Now that the first debate has come and gone, the internets are buzzing with thoughts on who won and why and whatnot. Here’s what I notice:
- Folks who are going to vote McCain/Palin in November say McCain won.
- Folks who are going to vote Obama/Biden in November say Obama won.
- Folks who are going to vote Barr/Root in November wonder why Barr wasn’t invited to the debate.
- Ditto the Barr/Root point for all other third parties.
Seeing a pattern here? It’s almost as if everyone is saying their preferred candidate won!* Holy crap! Somebody call NASA! Science has just taken place!
*Obviously, nobody voting third party is saying their preferred candidate won. They’re more interested in getting their preffered candidate into the next debate than who won this one.
