Who is crying? The line about McCain's body trying to reject him was good, but you can't just arbitrarily say that my brother is CRYING about something. I don't think you quite grasp how little he is involved in all this, emotionally.
and if he was blind we'd be making photoshops of the scent of a woman for him to not see.
I was called a "muppet" in jest by a gal I have been writing recently, and it was one of the funniest things I have ever seen.
Okay, here's the one thing that I actually have a problem with, 12 hours later. (I don't care that McCain made a bunch of stupid comments like the three-eye thing, or THIS PEN IS OLD LIKE ME -- I don't care about them, because McCain was planning on skipping the debate to solve the mortgage crisis, so really, he had no time for prep)
The thing that bothered me was that McCain was wholly oblivious when it came to the format of the debate. He likes putting in these horrrrrrible little "jokes" in his speeches, which we're all expected to present thin-lipped smiles at.
But this debate was not in that format - because we're a Nation of Pussies, the crowd wasn't allowed to speak or murmur or cheer or laugh or show any emotion whatsoever. McCain couldn't adjust to the format! Obama at least understood that there was no point in quipping, because without some HEH HEHs from the crowd, there's dead air there, and it looks like the joke failed.
So, to me, this is why McCain came off as a fossil. Nobody is changing their mind thanks to a debate. I find the concept of someone "winning" a debate to be hilarious - the only way Obama could have "won" would have been if McCain called him a racial slur, and the only way McCain could have "won" would have been if Obama started loading up the TV monitors into his van. I think the value of the debate is the ability to adapt, and McCain couldn't/wouldn't bother to do it.
Minor thing? Sure. But so is the Presidency itself, really. As Ben said, we had, as a nation, five of the best Presidents in US history in our past and things are still screwed up.
