Ok, I know I said I wasn’t going to get political on this blog but there’s some things I just have to say. As a disclaimer I have to admit that I fell asleep about 2/3 of the way into the debate. OK, is John McCain cracking up? He looked well, I’m just going to say it….all crazy eyed. WTF…..I think this campaign is really taking a toll on his health. He also sounded like a petulant child several times during the debate. It didn’t help that Obama was so self assured and controlled. I mean, seriously, at this point in the election it’s time to let go of all the finger pointing and really sell their programs. We know you disagree, don’t tell me why the other guys programs suck, just tell me why yours will work.
I loved the references to Joe the plumber…can anyone say sound bites? Urban dictionary tried to address the nebulous plumber with this entry.
October 16: Joe the Plumber
1: a fictional person representing the whole of the people; mostly the lower to middle class.
2: a political strategy where one side asks the other what he would do for the above mentioned.
1) man1: did you hear what’s happening to Joe the Plumber?
man2: yea, they’re increasing his taxes.
2) man1: so if you became president, what would you do for Joe the Plumber?
man2: well, i would give him a big taxbreak.

Apparently Joe really is a real guy. They showed some footage of Obama talking to him after the election. (I woke up at this point and dragged my ass from the recliner to my bed).
On a little aside, I was reading Cynthia’s blog, I am a Coconut, this morning and she mentioned photo booth. I forgot about that little feature of my new mac. Now you can all see exactly when I look like while I wax poetic on my blog. It’s never pretty!
