No Hand Shows!

Finally, someone stood up to the idiotic "hand show" debate questions! At yesterday's Iowa dabate, Fred Thompson refused to raise his hand as an answer to a global warming question saying, "I'm not doing hand shows today." Hopefully, this will put that type of question forever to rest (the "hand show" question, not the global warming question). "Hand show" questions were never designed to inform voters on the complex issues confronting a president, they were carefully worded "gotchas." Maybe some seriousness can return to the debate format. If only someone had done this at the first debate...
