Stretch Out and Wait
I am so happy that the debates are over. If I have to hear either Barack Obama or John McCain hammer their talking points six inches beneath the ground again, I might not be be able to resist the urge to break things. While the latter ones bothered me more than the former, I am increasingly numb to being outraged by the candidates going through the motions. Perhaps the Big Lie really is just a function of repetition. I'm sure a lot of viewers agreed with my sense that the only interesting moments of last night's affair were when McCain looked angry and Obama made a show of turning his frustration into bemusement. At this point, going on body language actually seems less superficial than responding to the tetra-packed issues.

Couldn't agree more.

I didn't watch last night's, but from what I've seen of the previous ones, the debates have done nothing but hurt both sides (especially the VP one).

Body language is always very telling. It's only superficial in the literal sense. I have only seen parts of the debates (due to work schedule, mostly), but I fully agree with you.

I love your well-placed nods to good music.

I agree. How can we consciously contemplate?
