Obama provides a realistic vision for the future, while McCain offers tired platitudes and tax cuts for oil executives. The only avenue available to McCain was to lie, because the truth will elect Obama.
McCain would want us all to be going into the final month of the campaign having serious doubts about Obama. Instead it is McCain's actions that are causing doubts to rise about McCain's own candidacy.
Every time McCain says "my friends", spit out your drink and shout "I am not your friend" at the TV. When NATO is mentioned, clink glasses with everyone around you and attack anyone who refuses to clink.
I haven't seen a beat-down like that since Bentsen vs. Quayle. It wasn't even close! It's over. There's no way the Other Guy can bounce back from a humiliating defeat like that. My Guy was so presidential.
