Why Aren't People Talking About These Things?

Everybody is all, "blah, blah, blah, so and so absolutely won the debate last night." Whatever. Let's talk about some of the stupid shit that came out of John McCain's mouth last night. No one else seems to be talking about it so I will. First, he led his opening statement on his "sad note" of Ted Kennedy being in the hospital. Guess what, Mayor McCheese? He had already gone home well before you started because he wanted to watch the debate from home. Way to come out the gate looking like a fool.

But the thing that really sent everyone I watched the debate with in to peals of laughter is when he used the example of the North Koreans being shorter than the South Koreans as an example of how bad North Korea is. Does John McCain have a height requirement to be his friend? I mean his decision making process is a lot like a roller coaster so it stands to reason. "You must be at least this tall to be a friend to the United States." Maybe customs can get some new signs. If you aren't tall enough you can't even come in our country.

Also, we very much enjoyed how he made faces every time Barack Obama spoke, how he refused to look at Barack Obama or even address him directly no matter how many time Jim Lehrer asked him to. He may as well have put his hands over his ears and yelled, "I'm right and you're wrong" over and over. Do people really want such a brat as their president? It seems that the answer may be "no". The poll taken by CBS immediately after the debate indicated that Barack Obama got a big boost among the undecided voters. After the week Mayor McCheese has had, he does not look anything like a president. He looks like a liar that can't make decisions or be a useful part of Senate negotiations. And that's what I thought about the debate.

Unfortunately, I was one of the five people watching the debate on C-SPAN so I didn't get to see any of McCain's facial expressions. I have to admit though, he looked pretty good. For a corpse.

Oh, btw, did you know he was a POW back in the day?

Personally, if I hear one more time about the "war hero, prisoner of war" crap I may scream. Then again he has the hockey mom for a running mate...
