yesterday's word of they day was "Pygmalionism " this was the usage they gave:

"Sarah Palin has been an exercise in Pygmalionism gone wrong. The most famous female politician in the world today is a vain and sanctimonious woman of boundless ambition and no vision."
Janet Bagnall; Setback for Women; The Gazette (Montreal, Canada); Feb 12, 2010

Yeah, that's pretty much right. I think the "no vision" thing is the thing I hate most about her. At least Bush had his own opinions (even if I disagree with them) and didn't just read talking points off his hand whenever he was asked a question.

Actually, I didn't really follow it. I was too young to vote in that one, and in general I don't really keep up on politics. I know it's bad. Maybe some day I'll start.

I typed "2000 presidential debate" in a youtube search and found this.

I'll look for some more later, but right now I've gotta go.

i was like 10 days from turning 18... i was kinda pissed. altho kansas votes don't matter :/

that was interesting. the think to remember is that Clinton was pres and his presidency was kinda in a bad place the last few years. the republican talking points are much like the ones of the democrats in 2008.

audio file of first debate

you're close. he didn't have his own opinions, for the most part, until Cheney could find someone talented enough to illustrate them using characters from Tiny Toons.
