McCain looked infantile, he's reverting in his old age. The way he kept saying, hey, I want more time too! make him look like a jackass. Between the "that one" comment, the "you probably haven't heard about Freddie Mac" and his silly proposal about the housing crisis, he failed this debate,
and it was his so called strength at a town hall meeting.

Given how crappy he came across, now I'm kinda of disappointed (in retrospect) that Obama didn't take him up on the offer to go around to town hall meetings together.
;-)

In any case, McCain clearly has no respect for Obama; it's just not clear how much is race and how much is age (ideology, of course, always plays a role, but ideology alone wouldn't explain this extreme behavior). I need to do some research on JFK...I wonder if he was any more "experienced" really than Obama? And yet whole big hunks of the country got excited over that presidency...

@Deacon Blue: Actually, Bill Clinton was publicly criticized for the way Hillary's campaign slammed Obama's experience since Bill himself was essentially in the same boat during his first bid for POTUS.

I always wondered about the strength of the "experience" argument since (1) early presidents didn't have experience e.g. George Washington and (2) so called "experienced" politicians haven't gotten us very far either.

I'm also annoyed at McCain using his military experience like some kinda trump card in the race. Would somebody please tell me when that became the gold-standard of qualifying for POTUS? Didn't Bush dodge the draft? I'll have to confirm that one, but if true, wouldn't that make Bush a horrible choice? (Oh well. Bush was a horrible choice. hehe).

As always, I love to see you drop by. :-)

I'm trying real hard to NOT find Mccain a racist, but he making it MAD difficult for me NOT to.

@Nikki: Same here. But as others have suggested, it could be a matter of classism combined with a generational gap. Then again, looking at the way McCain unleashed the Pitbull with Lipstick (read: Sarah Palin)... who has been cited as a racist (with more evidence), I'm not so sure McCain is a foreigner to the racist voters the GOP campaign has seduced and continues to incite.

  • APPARENTLY YOU CAN GET EXPELLED FROM CHRISTIAN SCHOOL FOR APPEARING GAY

    California courts gave a Christian high school the "okay" to expel two female students who were perceived to be lesbians.The apparent trigger? The girls identified themselves as best friends, and one said she loved the other.

    I guess I better stop telling my female friends I love them. Story here for more on this B.S.
