Weird debate.  No matter what McCain said, the women dialing their responses just weren’t buying.  I think he lost their trust long ago.  There was some substance to this one, and I was happy that Obama handled the Roe V.

Best lines:McCain- ” I’m not George W. Bush, if you wanted to run against him, you should have run in 04.”

Obama-“Forgive me if i mistake your policies for George Bush’s, its just that they look the same.”

    Turns out that Joe Wurzelbacher from the Toledo event is a close relative of Robert Wurzelbacher of Milford, Ohio. Who’s Robert Wurzelbacher? Only Charles Keating’s son-in-law and the former senior vice president of American Continental, the parent company of the infamous Lincoln Savings and Loan.

    , I am flying my trou at “half-staff”, so to speak. For, when “plumbers’ cleavage is outlawed, only outlaws will have “plumbers’ cleavage.”
