A very brief reaction to the debate (updated)

Kerry managed to be Kennedyesque in his closing statement and nearly so at other times. That's just the right note, and I thought he gave his best performance yet.

Bush had the oddest look while Kerry was speaking during the early portion of the debate. It was as if he couldn't control his face, and it seemed to vacillate between a slight smile and a pout. I've never seen anything quite like it.

Strong win for Kerry—and I say that without the slightest prejudice.

Scott Lindlaw of the AP also noted Bush's odd facial mannerisms—
He stifled most of the facial expressions that marred his first performance, ending each answer with a smile, though the camera occasionally captured him dropping it abruptly a few seconds later.

The man lacks self-control—even over his face.
