not exactly cold turkey here

Okay, so I'm still in debate detox and apparently not doing a very good job of it. I think I had more browser windows open than last time though I saw less of the debate itself. So what does that make it? A draw? Tamar 1, obsession 2? Or maybe the other way around? Pundits everywhere scratch their heads.

In the meantime, I nearly fell off the bed tonight laughing at this ebay auction. Warning: only funny if you watched or otherwise ingested tonight's debate. Also probably only funny if you're a Democrat.

I was keen to hear about the last two debates, reading the blog world's take and comparing the opinion polls and so on. But this one? Completely off my radar.

I am way too depressed about last night's election results here in the antipodeans to have the stomach for US presidential debates. I plan to just close my eyes and hope things go better there on November 2 than they did here on October 9.

Kay, I'm sorry about how it turned out in Australia. And oh man, how I hope it doesn't presage a similar result here!! I completely understand losing your stomach for political news. It happened to me four years ago.

Good luck with the political addiction. I just want you to know that you've hooked me on electoral-vote.com. That stuff's like crack!

BTW, it was very cool to see Dan's name in big letters in the credits. As always, very nice job...
