Today's must-read: Al Gore gives advice on how to debate George Bush in the Times.

My personal advice, number 1: Speak in short sentences, as advised by Harry Shearer in this NPR piece from yesterday. Some great fake Kerry-isms, such as, "I am, as it must now be obvious, speaking in short sentences".

Number 2: Don't try to be all buddy-buddy with the American people. You're not going to fool anyone with lines like "Who among us doesn't like NASCAR?" Show us that you know what the right direction for this country is.

Take this advice to heart, and go get him, Kerry! ben
