Shake Rattle Roll

YT thinks Holden's on to something:
I have one small piece of advice for John Kerry leading into tonight's debate: shake your opponent's hand.

Kerry should walk over to Bush's podium when the debate begins and shake Bush's hand. Maybe even give him a little hug.

Why? Because the Bush campaign made it plain in the 32-page debate memorandum of understanding that they do not want to have their candidate appear on camera with the much taller John Kerry.

If Kerry tries to shake Bush's hand at the beginning of the debate he will put Bush in a tough spot. Bush will face the choice of accepting the handshake and appearing to be really short before 50 million teevee viewers (and, remember, the taller candidate usually wins these days) or he can shy away or even refuse to retrun this gesture of friendliness and show the nation what an ass he truly is.

It is my hope of hopes that Kerry knocks Bush off-balance tonight. A gesture, a pointed question, I'm sure Kerry has something up his Armani sleeve. What's Bush gonna do, walk off the stage in a huff?

Approaching him as Holden suggests, would rattle Bush's protective cage. He is the Bubble Boy. One puncture and he's deflated. 90 minutes can be an excruciatingly long time, especially with the wind knocked out of you.

Dare to dream....a Bush temper-tantrum or melt-down caught on tape!
