Teh Fred Announces
Update: Video Added

On Leno just a little bit ago. (Actually, hours ago.)

Someone was nice enough to upload the Leno appearance.

This next segment may seem screwed up, but it's how it played on TV. They broke out of commercials too late and the show was already running. So they start in the middle of this bumper sticker bit. I think the second bumper sticker could make an awesome slogan:

He looks kind of frail and is definitely not bringing the rock star quality I had hoped for. Too think, and the thinness ages him. If he lost weight to run for president, he might want to think about adding back a few gravitas pounds.

What's up with him nervously slapping his hand on his thigh? How can this guy not be comfortable in front of an audience yet?

On the other hand, just in a camera shot, he's a lot better.

Anyway, glad he's in. The race has been kind of frozen until now as people refrained from committing to another candidate to see about Fred. Now we'll see either way.

Incidentally, Frank Luntz's poll group thought overwhelmingly that McCain won the debate. And a lot of people didn't like Giuliani, though I thought it was a pretty good performance.

They knocked him for relentlessly touting the New York City renaissance. "What else is there?" one woman asked. Well, geeze, it is his biggest accomplishment and his tenure as mayor ended just six years ago. It's not like he's living in Vietnam like John Kerry.

Debate Summary: By Hollowpoint--

This was the best debate so far by a wide margin. Allow me to summarize:

Fred isn't here! Fred hasn't declared yet!

Rudy: New York City! 9/11! New York City! 9/11! New York City! 9/11! New York City! 9/11! New York City!

Romney: I don't know if the surge is working or not, but if it does I support it until I pull the troops out!

McCain: It's not really amnesty, its just sorta like amnesty!

Huckabee: Illegals are people too!

Brownback: You're getting sleepy. Veeery sleeeepy.


Tancredo: I will eat the souls of our enemies, waterboard their children and illegals will be flogged, beaten, deported, brought back and beaten again!

That's about right.

JackStraw's pissed at people for not mentioning Romney. Well, look here Old Boy: What should anyone say? He didn't perform all that well I didn't think; he seemed pretty slippery on questions about Iraq. And not even gracefully slippery. Kind of clumsy and transparent about it. I always get the feeling he's trying to put one past me, and worse yet, he's not even clever enough to do a decent job of it.

If he wins, sure I'll support him.
