“Goin’ to the candidates debate…”

In anticipation of Thursday’s Presidential debate and in light of some discouraging polling numbers for Senator Kerry, I keep flashing back to a line uttered by Jon Lovitz, playing Michael Dukakis, on “Saturday Night Live” during a sketch parodying the Bush-Dukakis Debate:

Diane Sawyer: You still have a minute-twenty, Mr. Vice-President.

George Bush: Well, more has to be done, sure. But the programs we have in place are doing the job, so let’s keep on track and stay the course.

Diane Sawyer: You have fifty seconds left, Mr. Vice-President.

George Bush: Let me sum up. On track, stay the course. Thousand points of light.

Diane Sawyer: Governor Dukakis. Rebuttal?

Michael Dukakis: I can’t believe I’m losing to this guy!
