Second senate debate

I'm listening to the second debate between the two main party candidates for U.S. Senator from Illinois.

It's just a farce.

First of all, Alan Keyes talks too fast for me, and probably anyone who is not accustomed to listening to him. Too many words per second. Cannot comprehend. Sounds like babble. I find this a little surprising coming from someone who is supposed to be an articulate radio commentator.

Second of all, Keyes isn't in even a viable contender for the office. He doesn't stand a chance. He never stood a chance. Maybe the debates are a good thing in that they provide Barack Obama a way to reach more voters.

But, it makes no sense that the other candidates were excluded from the debates.

Lbertarian: Jerry Kohn

Independent: Albert J. Franzen

Write ins: Kathy Campbell; Scott Doody; Donald McArthur-Self; Mark Kuhnke; Marcus Hester

Sounds strangely familiar... like in the Pres. Debates? :)
