I actually thought that the Joe the plumber thing was a good rhetorical device. It seemed to me, however, that whatever points McCain might have scored on Obama were completely undermined by his behavior. Maybe it isn’t good to base important decisions on such things, or maybe it shows something about character and leadership style. But either way, Obama looked like a mature adult, while McCain looked to me like a 72-year old 14 year old girl, being lectured about a bad grade or being told that she can’t have a $400 outfit. He was disrespectful, rolled his eyes, grimaced, sighed... I was waiting for him to hold up his hand and say “what- EVERRRRRR” or “Gaaaaahhd!” or something like that.

For those of you who watch Project Runway, McCain was Kenley.

Yeah, but if you were in a bar arguing with some drunk about the 2004 world series, which candidate would you want fighting for you?

And which vice presidential candidate would you send to Washington to shoot lawyers?
