My favorite thing

from last night’s debate, at least for the moment:

“The enemy understands a free Iraq will be a major defeat in their ideology of hatred. That’s why they’re fighting so vociferously.”—George W. Bush, Presidential debate, Coral Gables, Fla., Sept. 30, 2004

Thanks to Slate for providing the quotation.

Vociferously. Yes, that’s the ticket.
