Democracy in Action

From The New York Times Letters page, Thursday, October 7:

To the Editor:
The debate on Tuesday was really a debate between substance and fluff.
...
If you enjoy fluff, John Edwards won. But if you want substance and a clear understanding of the issues, Dick Cheney won by a landslide.

From a mass email from Bush Campaign Manager Ken Mehlman, received Wednesday, October 6, 6:13 am:

Dear Guy,
Edwards failed as a credible advocate for John Kerrylast nightand Dick Cheney proved that substance will always trump spin.
...
Write letters to the editors of your local papers.
...
Sincerely,
Ken Mehlman
P.S. Even as one of the nation's best trial lawyers, John Edwards failed as a credible advocate for John Kerrylast nightand Dick Cheney proved that substance will always trump spin...

Sorry Jason, but we checked - if you live in University Place, Washington, your local paper is actually the Seattle Times Tacoma News Tribune. You've made this mistake before, let's not do it again.

(And dude, getting a perfect Math League score ain't much of a chick magnet.)
