The Last Debate is over…

…and now the battle for the White House starts getting dirty.

Both sides are claiming victory on this one. Personally I think that it was a dead heat… with Bush getting a slight edge on integrity. I thought that Kerry’s mention of Dick Cheney’s (lesbian) daughter was a cheap shot – and it’s not the first time he has done this. He also seems to equate an unwillingness to push for gay marriage with homophobia, while I see no such correlation.

What disturbs me more were the subsequent comments from the Democrats. When Lynne Cheney got (understandably) mad that her opponents were using her daughter to score points Elizabeth Edwards blamed it on “shame” – another non-sequitur.

If George Bush had said something similar about Elizabeth Edwards’ daughter it would have been just as dirty.
