mccain sneers “that one”, misquotes TR.

Man, that was boring.  Awkward and uncomfortable jokes by McCain all went flat.  Insulting Tom Brokaw, jokes about hair plugs and balding (was that a swipe at Joe?).  The zingers were mediocre.  Then John McCain has the audacity to call B “that one”. OH NO HE DIDN’T.  I’m sorry, but I prefer audacity to come in the form beautifully bound hardcover book called “The Audacity of Hope”.  Ahem.  Here is the video:

What did he mean by “that one”?  What a demeaning term.  On top of flawed policies and rampant lies, John McCain lacks the manners and professionalism required to be the President of the United States.  Just picture him at the table with leaders from around the world.  Is he going to call someone he disagrees with “that one”?  Or perhaps he’d like to use another one of his favorite words, cunt.  He makes me so mad.

And he messed up a TR quote.  Again, OH NO HE DIDN’T.

“My hero is a guy named Teddy Roosevelt. Teddy Roosevelt used to say walk softly, talk softly, but carry a big stick. Senator Obama likes to talk loudly.”

Ugh.  Get it straight.

And for the love of all things good and pure in this world, Johnny, please stop calling me your friend. I am NOT your friend.  I wouldn’t even be your Facebook friend.

The majority of pundits and polls show that Obama won this debate.  I agree.  He holds the American agenda, and I will be so proud to call him our president.

Also, this is totally unrelated to the debate, but I find it to be an important fact since the candidates’ personalities seem to be on a pedestal in this election. Today, while Joe Biden was at the funeral of his mother-in-law, Sarah Palin was criticizing him on the campaign trail.  She’s a jerk.

Twenty-seven days until this election is ovvvvvah.

johnny changes mind, decides to debate.

Oh, McCain.  Your political powerplay of supposedly suspending your campaign and trying to weasel out of debating Barack backfired.  Even the Huckster thinks it was a “huge mistake“.

Huckabee said he still backs McCain’s candidacy, but said the Arizona senator should not have put his campaign on hold to deal with the financial crisis on Wall Street. He said a president must be prepared to “deal with the unexpected.”  “You can’t just say, ‘World stop for a moment. I’m going to cancel everything,'” Huckabee said.

You flip-flop on your issue positions, but now you’ve even flip-flopped on the debate itself, John.  But I’m glad you changed your mind, since administrators at Ole Miss said cancelling the debates would have been financially devastating.  Plus, Barack would have showed up (because he can multi-task–an important skill for a president, no?) and done the debate without you.  You better get ready for the ball, Cinderella, because it’s going to be a good one.

I, however, will not be able to watch it live because I will be enjoying the musical stylings of the one and only Mr. Ben Folds.  Somebody TiVo it for me, please?!  The debates are being held at Ole Miss and will be broadcasted at 9 p.m. on pretty much every news network.  WATCH THEM.

UPDATED: Apparently I don’t have to watch the debates, because John McCain has already declared himself the winner.  I am not joking.  The man that tried to get out of the debates ran an ad this morning in the WSJ that he had won the debates!  Click here for the WaPo story.  Here is the ad:

HAHAHAHA.  Somebody’s getting fired today…
