I realize it's somewhat "off-message" to raise expectations for this Tuesday's Veep Debate in St. Louis, but I try to call 'em as I see 'em.
While the Lamestream Media has been carrying the water for the Right by echoing the "Where's John Edwards?" mantra of late, the fact is Edwards has been out there campaigning every day. But the Media has chosen to show pictures of John Kerry's tan, Dick Cheney's smarm and George W. Bush's misleading ads instead.
I had the good fortune to tune into ABC News Now last night (this morning) at around 4am where they were carrying a John Edwards rally in Ohio uncut and unedited. And lemme tell ya, it was a stemwinder! Edwards had the facts down hard and the crowd leaping to their feet every three minutes.
Anybody who thinks Edwards' is an empty suit with nice teeth is likely gonna be in for yet another surprise this Tuesday. He absolutely knocked the cover off the ball in that rally.
Unfortunately, I was unable to find a link to the video of rally over at C-SPAN. If anyone has it, feel free to share.
