So, who watched the debate? I watched it while I cleaned the kitchen. Doing something physical was helpful to keep my mind occupied enough with something else so as to not scream at the tv.
Seriously though, apart from the time that John McCain talked in a melodramatic way about the bracelet he had from the mother of a soldier who died in Iraq and then Obama said, “I have a bracelet, too,” I was able to keep from too many snide remarks.
I admit to some concern about how McCain would do, but I honestly think he held his own pretty well. The dem spin is that he talked too much about what he did 30 years ago, but I really felt those points did bring attention to Obama’s lack of experience. McCain may have dropped too many names and said he loved Petraus too much, but overall, I was pleasantly surprised with his performance.
For a little debate humor, take a look at this.
