    How exactly do we determine who wins these things anyway? The one who has the most zingers? They are the most subjective political events in the world. Ive seen ones I clearly thought one side did better than the other only to see the media say the exact opposite and the parrots on message board echo.

    First off, you're link doesn't work. Second, I'll lay odds that you just pulled up someone's diary. That's like pulling up one of the moronic thread starters here, and pretending it's this boards opinion. Damn, you're gullible.

    So how about it, do you have a link that works?

    A quick review of the profile of "inoljt" reveals that he/she is self-identifies as a left-leaning (anonymous commentators claim right-leaning) college student with an imperfect grasp of the English language. There are a number of problems with the analysis:

    - inoljt fails to define what is meant by "winning the debate" and indeed claims no correlation between winning a debate and winning the election. I suspect that Obama and Romney will both be debating with an eye towards increasing their odds of winning the election, and so neither would find inoljt's definition useful.

    - inoljt claims that Romney has improved as a debater. I agree, but it does not follow that he is a better debater than Obama, particularly since a general-election debate requires different tactics than a primary debate.

    - inoljt cites as evidence that Obama is a weak debater that Clinton won Texas. This is often claimed, but it simply not true (this is a pet peeve of mine). Obama won more delegates from Texas. That Clinton won more votes in the primary (Obama did better in the caucuses) no more makes her the "winner" than a football team scoring more touchdowns than their opponents necessarily makes them the winner.

    So why am I the first person to notice that the link doesn't work, yet you wingnuts all seem to take it at face value, without even trying to click. What a bunch of circle jerks.
