The Debates are ON!

Welcome to: McCain looks constipated, and is entirely unable to answer a question directly.

I know I'm all for the O here, but he seems way more adept to staying on topic and actually answering questions instead of finding clever ways to divert into attacks or deliver soundbites.

I don't know how you're watching it, but if you're on CNN they have this fun little audience-response-o-meter that shows how the audience feels about what is being said. This pleases me greatly for a number of reasons.

  1. It's really interesting to note that no one -- neither Republican, Democrat, or Independent -- likes it when one attacks another instead of answering the damn question.
  2. People are really not responding to McCain's repetitious "miss congeniality" bilge, or anything else they've heard outside of the debate.
  3. Even the Repubs appear to dig Obama.
  4. McCain has been the only one to suffer negative audience reactions.

Oh, if McCain talks about earmarks one more time, especially with his VP's history of earmarks, I am going to poke him in his jowls so. hard.

ETA: The political blogs are all aflutter with this, but did anyone else notice that McCain would not look at Obama?
ETA2: Yeah, this is about right.
ETA3: I re-watched the debates. Did you know that McCain thinks the oppressive North Korean regime is so evil those people are actually 3 inches shorter than the South Koreans? True.

God, It's glorious. This audience participation think really gives me hope for the upcoming election. He's even unpopular with the Republicans.

I love how Obama breaks it down, and puts context in it. McCain will be CRUSHED by context and I am LOVING IT!

McCain's temper is a definite problem in these debates. Especially against Obama who can not only control his temper, but also freely and gladly move on from a point -- even when he had a comeback. He was willing to respect the debate's time frames and didn't need to put in the last word.

It's clear that it's his attempt to twist Obama's words and make him look stupid. Oddly enough, it's just making McCain look like an ignorant jackass who only hears the side he wants.

I know, I agree completely.

Dude he is driving me CRAZY!!! And that little biip about earmarks 10 minutes ago... wow, I was rolling my eyes so hard into the back of my head it HURT. Does he even KNOW who is running mate is??? His Miss Congeniality comments are even funnier considering her past, too, lol.

I love the audience meter!!


lol even the Repubs seemed to agree wholeheartedly that we should seriously be in Afghanistan right now.

lol Kissinger......

Yeah! I was surprised to see how many Repubs were agreeing with Obama most of the time. It really shocked me. I expected the red line to be either flat lining or low but it really wasn't.
