I'm just sayin',
In related news, I can't get the video stream to work on C-SPAN, so I'm watching it on CPAC (which is webcasting both the US VP debate AND the Canadian English-language Leaders' debate). Is "ironic" the right word? Something like that.
Also, no love, US and Canada, for scheduling both debates for the SAME TIME. WTF?
