Presidential Debate Analysis

Last night was the last presidential debate of the year. If you saw the first two debates, then you pretty much saw this one as well. Not a whole lot changed, not even their catch phrases. The real thing to watch was the emotional reactions of each of the candidates. Obama played it cool, like the stoner on the couch. See if you can tell which emotion John McCain was going for:

“Americans are hurting right now, and they’re angry. They’re hurting, and they’re angry. They’re innocent victims of greed and excess on Wall Street and as well as Washington, D.C. And they’re angry, and they have every reason to be angry.”

They had a fun little fight over Roe v. Wade, in which McCain said that “health” was a liberal abortionist code word for killing babies. Doctors all understand this and are sure to lay a frothy steamer on a dead fetus anytime someone comes into their office complaining about their “health.”

Everyone is talking about how the line of the debate is McCain’s quip about not being President Bush. But the truth is, the funniest part was when McCain “slipped” and called Obama, “Senator Government.” Senator Government Hussein Obama. It’s got a ring to it.

Finally, they talked about the negative ads that are around. Obama made a claim that 100% of McCain’s ads have been negative, which is blatantly false. Just 100% of the ads in the last couple of weeks…and the scary hate rallies…and the name-calling. We must remember that this campaign season has last at least 50 years. If only Obama had gone to McCain’s town hall meetings, this all could have been avoided. Obama clearly hates America.

But who was the real winner of this debate? You guessed it – Joe Plumber. The two fought over him like a couple of wolves tearing at a carcass. Meanwhile, Joe Plumber is probably an ignorant mouth-breather who doesn’t know his ass from his elbow, and under a more enlightened society wouldn’t be allowed out in public, much less to vote. Ironically, he is now way up in the polls and may actually pull off a win. October surprise! Joe Six-Pack has already dropped out as everyone forgot about him. As it turns out, the real Joe Plumber already made up his mind, so this whole debate was actually a waste of time. The end.
