Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, August 06, 2014

Six weeks before Scotland votes on whether to break up the United Kingdom, the issue of independence was the subject of a U.S.-style television debate on Tuesday night. Alex Salmond, head of the pro-independence Scottish National Party, lost the debate according to an ICM poll of viewers for The Guardian. The pro-independence side trails in opinion polls ahead of the Sept. 18 referendum. "No one, absolutely no one, would do a better job of running Scotland than the people who live and work in Scotland," Salmon said during the debate. "On the 18th of September, we have the opportunity of a lifetime -- we should seize it with both hands."

I'm a little skeptical of political debates as far as it supposedly showing which side is better. Many times the winner is just a better BS Artist.

Historians have said that Thomas Jefferson was somewhat shy and a terrible public speaker. He'd never be elected today.

It'd be a royal pain in the bum to remove St Andrew's cross from all of the Union Jacks and affiliated commonwealth cantons around the globe.

Of course not. He was worse with money than Obama. I doubt Obama will die broke. Jefferson died so broke and in debt his family had to sell off Monticello at a fraction of its cost to pay off his debts.
