Tonight's Debate In Two Sentences

Senator Government: Spend, spend, spend.

Senator Blinky: You can't spend your way into prosperity.

Instapundit was right - you summed it up in two sentences! LOL
Well done.

In the other debates, I didn't really give it to either person, even the Palin debate, because I didn't think either side did significantly better than the other in a way that would mean much with voters.

This time, I think the combination of McCain's performance and Obama not seeming to get out of the gate much ---- should pick McCain up a few points in the polls this week and maybe more.

If he doesn't, after this, my only hope for him winning is that the polling people have been wrong about the race to date.

If he gets a boost, the media still has time to grind it down.

If he doesn't, he won't be able to gain with the media against him as it has been.

And everybody says he was behind going in tonight.

I heard a lot of Beltway pundits talking tonight about how cool and collected Obama was in the debate and that he "smiled a lot."

Funny. They must have been looking at another guy, because the one I saw on TV was an insufferable, smirking jerk with a singular talent for expounding at length on absolutely nothing.

What channel were you watching? I haven't seen John Kerry for over three years!

I don't watch the debates. I selected a candidate ages ago. A debate is like a NASCAR race. Many people watch to see the big crash. I don't want to see my guy crash and burn by making some blunder.

I can do it two words: "Senator Government".

Watched 'Zohan'on DVD. Funny, the movie subscribes to the notion of America as a melting pot and not a multicultural mess.

I've said my prayers for McCain BUT will have my butt in the voting booth early on election day.

I kind of wish I could vote for Joe the Plumber ;-)

Was it my imagination, or did Barack Obama say last night that abortion is a "moral issue"? That doesn't sound like a liberal viewpoint to me. I always thought the liberal view is that abortion is a privacy rights issue, having nothing to do with morality.
