MFK: mccain starts out with a dig
Ethan: McCain looks so old
MFK: "good to be with you at a town hall meeting"

Jebson: bush said the same fucking thing during in his first address
MFK: mcain says we need to keep taxes low, stop giving $$ to countries who don’t like us
Ethan: let’s not raise taxes on anybody… today
TannerM: lotta cueballs in the audience tonight…
BrookeBook: My friend, can I sit in your lap and tell you what I’d do for your vote?
Casey: "Young Americans" to McCain isn’t a Bowie album, it’s everyone else in the room.
geoff: McCain–don’t let him raise taxes on me and my rich wife!
Jebson: Casey, i know you came up with that yesterday
Casey: G. Gordon Liddy fans, is my guess.
Casey: @Jebson: wink!
MFK: govt should buy up bad mortgages and renegotiate based on reduced values
BrookeBook: Ooh-1st my friends-drink!
TannerM: damn, take that brokow
MFK: mccain isn’t going to answer
ken: both these guys affiliated with political parties complicit in the tanking of our economy
ken: but let’s not talk about that
MFK: who would you choose?\
Casey: @ken: true enough
MFK: there you go
Jebson: he did some research
Casey: Ken would choose an evencrazier old man!
MFK: ebay created jobs!
BrookeBook: Don’t mention ebay-they’re laying off 10% of thir workers
ken: well if inspiring trust and confidence is the defining issue…
geoff: we can put junk mortgages up on eBay
ken: i’d have to say mccain is a weak option
Jebson: then it would be my grandpa
Casey: They should force Kucinich and Barr to run together. I’d vote for ’em.
BrookeBook: No more trickle down plans-O
Casey: Barry, stop saying he’s right!
MFK: stop saying mccain is right
Casey: Mos Def speaks!
MFK: it’s not bail out it’s rescue
Casey: ike McCain and Palin, they all look the same to me.
MFK: oh jeez
Ethan: Ooh, bringing up the suspended campaign. Please attack, Barry
MFK: i suspended my campaign to make sure the taxpayers were taken care of
BrookeBook: I flipped out, said I was suspending my campaign and made a mess and resolved nothing
Casey: And to change my adult diapers
MFK: it’s all fannie and freddie
Jebson: greed and excess, a natural trait inevitable in deregulated capitalism
MFK: obama has cronies
MFK: wow he’s getting nasty already
geoff: @ Casey–a lot ‘depends’ on that joke
Casey: McCain has crones.
MFK: he’s been in DC for 2 yrs, but his cronies are responsible for everything
ken: this is fairly accurate
MFK: it’s all fannie and freddie
TannerM: i blame fred and wilma myself.
geoff: attack the suspended campain, Barry!
Casey: Obama: can’t get a loan, can’t make payroll. That’s true, too. . .
BrookeBook: O explains clearly and simply
Ethan: bring it…
Jebson: be harsh o
Casey: "sen mccain has bragged about how he is a deregulator."
BrookeBook: I saw thw letter o wrote to them-worth reading.
ken: reregulate the deregulation
Casey: Revocate the Agitator!
Jebson: reregulate the conservative ideology
Casey: That’s a Deicide song.
Ethan: this is good
MFK: you don’t want to hear this bullshit, you want answers
Jebson: it’s all over the place
ken: not really
Casey: Talk right to ’em. Not bad.
Casey: What’s McCain scribblin’ over there?
TannerM: depends on what we do…. nice one
MFK: oooh mccain sais depends
ken: mccain — economy depends on what we do
Jebson: yes, it will get worse before it gets better…say it you p…..
ken: that is such bull
BrookeBook: McC-blowing bullshit sunshine up the nation’s ass-it’ll get better!
Casey: my friends!
ken: it doesnt matter what we do it is too late for that talk
Casey: We’re the best exporters? Of what?
Jebson: compliment the workers, fishing for votes
Casey: Video games, hollywood movies and porn.
TannerM: culture i believe…
BrookeBook: American may be productive, but we don’t produce anything anymore-china does
geoff: American wages stagnant or in relative decline for three decades…good reward for their efficiency
Casey: There you go ken: "both parties" question.
Casey: op stammering, Barry.
Casey: Running against Bush only gets you so far.
ken: obama — bush accelerated the debt that both parties contribute to
Jebson: 700 billion dollars could’ve gone a long way for health care and energy
Ethan: we are mortgaging our children’s future
MFK: real answers
Casey: @geoff: O should point that out.
