It's been a pattern ever since the governor of Alaska was offered the vice presidential slot: the closer we get to Halloween, McCain shows himself to be more and more frightfully unprepared.

As Democrats, we look forward to debates as a chance to explain our ideas to the American people and make our adversaries answer for the shortcomings of theirs. And that's usually our downfall.

if a bad guy had wandered hrough the street, pillowcase over shoulder at high noon, a host of adults would have called the local precinct for action. This was, clearly, what a concerned citizen should do. Taking the law into your own hands made as much sense as performing your own tonsillectomy.

Life is precious. John McCain believes that, Barack Obama believes that, Sarah Palin believes that, and so does Joe Biden. In fact, I'm not sure I have ever met a person who believes otherwise.

I'd still like to like John McCain, especially since I once did - to some degree anyway. But with every day on this marathon, in every speech, and every debate, I'm less motivated to do so.

During last night's presidential debate, McCain said he was "categorically" proud of the people who attend his rallies. He claimed he has always repudiated any "out of bounds remarks" made by Republicans.

I was surprised by the snap polls from CBS and CNN showing a big win for Obama. I don't think McCain ran the table like he wanted, but he did raise his rhetorical game.
