McCain's foul behavior  

5 comments
Check out this opinion piece on Salon.com about last night's debate. I am so happy that Joan Walsh commented on the fact that McCain acted like a disgruntled child:

I wish I'd organized a drinking game around the number of times John McCain said, "Sen. Obama doesn't understand," or found some other way to sneer at Obama as naive and inexperienced. For the most part he refused to even look at Barack Obama over 90 minutes. What an ass. It was hackneyed and condescending and, to me, repellent.

Unfortunately, she also makes the point that you could either see McCain as a major jerk for his behavior and Obama as admirable for not stooping to McCain's level, or you could see it completely the opposite.

I thought he looked gracious and presidential; others may think he looked insufficiently tough. I think Obama more than held his own in this first debate, but if you're looking for a grumpy, sarcastic put-down artist as president, your choice is quite clear.

Come on, America, it really isn't that difficult.

What next?

    Wow. It's tough to tell if he's actually saying "horse shit" though. Apparently Keith Olbermann said it was actually "course not," but who knows. We all know McCain has a bad temper.

    It sounded like "of course not" to me. He was very condescending and rude, even in that small clip I saw to search out the "horse shit"!
