady libertarian running because she actually understands the separation of church and state. It kills me that there are so many prejudiced people out there only because of religion (yes i am religious).

With that said, Coats was terribly outmatched today, he looked like a rotting corpse first off, then he was always stumbling over words and at times he was barely even talking loud enough to be heard. He was definitely scared and kept using the lies, that he spews constantly which Brad then quickly stopped and put him in his place.

I almost fell out of my chair when Coats lied about the unemployment percentage being the highest in history after the great depression. He conveniently forgot about those Reagan years when it was close to 11% while he was in the fucking Congress. I can't stand Republicans yet I am even more sure that I am with the correct people, when they lie so blatantly like that, I wanted to go up and slap him and every supporter of his who goes along with these evil lies and distortions. :grr: Rant over.

2. Indiana politics being what they are will allow Coats to lie and the corporate
mafia will still be able to buy him a Senate seat.Its sad but we are The Corporate States Of America.The SCOTUS put the finishing touches on that.

3. I suspect that the die-hard republicans watching think Coats
won the debate.

Too many of Ellsworth's positions were so similar to Coats that many republicans and middle of the road voters won't see much difference between the two, given they will favor Coats' positions over those of Ellsworth where there is a difference.

Secondly, the die-hard republicans will dismiss Ellsworth's claims that Coats was lying as "politics as usual" or "they all lie."

If there was a winner it was the bat-crap crazy Libertarian, who came across as less bat-crap crazy than expected and, I thought, effectively painted the two main stream candidates as two peas from the same pod. Unfortunately I suspect that she will pull more votes from Ellsworth than Coats given the intensive republican support compared to the lukewarm democratic support for Ellsworth.

The last poll I saw had Coats up by 10 to 12 percent, a margin that bodes poorly for the three democratic House members elected in 2006. Unless there is a big turn around between now and the election the republicans could pick up both the Indiana Senate seat and three House seats.
