News To Know: Just Your Average…Plumber?

Posted By Dave Goldstein On October 16, 2008 @ 11:45 am In Bulletin Today | 9 Comments

What did you get out of the debate? Well if you’re like me, you probably remember the candidates talking more about some plumber named Joe [1], than they were about many of the issues. Did you know they mentioned this guy [2]more than 20 times? That’s more references than they gave to just about every major issue facing the country! You’d think that in the days of this [3] and this [4], the candidates would be a little more willing to stick to the matter at hand and not get caught up in some silly and shallow conversation on one man’s personal situation. What did you think of last night’s debate?
