    For Obama the debate seemed to be business as usual, just another jumping hoop on his way to the presidency. For McCain, the debate was torture. It looked like he was flashing back to his time as a POW. He couldn’t even look at Obama.

    Speaking of torture, how about that Couric/Palin “interview”? I keep marveling at how Palin could be the President in a few years. 3 . 2 . 1 . At least we wouldn’t have to think about global warming ever again . .

    I’ve read the transcript of the Palin/ Couric exchange and seen some clips. Amazing. A few more appearances like that and even some real racists will consider voting for Obama. Imagine her one metastized melanoma away from the Oval Office.

    I didn’t watch the debate, we watched a movie from Netflix instead. It was called Fighter, a documentary about a couple of old guys traveling back to Prague, the city where they both grew up and from which they were both forced to leave as Jews during the Holocaust. I’m sure it was more enlightening than the debate would have been. It was also a lot more fun, they really enjoyed each other’s company so that it was fun to see them yelling at each other and joking with each other and tickling each other. When they reminisced, of course there were sad stories, but also each of them had a lot of gripping tales of adventure and even some funny stories. It was really a celebration of life.

    I wonder what the chances are of McCain/Palin “getting elected,” McCain surviving 4-8 years as Head Warmonger, and then Palin “getting elected.” Would the world survive that long?

    Tickling . . how adorable!

    The world might survive, though I doubt McCain would. He’s an old guy with a lot of health problems, and the presidency is bad for the health of the people who hold it. So I’d bet that if McCain/ Palin wins, it’d be McCain for a year or less, then Palin.
