Comment: You beat me to the punch.

(See in situ)

You beat me to the punch.

In my suggesting to you the notion of [tweaking or] removing the "Gary Johnson cites the Environmental Protection Agency as an example of good government" point, it occurred to me that you may react negatively toward the notion of simply shortening your list. I do respect the effort you put forth in creating it. It then occurred to me to suggest a compromise, that you replace that point with a point I hadn't yet seen on your list - Gary's nationalist perspective on [gay] marriage. Voilà! I peek in here today and see that you beat me to it and [unknowingly] foiled my attempt to use it as a point of negotiation. Drat! Anyway, thanks for the addendum. It's pure Gary and a well posted point with a good link.
