Fashion debate
I watched the Democratic "Rock the Vote" debate with great anticipation the other night. Not because I expected to hear anything different, but because the candidates were appearing before a group of twenty-somethings so I knew there was an opportunity that something really dorky would happen. The first question was: how would the candidates dress? Of course, Dean had his sleeves rolled up to his shoulders. Sharpton took his jacket off and then unbuttoned his vest. It was not good. Clark and Kucinich had pretty much the same thing on, a black mock turtleneck with a dark suit. Clark looked pretty cool; Kucinich looked like he would either bust into a folk song or order an attack on the U.S.S. Enterprise. I'm sorry, but he is a weird looking dude. The best part was the 30-second videos each campaign produced for the event. Lieberman's was the best (meaning worst) with this insane techno music that would literally melt your brain if you had to listen to it for more than one minute. The other videos also had crazy music and editing. Dean's was actually sped up so he was moving around all fast. Do the candidates think all kids are on ecstacy or something? I wanted to switch to decaf after seeing all the videos.

Laying off the caffeine might be a good idea generally, but it won't be enough to make George W. look good from any angle. Wes Clark was indeed the best dressed. And I say that as a man who wears mock and real turtlenecks and who happens to be a fashionable sort of guy. Kudos to General Clark who was looking very GQ.

Brett, I enjoy your voice. Although I didn't see "The Rock to Vote" your description was entertaining. I can't truly imagine any of these guys relating to 21 year olds. I have one and he relates much better in small groups with less distraction than you describe. By the way, welcome to blogging. Lee McD is advertising your blog over on Belicove.con.
