We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I'm on the road and using my laptop (barf) so this'll be short. Just a reminder that the third and final (praise be) presidential debate is on tonight. Showtime for the event in 9 pm Eastern. More info & a streamcast here.
By the way, in case you were out of the country planet last week and were wondering who won the debate, you'll be interested to know that both sides won. Democracy in action! Obama won the 'Overall Likeability' contest (which counts for half, as I understand it) but in every issue-oriented question ("Who do you think will best improve the economy?" e.g.), Romney won it walking away.
I think we'll see a general repeat of last week tonight. Three things will happen; both candidates will be at their best, the moderator will make damn sure Obama is protected from the slings and arrows of outrageous truth, and the MSM will pick one single Romney quote ("binders") to go nuts over. The usual stuff, in other words.
