The Final Debate... Thank Gawd! (Updated)

And a few more weeks of ads and then it will be over. The campaigning will be over. The politics will continue, but it won't be in our living rooms as much.

So... whadda think about the debate?

Now you Republicans, please don't hurt yourself if you should faint, but I thought McCain did very well. Much much better than the other two debates. However, I still prefer Obama. I thought Obama did better than McCain in the debate, provided more details, conducted himself well, and he holds the same opinions as I do on many many things.

Those who want McCain to be president probably feel the same way.... only the names were changed to protect the mistaken. hahahaha I'm just kidding. You probably feel McCain won the debate, that he conducted himself well, and that he holds the same opinions as you do on many many things. The only thing left to do is vote.

We're still friends, right?

Update: Public TV's Frontline is currently showing a program on Obama and McCain and their biographies. I found it very interesting. Check your local listings to see if/when it will show again in your area... or you can see it online here.

Well I'll still be your friend. I thought McCain oozed sarcasm out of every pore. Not my cuppa tea when it comes to leadership. I wish he'd drop the very demeaning Joe Sixpack/Plumber line too. It's very condescending. His negativity is a huge turn off. He sounds as though all he can do is attack. If he'd shown this much vigor 8 years ago when Karl Rove and his pitbulls attacked him, he'd have beat W. Took an awful long time for him to grow some cajones. Other than that, he did just great.

Ya know, I don't follow politics. I don't know all the players nor their history, but I feel I'm at least smart enough to know we are living through a significant event in history.

I, too, felt the sarcasm, but I also felt my bias. But there is one thing I keep feeling.... that McCain's campaign committee, or whatever it is called, did not serve McCain well at all. Not well at all. He should have 'used' his cajones and been himself on the campaign trail. (well, as much of himself as possible... )

And having given it a little more thought, I can't help but think if McCain couldn't lead his campaign (spent all his campaign money, couldn't pay the people... this is his first campaign group) then he surely would have trouble leading a huge country.

“McCain was completely incapable of sustaining any momentum, and clumsily returned again and again to his "Joe the Plumber" gimmick. It was clear that John had "jumped the shark" when he began talking directly to the unseen "Joe", and congratulating him for being "rich". I think he realized too that he had blown his "last best chance". His eyes started flittering back and forth like he was lost and scared, and he began to make the faces that have been the source of so much speculation regarding his temperament and stability.”

I can't believe how much that man blinks. It drives me crazy.

I didn't watch it last night, because I'm not for either one of them.

I figured I could get the highlights off the net if I wanted. I saw enough of the blink and the looks to know I'm glad I didn't watch it.