Casey: mmcain: I understand why you feel cynicsm and mistrust
geoff: Herbert did in the Times today–usually that fact eludes coverage in the MSM
Casey: because I’ve been serving it to you for the last 4 months, ’round the clock.
MFK: attack attack attack
Casey: Yeah, Herbert is good people.
Jebson: what the fuck?
Casey: "I don’t expect you to watch every vote." McCain
Jebson: how much money goes into the fucking war?
Jebson: fuck off
Casey: what he means is his party doesn’t want you to watch ANY vote.
ken: how is the phrase "spending increase" even a dig anymore
geoff: just did
Casey: My friends!
MFK: what ARE those reforms?
Casey: legal drugggggz!
BrookeBook: McC-I know how to fix this economy-you could’ve fooled me.
MFK: brokaw’s gonna let mccain have the last word on that
ken: drop the gambling prohibition
Jebson: online-poker junky
Jebson: you just laid your cards on the table
Ethan: This is far from game changing so far
Jebson: bush said all this shit 8 years ago and energy policy stayed the same
BrookeBook: @ E true.
BrookeBook: Tom-O, could you answer my ?, since McC didn’t?
Casey: O: we’re gonna have to prioritize, just like a family has to prioritize.
ken: sounds like a republican
geoff: Audience members smiled when he mentioned 3.80 a gallon
MFK: in 10 years we can be free of mid eastern oil
Ethan: yeah, that was smart
Casey: @ken: yeah, I guess. More like Reagan.
MFK: just like going to the moon
Jebson: damn straight…health care, the most import issue of all
Casey: to the moon, palin!
Ethan: I wonder who Brokaw will punch first when they keep blatantly disregarding his rules
Casey: @Jebson: ??
Jebson: keypad problem
Casey: He’ll punch the clock.
ken: which one of these guys has taken a stand against universal health care
Jebson: import ant
Casey: What he’s been doing so far.
Casey: @ken: wrong room.
Casey: For them, I mean.
BrookeBook: A question from the internet-McC doesn’t understand
Casey: You’re fine. 😉
Jebson: mccain’s 5,000 dollar plan is retarded
geoff: "beware the military industrial complex"
Casey: @geoff: did he really bribe them wuth 4 buck gas? I missed that.
MFK: didn’t mccain ram the funding for the USS Teddy Roosevelt super carrier after carter killed it for being a waste of money?
geoff: @ Casey–he did. He said "here in Tenn you are paying 3.80"
Casey: Spending freeze, McCain reccomends.
BrookeBook: McC-spending freeze, that’ll fix it!
Casey: I reccomend antifreeze. In a tall glass. Cut with geritol.
TannerM: rifle shots…
MFK: earmarks – drink!
Jebson: so why haven’t we done that simple plan before?
Casey: Subtle, Johnboy.
Ethan: Well done mentioning rifle shots after Obama mentions Kennedy
Jebson: we won’t get to work today, jesus, so out of touch
BrookeBook: We’ll get to work right away, but not on anything that costs money.
Jebson: that was empty bullshit, McC
Casey: "we can get ’em all done? That’s what America’s been doing." WTF?
Jebson: the american people will not rally for anything until they’re 100% screwed
Casey: O: Some of you remember 9/11.
Casey: JUst some.
Ethan: @ Case, yeah that was a misspeak
ken: @ jeb, you said it
MFK: what happened on 9/11?
Casey: Some o you were really fuckin’ high.
BrookeBook: buying american
geoff: in the ’70s there were commercials on TV telling us to turn shit off when you left a room
MFK: we all have to make an effort
Jebson: sorry, Obama…I don’t feel like it today
Jebson: too much effort
ken: but shouldnt the gov’t just FORCE us to do the right thing?
Jebson: or at least legislate the "right thing"
ken: only what is good for us
MFK: brokaw -give specifics
Casey: @goff: Shit, my mom used to tell me that. "what, you want them to build another nuke plant?" she’d ask.
Jebson: the censored him
ken: that happened in the last debate too
geoff: @jebson–wardrobe malfunction?
BrookeBook: the audience looks sourly at both of them
Jebson: slip of the mouth
geoff: Ok, this is disappointingly vague and meandering
BrookeBook: O knows his slicing devices
Casey: O: I wanna use a scalpel.
TannerM: bama’s not getting to the point quick enough.
