You know what would have been a nice little preamble to this week's rant? Something along the lines of..."A couple of weeks ago, after the first of 4 debates, which Romney apparently won, I cranked out what now seems to be a very boneheaded column in which I claimed that that first debate proved that the entire "left" is incapable of strong debate. After having seen the 3 subsequent debates, I stand corrected"....But, of course, being on the right means never having to apologize or admit you're wrong.

He might want to apologize to Candy Crowley while he's at it.

I did not read the article you claim to be refuting. However, I haven't seen anything in the last month that demonstrates that the left is capable of strong debate.

So while I can't say whether Praeger was wrong or right, I can say with complete confidence that if you're using the last month's debates as evidence to prove that leftists really can argue strongly, you're blowing smoke out of your @$$.

The left HAS proved that it is ready and eager to lie without compunction, and to behave like ill-mannered brats in order to achieve dubious tactical gains. But I would never call that "strong debate," any more than I would call hiring ringers and breaking rules to win a football game at the company picnic "good football."

In the meantime, it's not really MY point that "leftists" can debate strongly. Pretty much every poll that was done after the next 3 debates showed that viewers considered them to be VERY even (and I am being VERY kind in that evaluation...truth be told the polls showed that, after the first debate.....where Prager proceeded to make a jackazz out of himself, the Dems won the debates)
Stephen Moore, of the Wall Street Journal's editorial board, reported Friday that the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate from Arizona, Congressman Jeff Flake, has little support among some powerful big businessmen in Arizona:

"In his razor-tight race for Arizona's open Senate seat, Republican nominee Jeff Flake -- a six-term U.S. congressman -- recently met behind closed doors with about a dozen leading businessmen in the state, including two powerful and respected CEOs: real-estate developer Mike Ingram and former Phoenix Suns owner Jerry Colangelo.

"Both businessmen supported Mr. Flake's opponent in the Republican primary (Mr. Flake won by 40 points), and both are...
