We're about 20 minutes in, and Bush has been -- dare I say? -- shrill for pretty much the entire debate. His tone of voice is stressed and raw, his body language is agitated, and he basically sounds like a guy feeling the sand crumbling under him.

Bush is also jumping in for after-rebuttals without waiting for Gibson to approve it.

Meanwhile Kerry is calm and composed, while punching it up when he needs to. "It's the military's job to win the war. It's the president's job to win the peace."

Exactly one guy on stage is looking remotely presidential, and exactly one guy on stage is looking like the bunco squad is closing in on shutting down his pyramid scheme.