Jebson: it’s to be expected now, sadly
Casey: They’re both losing.
BrookeBook: OK-small business created jobs, but I’m sure they’re part of the job cuts, too.
BrookeBook: What a condescending ——
TannerM: just got a little ugly…
Jebson: how would that work, we’d go into deeper debt
TannerM: he was so proud of himself
Jebson: how can we fund wars without raising taxes?
ken: let him speak
ken: c’mon tom
MFK: what the fuck
BrookeBook: @jeb-I know-like when hillary used the change you can fax line.
MFK: just let mccain attack
geoff: young whippersnappers can’t respond!
ken: is it tom’s job to make sure this doesnt get meaningful
BrookeBook: @ ken touche!
BrookeBook: O-spelling it out-tax cut for 95% of you, people! It’s simple. 250k or less, cut.
Jebson: that should realistically work
ken: where does the 50% credit come from brooke
ken: it’s not that simple
MFK: mcccain’s tax plan is not fair
BrookeBook: @ken looking
TannerM: nah, not hard at at all…
MFK: mccain "i’ll answer the question"
MFK: Fuuuuuuuck you
Ethan: that just sounded so fucking desperate
Jebson: in the last 8 years?
Casey: "It’s not that hard to fix social security," my friend, sez McC
MFK: he never takes on his party!!!
Jebson: that would be me
BrookeBook: @ken-what’s simple is the tax cut vs. tax raise.
Ethan: the hollow laugh echoing through the building…
Jebson: i’ll join your party mcC
Casey: These guys gotta get their tiny cocks outta ronald reagan’s decomposed ass.
MFK: no… the lobbyists are working for YOu, john
Jebson: agreed, Casey
Jebson: is your vision the same as Palin’s?
ken-McC is misprepresenting, saying O is raising taxes, when he’s
really only raising taxes on top 5%. And now he grasps at these straws,
he voted to raise taxes, therefor, it doesn’t matter what he says,
he’ll raise your taxes.
ken: our best days won’t come for many years, if then
Jebson: cuz I like that future of america
MFK: Brokaw is bullshit
Casey: Our best days are ahead of us.
TannerM: hey hey ingrid
Casey: who’s the fox?
geoff: let’s keep never forget the struggle
Ethan: you and the black girls…
geoff: she’s in my third period class!
Jebson: obama should’ve blown a few lines of the devil’s dandruff before this
TannerM: … where was he going with that
ken: i agree with that brooke — mcC is weak
geoff: birds do it, bees do it
Casey: @geoff: DON’T SAY THAT.
geoff: "not just a challenge, an opportunity"–like it
Jebson: and those very people, McC, will be so flattered by that speech they’ll be sure to vote for you
TannerM: mccain write down on his paper…. "computer?"
Casey: Barry just said "the computer!"
Casey: Al Gore
ken: ok, obama makes a better republican than mccain
TannerM: slam city
BrookeBook: @ tanner, I liked the typo
Casey: Energy mix. Like chex mix, but m=global warmier.
TannerM: there’s more where that came from…
ken: pretty good answer there
Casey: Fund innovation.
Jebson: amateur hour
Casey: Brokaw. Dick
BrookeBook: Shut UP, Tom Asshole!
ken: total dick!
Casey: mannhattan-like project?
Casey: Brokaw asks. . .
Jebson: jesus christ
Ethan: what kind of a question was that? christ
BrookeBook: Interesting topic.
BrookeBook: It’s for ppl. like casey and me.
Casey: @ken: Govt intervention is appropriate, sez McCain
ken: pork pork pork
MFK: that one>
Jebson: these pork barrel spendsations
Casey: Sit down, boy.
TannerM: that there shoe shine boy
geoff: bridge to the nowhere gap!
Jebson: i love drinking games that involve red wine
ken: i loathe him
MFK: McCain is being a bastard tonight
TannerM: nice part lindsay.
geoff: notice how Brokaw laughed but the audience is curiously silent
MFK: and Brokaw is letting him
Ethan: But he doesn’t look commanding he just looks prickish
Jebson: health care is a necessity
Casey: @geoff: tough crowd, fer sure.
Jebson: not me
Casey: Not even winkin’ would work.
