(re: this story, Dana Silvernale comments: “What the press does not understand is that Green Party positions and policies are grounded in our Ten Key Values.  We are united in our goals.  The debate is not about the issues, it is about who can most effectively carry them out.”)

Here is a hipper take from the Fog City Journal:

  1. McKinney “won”, but I didn’t think it was for what she said as much as for how she said it. I thought she spent more energy asking us to look back on what she did in Congress than what she might do going forward.
    Similarly, I heard “Head Rock” coming out of Ball’s mouth in every other sentence, and, um, who cares.
    Too bad we couldn’t combine Mesplay’s ideas with Johnson’s showmanship.
    I quoted Swift as saying: “When you speak the truth to people, they will come, and they will vote,” which seems less self-serving than “If you speak the truth, people will vote” (above). I hope I got the quote right.
