    Default Oct 11 - tonight's VP debate. WATCH IT !

    I hope all here on POTUS have a chance to watch tonight's VP debate. The moderator will be ABC correspondent Martha Raddatz. Her specialty is foreign affairs. No telling if our foreign policy and what is happening right now in the ME will be part of her questioning or not, but it might be.

    However, she might spend more time on jobs, the economy, and the national debt.

    There are some who say VP debates don't mean anything. Perhaps in the past, but I think this one will mean a lot.

    I wouldn't miss it even for an NFL game!
    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

    I have looked into my incredibly accurate, and often irritating, crystal ball-- Mr. Tickles predicts:

    1. Martha will 'lead' poor Joe when he gets to rambling and talking about chains.
    2. Martha will give Ryan the dreaded "look" that the libs are so infamous for.....
    3. Martha will inject her "Republicans all suck" bias into the debate.

    Anyone care to bet against Mr. Tickles??

    Whereas I think that this debate will have little to no effect on the election, I bet that there will be quite a large viewership, propelled mostly by the same reflex that prompts folks to slow down and look at an automobile accident (morbid curiosity). Can also imagine it providing many opportunities for drinking games.

    What are the odds that Vice President BiteMe utters something stupid enough to really matter?

    Martha is loosing control of the debate. She is not a good moderator.
