the granholm/devos gubernatorial debate

If anyone knows where I can find either audio or video of last night’s debate, I’d appreciate it.

    Hey Mark-

    Saw this info on the WKAR website: “Beginning Tuesday, October 3, the television special will be available for online viewing at, and the MPRN radio coverage will be available as a downloadable podcast.”

    Was a great debate. As expected, Granholm presented a real, specific plan for Michigan, and DeVos avoided answering any real questions. Great article in the DFP this morning.

    Jennifer = 1 of 3
    Dick = 0 of 3

    True … At the end of his first kindergarten day, a small boy pointed for his father to another child and said quite clearly in a loud and anxious whisper, “His name is Dick! Dad, why would parents name him Dick?”

    Listening to WWJ.AM this morning, I heard a woman being interviewed on her reaction to the debate. She acknowledged that DeVos hadn’t said anything specific, then added that she was voting for him anyway. Made me want to spit up.

    DeVos failed miserably.

    Of course Bush failed miserably in his debates and still won.

    Question now is what do we do about Debbie, whose lame response to why she voted with Bush & the Republicans on the trials-of-a-sort for “terrorists,” plus all the rest of the garbage in the bill, shocked me. No principles? Shame.

    (Like I complained in high school … it’s the principal of the thing.)

    I hear ya, egpenet – it’s that classic maneuver where Debbie figures her “base” will vote for her regardless of how far she strays. What are we going to do, though? Vote for Bouchard?

    Actually, it looks like the Dear Dems, Please Find a Better Candidate Party (aka The Green Party) has a horse in this race. (As do the US Taxpayers and Libertarians.) Currently, “Liberal Debbie” is polling 8-10% ahead of Bouchard. I’ll probably put off doing the electoral calculus (vote for a torture-approver, or vote against a Democrat?) until election day, and see what the spread is then.

    If Debbie is up by 10 points in the polls, then why in the fuck did she do this? It’s inexcusable regardless, but at least I could understand it if she were behind.

    She hasn’t responded to my letter yet.

    Have any of you heard from her?

    I’m working on a post about Debbie… Hopefully, it will be done soon.
