I’m half listening to “the gay debate” (www.visiblevote08.com ) and that’s what I got from the first candidate.
John Edwards up next. Perfect hair?
UPDATE: I don’t know what the ratings are — who even has Logo? and how many of us 2008 dorks are catching a bit of it online? — but other than John Edwards being a little too defensive when Melissa Etheridge said that he’s been uncomfortable around gay people in the past — this strikes me as a smart p.r. move for gays and lesbian activists. As long as the focus is talking about exclusion and inequality.
UPDATE II: John Edwards makes use of Ann Coulter. He’s against “hatemongering.” Does that make him pro-Hopemongerer?
UPDATE III: The enthusiasm for Dennis Kucinich among the audience has me ready to call it a night. I may just do that. What Have I Done to Deserve This?
UPDATE IV: “I’ll wait” — questioner Melissa Etheridge endorses Kucinich. I Run for Life.
UPDATE V: Mike Gravel is next. Sorry. When they cut him out, I watch. When he’s there: I’m just not Strong Enough.
UPDATE VI: A reader points out: “The nytimes is homophobic. they are not live blogging the gay debate, yet they liveblogged the union debate.” Will They Live to Tell?
UPDATE VII: Kucinich and Gravel are clearly declared as pro-love candidates. Where will Hillary come down?
UPDATE VIII: I may never know. I have a Constant Craving for sleep. Good night. Sorry, Hillary. But San Fran is still tuned in, different zone.