TannerM: o needs to tighten it up.
geoff: push for nationalized health care–in polls 70% want it
Jebson: has to be done
Jebson: yes, mcC’s health plan, as I said, is retarded
Jebson: they’ll spend that money on porn, cigs, and coors
Casey: Don’t worry, ken. You can opt out. But you still ave to pay taxes.
ken: health care is a very complicated issue
geoff: @Jebson–porn is free now
ken: not something you can detail the success of in a minute
Casey: @goeff: don’t tell him THAT!
ken: do i get to harrass people who aren’t taking care of themselves?
geoff: "let’s put health records online"–so long as they’re not MINE
ken: does the government get to tell us what we can and can’t eat?
BrookeBook: @ ken, but he did cover a lot of territory in a short time. Pooling costs, pre-existing conditions, etc.
Jebson: ken, let’s be
honest…everyone in this country could have the most amazin plans if
we used all that money for war and bailing out financial cos
geoff: @ken–they tell me what I can and can’t smoke1
Jebson: all that money we’re blowing, that is, on the war and bail outs
Casey: McCain: obama says "govt will do this, govt will do that."
ken: he put in a good effort brooke, but i still didn’t get enough info to make an intelligent judgement
Casey: He was just fucking touting expanded govt.
Jebson: yeah, that’s the bullshit about preventative medicine
BrookeBook: @ ken, I know, but check his website. I think he has a full plan online.
ken: the governemtn is supposed to spend our money on military though
Ethan: He’s talking about residents of Tenn going to AZ for healthcare?
ken: it’s one of their primary roles
MFK: this sounds like an opportunity for predatory insurance policies
Casey: @geoff: or my running mate’s who apparently has that immaculate conception thing all figured out.
Ethan: HAIR TRANSPLANTS?
Ethan: WHAT THE FUUUUUCK
Casey: I mean Virgin Birt.
Ethan: This is miserable
geoff: Biden’s plugs are covered!
TannerM: Ethan, he’s a maverick, it’s what he does.
Casey: What’s become of my catholicism?
Ethan: I want to beat his maverick ass
ken: @ brooke – i will after the debate
geoff: @ Casey–Nigerian witchcraft healers are covered
BrookeBook: Ken, here you go
Jebson: the military budget is complicated ken
Jebson: Geoff, i think he’s from Kenya
MFK: do PEOPLE understand the insurance industry?
Jebson: put country first? health care should be top priority if that’s the case
reason I get the great health care at my current job is that it’s
tax-free. Under McC, he would tax that, hurting this small business.
Casey: @geof: Zing!
MFK: my mother died haggling w/ insurance companies
geoff: @ Jebson–you are correct–I just Googled.
Casey: Life is complicated, ken. We’re not single-cell organisms. Most of us, anyway.
BrookeBook: @MFK so did O’s.
Jebson: i’m into witch-doctors
BrookeBook: And I’m sorry.
Jebson: and i’m really into glossalalia
MFK: no… my mom’s ok
MFK: i was quoting
ken: finally, obama on the offensive
geoff: My great grandpa was a Hex healer
Ethan: about time
BrookeBook: @MFK-good to hear.
Jebson: he rounded off hexagons?
geoff: using chicken legs
Casey: I sound so pedantic.
geoff: "everybody goes to Delaware"
Jebson: you sound like a pederast
Casey: WTF!!!!! Credit cards! Delaware!
Casey: There ya go, Geoff!
TannerM: shorten it up O.
BrookeBook: Oh, so tom lets McC slide in jokes?
Ethan: and again laughs while no one else does
TannerM: Tom loves a good one.
MFK: tom’s full of fail tonight
Casey: That’s not all he lets mccain slide in.
MFK: not moderating
BrookeBook: activist moderator
geoff: "peacemakers" –except for those Nazi death-squads I loved in Central and South America in the ’80s
Jebson: Brooke, is that an activists/dictators reference?
TannerM: we are good. we’re just, such goodies, i feel good, do you feel good?
MFK: mccain is being a COCKSUCKER
geoff: actually, John, Georgia attacked South Ossetia FIRST
MFK: and tom just changes the subject after letting mccain attack
Ethan: he tossed the mic and pointed at the crowd
Casey: House on the hill, thousand points of light gibbersih.
BrookeBook: @ Jeb,
no, activist judges ref. No one gets up in arms abotu activist
moderators. If he’d been a community organizer, that’d be a different
Casey: Do it, Barry.
Jebson: god, that would be great
Jebson: let’s head for the woods
ken: hey jeb, when was the last time you read the bill of rights?
