OFF HIS MEDS?....I've been surfing around TV a little bit, and the one thing that surprises me is that there's very little comment about George Bush's demeanor, especially during the first half hour. His voice was several notches above presidential, he was interrupting both Charlie Gibson and the questioners, he was leaping to his feet, he was jabbing the air with Ross Perot-like abandon, and there were at least a couple of times when he looked like he was about to leap into the audience and throttle someone. It's one thing to be passionate, but it's quite another to look like you're off your meds and need to be restrained.

I'm not the only one who noticed this, am I?

However, in an effort be evenhanded, I have to admit that even I'm a little tired of hearing John Kerry say "I have a plan that...." I have a feeling the average joe might not be quite as excited about plans as Kerry thinks he is.

UPDATE: Atrios' take:

Bush is like a bad American tourist in a foreign country. If only he SCREAMS A LITTLE BIT LOUDER people will understand it.

Yep.
