Rome, NY Sucks

But At Least We're Not Utica

That's the percentage of FOX viewers who thought McCain won the debate tonight. The other news networks did not air a poll of their own. FOX News has an audience almost evenly split between Republicans, Democrats and Independents.

When I first learned about debating in high school, one of the important things you learned is not to concede to your opponent. Obama did that 8 times. McCain pointed out why Obama was wrong 7 times. Most of Obama's critcisms were focused on the Bush Administration. McCain named a half dozen issuses on which he disagreed with Bush on so strongly that they were news stories.

Now, debates can be scored by defining victory down. And if not babbling like an idiot is victory, well, Obama was still only a draw. In reality, if they were playing par, McCain walked away with the gold belt.

    No way, No how, did McCain win the debate at all, Period! Obama acted presidential all the way, addressed the issues confronting the American People, while McCain kept attacking Obama. McCain won on points for aggression but He lost the debate on issues addressed.
