the best moment of the debates

john SIDNEY mccain, a former prisoner of war, has had many great moments in the three presidential debates. he had his blinking, his wandering all over the stage, enough fake grins to please any grandmother, his eye rolling, smirks, deep breathing, and of course his blinking.

but tonight's moment beats them all.

a little preface:

the real star of tonight's debate was joe the plumber. i'm not exactly who this guy is, but if he ever gets his plumbing business going he just needs to call it "joe the plumber" and he will bring in millions.

as he has done in previous debates, john SIDNEY mccain, a former prisoner of war, accused obama of fining small business who did not provide health care for their employees. bringing joe back into the debate, mccain, a former prisoner of way, says:

"Now, Joe, Sen. Obama's plan, if you're a small business and . . . if you're out there, my friend, and you've got employees, and you've got kids, if you don't get -- adopt the health care plan that Sen. Obama mandates, he's going to fine you.

"Now, Sen. Obama, I'd like -- still like to know what that fine is going to be, and I don't think that Joe right now wants to pay a fine when he is seeing such difficult times in America's economy."

mccain, a former prisoner of war, is feeling pretty confident now. he's got obama right where he wants him and is sporting a wide grin of confidence.

but wait!

watch mccain, a former prisoner of war, react to obama's answer (especially his eyes).



i was just pointed out this runner up for the best moment. it was taken right at the end of the debate when mccain, a former prisoner of war, realized he was walking the wrong direction. i think it best describes the debate, as well as this election.

the poor old guy is just lost and confused


  1. thanks for this post- i only wish you had more time to post more! i wasn't able to watch the debate tonight so thanks for a highlight.

  2. I just have to say that the fact you said "former prisoner of war" 5 times in one post is amazing. i actually kept forgetting so it was nice to have the reminder. :)

  3. I do sort of, kind of feel bad for McCain though... I mean the poor old guy...
    We don't have tv, so listening to it on the radio we missed out on all the blinking. That's too bad.

  4. we need to find and edit this with some funny sound effects that they use in cartoons whenever someone get's thrown for a loop...this is absolutely priceless.

  5. typical right-wing hatemonger10/16/2008 10:16 AM

    i guess i do not see what is so priceless about mccain being astonished at "senator government's" ability to lie. how "senator government" was able to flat out lie about his own policies is amazing. as the owner of a small business i already have plans in place to 'compensate' if "senator government" gets elected. i already know which employee is getting fired (i currently have 6) and i already know which services i am raising prices on. all to compensate for the increased tax burden "senator government" is bringing with him. either that or be out of business 20 months after "senator government" gets his tax bill passed. if "senator obama" gets elected watch unemployment go up along with the price of services. that should really help out our economy.

  6. so Obama was smooth and McCain was well......not so smooth.

  7. hahaha this just makes me want to hug McCain. he is so cute! i pull faces like that all the time. hahaha. oh Hatemonger, how can you not think his faces are amusing? cute cuddely grandpa with funny faces to go with his great stories. (not trying to be sarcastic, i really think he is cute.)
