TGIF Quick Fix 6

I hate to admit it, but (drum roll, puh-LEEZ) Flipflop won the debate last night ... by not Flipflopping. He was on message. And Dubya seemed to keep pounding the wrong war, wrong place, wrong time theme too much. And missed golden opportunities to hold Flipflop accountable for vote after vote against weapons and defense spending. Dunno if the debate will change anything in the great scheme of things. But the D's should be encouraged that their man did well in his first big test mano a mano. (More to come)

1. Political 'Toon Fix: Paul Nowak gives his view on the big debate here, and Wayne Stayskal looks at that new blimp surveillance equipment in D.C. here.

2. Humor Fix: Jay D. Dyson offers a somewhat fresh Sacred Cow Burger here.

3. My Way Fix: On this day in history in 1908, Henry Ford introduced the Model T. You can find the rest of This Day in History here, This Day in Music here, and Today's Birthday's here.

3. Top of the News Fix: Bush rips Iraq flipflops/Washington Times here, Political strategists declare debate a draw/Washington Times here,Marriage protection rejected by house/WND here (and how they voted/WND here), 96 terrorists killed in major Iraq attack/My Way here, and One in 8 UK teen girls has chlamydia here.

5. Debate Fix: From The Weekly Standard, Fred Barnes sez Kerry's performance was enough to stir the faithful but not enough to change the dynamics of the prez race here, Jonathan V. Last takes a round-by-round view of debate here, and David Skinner wonders if Dubya was monarchal or just above nitpicking here.

Opinion Fix: Dick Morris/New York Post (Two winners), Cal Thomas/Washington Times (Mistrusting the media), David Corn/The Nation (Kerry stays in the hunt), Megan Basham/National Review ("Ladder 49"), and Jonah Goldberg/National Review (Iran).
