— Ace Angry words exchanged as he insists -- nay, demands! -- that the time-expired lights be removed from the debate lecterns.
GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Democratic candidate John Kerry's campaign demanded Thursday that the lights signaling when a speaker's time has expired during debates with President Bush be removed from the lecterns because they are distracting, but the commission hosting the debates refused.
An angry exchange between representatives of the Kerry campaign and the Commission on Presidential Debates took place just hours before the candidates were to meet at the University of Miami for the first of three debates, The Associated Press learned. Kerry's team threatened to remove the lights when they visit the debate site with Kerry later in the day.
"We'll bring a screwdriver," said a Kerry aide familiar with what several people called an angry exchange.
Is it so hard for this moron to just limit his scary-important dissertations to two minutes?
Or is his camp just trying to reduce expectations? Is this story real or contrived in order to make people think that John Kerry might Hulk Out if the time-expired light goes on?
Eh. Either way, he's a shaved Bigfoot.
Jenny Backus is probably straining to keep her peepers in her head as we speak! I think they should have Teresa stand up and start telling people to shove it as soon as those lights start blinking!

a) He won't release his medical records
b) Strange changes in skin color
c) Constant licking of lips
d) An irrational fear of blinking lights...
Is it Narcolepsy? This explains his falling off bikes, forgetting what he's said shortly after saying it and sleeping through the last year of Senate votes.

"The Bush teams wants to debate about things like this to distract from the real issues," Devine said.
That line is getting pretty tired.

Unless, of course, you plan on going over a lot, and don't want the whole world to notice that you can't say anything in under two minutes...

If he didn't want the lectern lights, why did he, through his reps, agree to them earlier?
And most importantly, if he and his team can't successfully negotiate favorable conditions for their candidate for a freakin' campaign debate, how in the hell does he expect to voters to think he can successfully further America's best interests with overtly and covertly hostile powers?

That's easy to explain, Rocketeer.
He voted for the lights...before he voted against them.
