The Funny Part

Yesterday, I watched a rerun of the Tuesday night presidential debate. I was appalled by the same things you guys were. McCain was abysmal in so many ways.

But, there was one point I found to be laugh out loud funny and when I heard it, that’s exactly what I did. After McCain had dramatically misidentified Senator Obama’s tax plan. Senator Obama correctly responded, “The straight talk express lost a wheel on that one.

Senator Obama may have been a bit generous with his remark because it looks to me like all the straight talk express is running on now is the spare.

I watched a rerun ...

You're better than I, POP. It's tough to watch McCain the first time through, let alone again.

Not very pretty was it. Cookie Jill who has had some experience working with the aged said that McCain is displaying many of the symptoms of an older person with "Sundowner". Irascible, disoriented, can't stay still and walks around aimlessly.
I didn't know what to call it but McCain was very odd in that debate.

McCain keeps helping Obama win. I think it's great.

He was being very condescending. It's like he's trying to hand the election to Obama.

Why is he giving up so quickly? Maybe he's not liking his afternoon naps being interrupted.

It is hard to imagine that McCain really wants to win. But you know, people that age just can't compete in today's world...

Now I hear he has some smear video out about Obama and Ayers. I really don't think anyone but his "base" will care. But I may be overly optimistic and expecting too much sense from the American people.

This race isn't over yet so we shouldn't be complacent no matter how lame we feel McCain and Palin seem. For some reason many people will still not see it that way no matter what.

I managed about 20 minutes, but was incredibly impressed with Obama's presence.

Anybody see Olbermann last night showing that clip of McCain saying "my fellow PRISONERS" instead of "CITIZENS?!" (not at the debate, but at a rally)

And another thing: if you watched the debate on CNN, there was that graph thingy at the bottom showing those "undecideds" reactions to what the candidates were saying. Every time either one of them - and of course it was usually McCain - went negative against the other, the graph lines fell. Looks like people care lots more about the issues this time than smear tactics.

He just gets cranky because the debates start so late, and he's usually in dream-land at that time, cuddling his GIJoe doll and dreaming of Joey Lieberman.

McCain's health is a problem in this race and it scares me that it's a possibility that this guy may not live out the four years that are required of him.

I must agree that he seems to be running on the spare, thanks for the laugh.