Jebson: raise the deer heart skyward
Jebson: jesus, years ago
Jebson: i’ve been reading a lot of the Frech lately
ken: check out the last article
Casey: "there’s never been a country in the world who has seen its economy in decline and its military stay intact."
TannerM: there we go. well put, succinct.
ken: hey, at least we still have high definition tv
geoff: Somalia DOES have national security issues…Al Qaeda was there, and remains there
Jebson: is it ratification, ken?
Casey: @ ken:I have two, actually.
Casey: what’s yr beef?
Casey: You have an iPod?
Casey: A computer?
Casey: Buy books ever?
MFK: how come mccain gets followups?
Casey: Participate in any way in a the non-essential aspects of our economy?
Casey: Go to bars?
Jebson: whatever that means
Casey: Purchase the occasional hooker?
Casey: Oops, too far.
MFK: WHAT IS WINNING? – deanna
BrookeBook: @MFK, because he gives followupa offstage.
MFK: "that requires a cool hand at the tiller" ironic
Casey: McCain: cool hand dupe.
geoff: I hate withdrawing in humiliation
Ethan: Reagan again
Casey: stood up to his hero, reagan.
TannerM: sending american blood into harms way…
Casey: Hard to stand up with a dick in your ass.
Jebson: here we go
TannerM: could have said that a little better.
MFK: mccain – i will keep you safe FEARFEARFEAR
ken: i don’t have high def, but i don’t hold it against you casey
MFK: " I need to make sure we don’t leave"
geoff: The F Section
Casey: I mean, they’re like fucking toasters. China gives me cheap stuff, I make bankers rich. . . we’re all complicit.
ken: that wasn’t the intent of my commentary
Ethan: Yeah Cambodia!
Casey: Can’t make fun of consumer technology.
ken: hope you didnt go into debt to buy them though
geoff: answer the question, O
Casey: Holiday in Cambodia!
Casey: ope you didn’t go in debt for your education. 😉
Ethan: O is being so longwinded
Jebson: what’s ridiculous is that this is the question mcC should be answering after that last military-praise
ken: i think that education is more valuable than tvs though…
Casey: One man’s opinion.
Jebson: what about the discovery channel?
ken: comedy network
Casey: @Ethan: yeah.
TannerM: Walk softly
Ethan: I thought his hero was Ronald Reagan
Jebson: and the history channel, pbs, bbc, bet
Casey: McCain has a lot of heroes. With big sticks.
geoff: Public opinion in Pakistan is SO pro-US, John
ken: nesn, fox, usa
BrookeBook: I think McC looks like a smug ass, just like last time, and I suspect it will turn people off.
MFK: he didn’t say that he was going to attack pakistan, he said he was going to attack BIN LADEN
Ethan: @ Brooke: I agree.
Ethan: @ MFK: exactly. very important distinction
Jebson: the taliban…so conservative with their wholesome social traditions…
ken: have a fucking follow up
Casey: fine with me. fine with me. McCain is such a DICK!
Casey: And their lovely poppy fields. Just like in the Wizard of Oz.
BrookeBook: Nice malaprop O-green behind the ears
TannerM: lol, watch that smile fly off his face…
Casey: used bomb bomb bomb iran bit last time.
geoff: needs new material
Jebson: good stuff barack
ken: sit down, grandpa
Ethan: That was a great answer though
Ethan: Total bullshit that Tom is giving McCain the final word on everything
Casey: wah. I want equal time, john.
Jebson: respect your elders
Casey: Old veteran friend.
MFK: that was a lie
Casey: Yeah, sure. Fuckin’ answer to everything.
MFK: mccain knows how to get them?
MFK: why hasn’t he done it yet
ken: "osama? i’ll get him"
Casey: WE’RE ENGAGING W/PAKISTAN NOW!
geoff: I’ll attack Pak, I just won’t SAY it
Ethan: b/c he won’t tell anyone!
BrookeBook: He keeps saying he knows how to get bin laden–then you’re a traitor for not telling the military how to get him RIGHT NOW.
Casey: t gonna telegraph his punches like he did with the financial crisis.
geoff: He uses the telegraph because he can’t email
BrookeBook: @geoff NICE!
geoff: thanks. The bourbon helps
Casey: always does.
ken: anyone notice the little trick mccain does with the mic, after he’s done speaking?
MFK: we have to have the same strategy???
Casey: Puts it in his butt with reagan’s decomposed cock?
