i think Obama was the clear winner. not that McCain was bad, but "that one" was superb.

and Memphis and i have decided that Rachael Maddow is our favorite lesbian since Jackie from BRAVO's "Work Out."

Yeah but she would have never looked that good in 'the slave outfit'.

I fell asleep through half of the debate.

If Obama can stay away from a major gaffe it's all over.

wow, even the psychotic posters on the most right wing of blogs (TownHall, Malkin) have pretty much packed up the van and are heading out early to beat the traffic on this one.

That answer had better have been given in response to a question on education. Seriously.

The two competitors seemingly shook before the young guy from Illinois greeted the wife of John shown in the video north of my post:



I thought the progressive nominee did better responding to the foreign policy questions strongly. I think we found in 2004 that U.S citizens like minor over belligerence so even if the senior from the southwest had effectively shown the young guy would ignore sovereignty to kill terrorists, the young guy would not be punished for intending to pursue the group behind 9/11.

I wish the candidates had actually answered the questions rather than taking every opportunity to launch into their same old talking points. They were really good questions and genuine answers from both candidates would have been fascinating.

McCain's best answer was the to the very first question. I felt he answered it straight-up and intelligently. If he'd stuck with that instead of deciding to attack Obama throughout the evening, I think he would have done a lot better.

There was nothing racial about "that one." It was disrespectful but the disrespect was unrelated to racism.

Overall I found the debate to be less than compelling. . .but then I was holding my baby boy in my arms through the whole debate, so Obama and McCain weren't much competition. .
