It's gotta be just me, right? And, Instapundit
. And, Stephen Green
. Insty and Stephen and me, and Allah
. And, Ace
. All of us sitting around, blogging and drinking Stephen's vodka to numb the pain of the Democrats' rhetorical idiocy.
We were drinking every time they mentioned a tax hike, but we quit that game after it sent Ace to the hospital with alcohol poisoning before the first commercial break.
Nnnnnyway, here's who is watching, according to Nielsen: Far fewer than even the lowest-rated sitcoms pulls, but still a couple million. A couple million of the nerdy proxy-voters cleverly recruited by sitcom-watchers to keep up with this stuff until a couple months before the election, so that they can just King-of-Queens it up while we're bored out of our skulls.
Sneaky guys those American voters. Here are the Top 3 rated debates so far
