The Telegraph: Barack Obama Stumbles in Hostile TV Debate

Yup. That's about the size of it.

Was this an intentional anti-Obama ambush? No way. Probably Obama just drew the short straw. The spastic media decided to get tough all of a sudden, and so they went after whoever-the-front-runner-happened-to-be with whatever was handy--which happened to be wingnut talking-points in this case. It was appalling, but that's our media.

On the bright side, it probably won't matter. Remember how Gore consistently beat Bush senseless in debates--and it seemed to matter not at all. On the other hand, that was issues, this is muck. That stuff seems to have sticking power.

I may have mentioned this before, but: this doesn't seem to be the optimal way to choose a president...
