Kaine-Kilgore Debate Transcript

Did Tim Kaine truly club Jerry Kilgore, in the inestimable words of Barnie Day, “like a baby seal” in Saturday’s gubernatorial debate? Don’t heed the spin-meisters, make up your own mind based on the documentary evidence. The Bacon’s Rebellion blog presents the Virginia Bar Association transcript of the debate.

(Thanks go to Steve Haner for tracking this down and passing it along.)

  6. Thanks for plug but I got it from WWBT-TV’s website. I still watch TV news. Always have. Always will. (Read the transcript and you’ll get the joke.)

    Sorrel, Milking the cows? No, feeding the cats is more like it. Sometimes I just wake up early in the morning and can’t get back to sleep. Instead of tossing and turning and waking up the wife, I stroll downstairs, feed the felines and crank up the PC!

    Err, Jimbo… You don’t ‘milk’ those cats, do you?

    However, thank you so much for the debate transcripts since both candidates, including non-debater Russ Potts, and their political hacks claim to have won this debate.

    Having the debate transcripts is like having a …
