Debatin' and Fightin'

megaphoneMy fellow Canadians, I have no doubt you'll be tuning into the debate tonight. After all, it's the first televised English debate between Stephen Harper, Stephane Dion, Jack Layton, Gilles Duceppe and Elizabeth May.

What's that? You're going to watch a different debate tonight? Shame on you... but since we're being honest here, I'll be switching my attention to the USA VP candidates myself at 9 pm ET. Luckily, ours kicks off at 8 pm ET.

I was going to list songs with "debate" in the title, but there really aren't any. Instead, here are 15 "fight" songs to get you in the mood.

  1. Fight the Power - Public Enemy
  2. Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting - Elton John
  3. (You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party) - Beastie Boys
  4. Don't Fight It - Wilson Pickett
  5. Street Fighting Man - The Rolling Stones
  6. The Last Fight - Velvet Revolver
  7. The Last Gunfighter - Johnny Cash
  8. Fight - The Tragically Hip
  9. Can't Fight This Feeling - REO Speedwagon
  10. Fight Like A Brave - Red Hot Chili Peppers
  11. Fight Test - The Flaming Lips
  12. Still Fighting It - Ben Folds
  13. Supersoulfighter - Lenny Kravitz
  14. Can't Fight It - Bob Mould
  15. Street Fighting Years - Simple Minds

Oops, the Canadian debate is at 9 pm as well. I'll bet way more Canadians watch Palin than Dion.

Well she is not as stupid as I thought. Not even close . I have to stop reading the internet so much. I would still vote for the democrats I think but she was not the ditz I was expecting.

There were some definite gaps trust me James, she totally ignored the economic bailout questions and got the General's name wrong when going back and forth on Iraq. She also brought up our infamous No Child LEft Behind and if any teacher in our country was watching, she just lost the votes of every single solitary teacher in the United States.

Oh yes I saw those Gaps as well. I think I was just a expecting a meltdown and we did not see that. I would not vote for her unless she was running against a much farther to the right and even more religeous nutbar.

She rehearsed well. This I conclude from watching highlights on the news.

I was watching the Canadian debate, and Dion did well, but not exceptionally. He came off as less ideological and sounded very genuinely concerned about the country and making progress. Harper tended to address every issue with the basic Conservative ideology. Regarding $44 million in cuts to the arts and culture he said that the $500 child tax benefit will make up for that, which took the prize the most bullshit statement in that debate.
