Seems a bad time for The Dallas Morning News' Web site to be buggy, doesn't it? (It's up and down, like my mood this election day.) Surely it'll be fixed momentarily, but I don't recall this ever being a problem before the redesign. (Update: At 12:08 p.m., the site was still down. Ooof.) Oh, well. Guess we'll have to go to WFAA-Channel 8's Brad Watson for a report about last night's Rick Perry-George Bush double bill at Reunion Arena. I thought those guys were supposed to be popular in these here parts. Looks like, not so much. (Ignore the video difficulties during the first couple of seconds; it gets better. Does it ever.) --Robert Wilonsky
