Geek Spin

Geek spin:Some people spend all their time watching and thinking about politics. I watched the debate on TIVO, because I was spending a great class talking about Timaeus. What a delight my students are! But that is the point. People spinning the debate actually watched all of it. Most people don’t. They walk in and out of the room. . . they TIVO to the best parts. They fall asleep on their couch.I think much of this was hopelessly dull. Bush invaded Iraq and removed Sadaam. Kerry would not. Bush thinks we are winning. Kerry thinks we are losing. What more is there to it? Most people are glad Sadaam is gone and hate hearing we have lost.Ignore debate geeks.
