I am shocked, shocked I tell you, that John McCain closed with a POW reference.

Did you know that Obama's dad was from Kenya?

I hear this at work too...I think it's trashy...sort of like saying that someone who had skin grafts from being burnt needs to work on their complexion.

Discourse in this country unfortunately drops to the lowest common denominater too often today.

No kidding. Doesn't matter if you lean Dem or Rep - leave the jokes about McCain's injuries at the door. Better yet...just shut the fuck up!!!

I only watched the last ten minutes, so I don't have much of a frame of reference, but ...

Does McCain actually dislike Obama? He comes off that way.

You are all scholars and gentlemen. I applaud your humanity.

That being said, John McCain's little arms are a distraction.

Honestly, I had no idea there was anything wrong with his arms. I consider myself fairly well-informed, but I didn't have the information about all of his various war/POW injuries.

If I'd said "Dude, what's with his arms? They look weird." and someone then told me it was due to injury, I would feel immediately horrible and never comment on it again.

I knew about Bob Dole's arm and the pen-holding, but not about this.

I missed the first 20 minutes. I think it was a close debate. I do think McCain came across as condescending at times, and increasingly so as the debate went on, but like someone in the thread said earlier, I don't think he gained many votes, but he probably didn't lose any. Obama definitely came across as more respectful and civil.

Everytime McCain smiled with that condescending look on his face, I wanted to punch him! Obama was a lot more respectful!

You're not the first person I've seen speculate on that.

With Bush/Kerry or even Bush/Gore, I never got the impression that they disliked each other. Of course in the case of Bush/Kerry they went to the same university, were members of the same club at said university, and both from upper class backgrounds.

McCain and Obama have very little in common, very few common experiences or reference points.

Maybe McCain thinks that this guy is a jumped up upstart that came from nowhere.

Or maybe McCain is a closet racist?

They just had Biden on CNN. A VP candidate able to take on the fly questions from the media. Unbelievable.

When I see Kissinger, I want to vomit.

This man is a shameless war criminal, who should not be given any kind of platform to spew his views from.

When I see Kissinger, I see old time rock and roll.

The kind of music that soothes the soul.

It makes me reminisce about the days of old.
