The Master Debate: McWTF??

Haldol side effects include blurred vision, dry mouth, nausea, vomiting, and grabbing people's asses.

This wasn't Photoshopped. Or more accurately, the entire Republican campaign is a Photoshop effort, and this image slipped past them somehow. It happened when McCain couldn't figure out how to greet Bob the Moderator.

Half a dozen friends came by and watched the contretemps, erupting in roars of laughter every 10 minutes or so. Lowest moment of the night #1: "Joe the Plumber" was mentioned 26 times, and we didn't have a drinking game ready for it. Lowest moment of the night #2: McCain was seated at the same table with Obama and Bob, just a lunge away from a head-butt and ear-biting, but the Haldol kept him in check. Best moment of the night, hands-down: when referring to running mate Sarah Palin, McCain said, "she's a breast of freth air."

I liked the McCain fact that Obama voted against Breyer for the Supreme Court.

When McCain said that, my wife became very empathetic to McCain: She looked at me and said in all earnestness, "He is too old...he is losing his ability to remember things."

I missed that one, but yes.

Did you catch the time he referred to Obama as "Clinton?"

I was blissfully apart from the debate...Did all this stuff really happen?

Bah. Palin is a breath of rotting moose flesh. McCain - I do not feel any empathy for this nasty little wreck of a human. He's sold his soul to the company store repeatedly, and I hope will not ever get anyting for it.

And "Joe the Plumber" is a wingtard plant. Gosh, whod'a THUNK? I mean, the guy only said "socialism" every other word or so...

phil--

well, I made up (or guessed) the Haldol part, but the rest is too true. McCain's anger management classes can only go so far, and he struggled a lot with his body language.

iz--Maybe the sold-out version of McCain is better than the real thing. There's a person inside there somewhere, but he's a vindictive little sociopathic asshole.

Mr. Pirate,

At this point, there are probably about 20 people in the country who are uncommitted, but couldn't they have found somebody less obvious than a libertarian plumber with the fashion sense of G. Gordon Liddy?
