If, let's say, a visitor from Jupiter landed on earth, with absolutely no knowledge of the American political system, national or Virginia issues, etc., watched tonight's Senate debate... which candidate would they think is currently part of a major legislative body?

Certainly not George Allen.

Jim Webb is the political neophyte, but he clearly knows his issues inside and out. He was able to give detailed and nuanced answers to tonight's questions in a clear manner. Not only that, Webb's answers came across as honest and genuine. What he really thought is best for Virginia.

George Allen, on the other hand, was pathetic. On only one question was he in his element, on an issue that he has made his pet project of late. Other than that, his only refuge was tired GOP talking points, which left him unable to answer questions accurately and led to a totally disingenuous performance. He was stammering, looked uncomfortable and was totally disrespectful of the debate moderator and host.

Without any question, Jim Webb won this debate. It was a slaughter.

My favorite moment came at the end... George Allen's uncomfortable silence following a questions about some islands near Taiwan. (I'll admit I know nothing about them, but, then again, I'm not an incumbent U.S. Senator). That silence was golden. As Steven Colbert would say, the "dumb as a post" Allen was NAILED by Jim Webb.

Note to Allen: If you're going to associate Jim Webb with Hillary Clinton because she hosted one fundraiser for him, let's not forget YOUR close association with one Mark Foley of Florida.

Way to show your face, moron...

When your opponent has just made such an ass of himself, what more is there to say?
