Is Basil a sage? Or is this the end of thyme?

Like me you’re probably wondering how Basil did last night in the great debate.

Luckily it was videotaped giving Americans the greatest visual debating experience since Kennedy-Nixon (or as wonkette described it "It Made Lincoln-Douglas Look Like a Conversation Between Two Retarded Baby Pandas"). ANyway, thanks to the wonder of youtube you are able to judge for yourselves, and then go back to read the impartial wonkettee review..

First, the pledge of allegiance – which causes Basil a problem because this is not a flag that flies right

The second clip confirms that while Basil might be a tad eccentric there are more dangerous people out there wanting to run for high office

Compare that – with Basil’s views, which I assume are not necessarily official Republican policy

There then follows the great energy debate, a particular favourite of Basil given his vegetation policies (see previous post)

Most controversial though are Basil’s policies on the drugs question – revealing that (as a programme) Basil is an old fashioned libertarian, happening to run on a republican ticket

Most intriguing of the videos from last night though is the appearance of the power behind Basil’s throne (on whom, a little more here)

Tonight is decision time for Basil. Will the people of Tennessee give him an extra 15 minutes of fame? Stay tuned, for the first politician to engage this blog since Tommy Sheridan.

I watch the telly and read when not doing law stuff and plugging my decade and a half old unwatched Edinburgh fringe show.
