The Corner

Who Shows?

Attending tonight’s debate will be: John “Abe” Kerry attempting to look presidential; Howard “Al” Dean looking much like the highly sedated nearly catatonic former VP did in the second Bush-Gore debate; John “Buddy” Edwards trying to be everyone’s best friend; Joe “Pepper” Lieberman who will lob minor attacks at the others like one of those small, annoying, yappy dogs; Wes “Headlights” Clark who will no doubt have that same dazed, deer-like look he always has when he is asked a question; Dennis “Alan” Kucinich who serves as the Alan Keyes of the Democrat primary; and Al “Light ‘em up” Sharpton who will provide the evening’s entertainment.
