They serve the purpose of furthering the illusion that the American people are being given a choice. Or, in the case of some people, making it clear that we’re not really being given one. Seriously; the candidates aren’t that dissimilar. But the debates are supposed to further the illusion that there actually is a difference.

The debates are only going to make the difference to that narrow margin of people who are undecided. After listening to multiple news sources last night, it was apparently a “draw”. No major gaffs, no election swaying sighs or glancing at the watch.

38 days until election day. I am in a battleground state. I am already tired of listening to both sides. Ugh.

Hopefully it showed people what a condescending prick McCain is. He wouldn’t even look at Obama. Gives you an idea of his management style.

i agree with everyone else. Mc Cain acted like a prick. I’m so sick of hearing about it…wish the election was next week.

After I re-played it on the Internet, I went into the bathroom and stared at deaddolly’s avatar, to make myself puke.

Just kidding!

Apparently, (and I can’t find the quote, but it seems to be common knowledge), when Bush was asked how the gov’t is planning to pay for the $700 billion bail-out, he said that the next Pres. and Congress get to address that issue.

aidje's avatar

He’s also said that he thinks it will eventually pay for itself… just like he said about Iraq.

I dream of Genie, I guess. I wish I knew how to do the same double-entry bookkeeping with my income and outgo.