MFK: mountains vs desert
MFK: you’re kidding
Ethan: He pointed at the crowd once too. He’s like Mick Jagger up on stage
geoff: The surge=allowing ethnic cleansing to happen, then paying the parties loads of cash to police cleared neighborhoods
ken: i want to see a leg kick
Casey: @ethan: or mike love.
MFK: @ geoff : exactly
Jebson: trouble-making reprobates
Ethan: @ Case: totally. Mike Love’s decomposing cock
geoff: Hey John, Georgia is repressive too–see today’s Times
Casey: Everyon’es always looking into Putin’s eyes. Which are, admittedly, pretty.
ken: watch the mic…
MFK: how are we going to stand up militarily to russians>? with our nukes?
ken: do your trick john
BrookeBook: He’s waaaay over the minute mark.
MFK: that’s all we got right now unless there’s a draft
ken: tom’s decomposed cock
BrookeBook: But not a peep from Tom.
Casey: I am tom’s seething, decomposed cock.
geoff: our allies in Europe are not at all disturbed by OUR behavior, John
Jebson: c’mon, tom and john are obviously going to the same Lodge meeting afterwards
MFK: oh noooow keep track of the time
TannerM: was there a mic glitch?
Casey: cmon O. . . keep it on pint.
Ethan: And keep short
Casey: Or pint, I dunno. Joe Six Pack would identify.
Jebson: nah, pint’s too european
Jebson: baiting mcC
Jebson: with a reagan quote
Casey: yes or no. Dumb question.
MFK: russia MAYBE is an evil empire
Ethan: this is the stupidest debate
Jebson: they should really have bill maher mediate
MFK: @ jeb – spot on!
BrookeBook: @ J that would be a real debate
geoff: @Ethan–I agree. This is the worst
Casey: @geoff: callback!
Casey: @jeb: yep.
Ethan: what’s up chunk!
BrookeBook: Terry sherry!
Jebson: alright, some real time fans here
Jebson: that is the most disgusting political move
geoff: I’m gonna puke
Ethan: i just threw up all over my keyboard
MFK: you are fucking kidding me
Casey: cueball likes the military.
ken: i was disgusted when i logged on
Casey: Shake that hand.
Jebson: just cup his balls
Jebson: while you’re at it
Ethan: @ Ken: but that was just the company
ken: that was horrible
ken: no i like you guys, really
MFK: wait… doesn’t israel have 2nd strike capabilities already?>
TannerM: ahhh here we go… preconditions
ken: it’s them, not you
geoff: abridge to nowhere
Jebson: if obama had served in the military this election would be over
Ethan: Mic trick: drink!
ken: mic trick!
TannerM: what is this mic trick?
ken: glad someone saw it
ken: wait for it tanner
Ethan: He does it every time
geoff: drops it through one hand and catches in the other
TannerM: … neato
Casey: totally ruined it for me.
ken: it’s more interesting than he is
Casey: I was sooooo hopig to see him hide it somewhere.
geoff: Israel has the third or fourth most powerful military in the world–an Iranian attack would be suicidal.
Ethan: I think Barry’s
going over time on purpose: convince crowd you have so much
information, so many deep thoughts, these topics deserve real time, etc.
Jebson: for fuck’s sake
Casey: last question. From the internet! zen?
Jebson: zen wrapped in hugs wrapped in chocolate
Jebson: or whatever
Jebson: i wasn’t being racist there
geoff: "anywhere else in this country"?
MFK: obama – we are losing the american dream
TannerM: @ jeb – lol
MFK: mccain – "i don’t know what’s going to happen"
Ethan: Deep, John. Deep.
ken: mccain — i don’t know how to bomb in the future
TannerM: both new & different, no shit…
MFK: what i don’t know is what the unexpected will be
Jebson: jesus, being raised by your mother is dark times?
Casey: we’ll be talking about countries in the future that most americans (including bush) cant find on a map.
Casey: @jeb: can be.
Jebson: you already said that tiller shit
MFK: i’ll say the final word…
MFK: FUCK YOU TOM BROKAW
Jebson: october 15th, can’t wait
geoff: You’re in my way
BrookeBook: You’d made everythign that you just said a lie in the last week.
TannerM: wow, and with that final fuck-up Tom, you suck.
Ethan: well done everyone. i will sleep under a cloud of depression
ken: i can’t even say that was disappointing
Casey: What an asshole Brokaw
Jebson: Couric’s commentary…always good
Jebson: "awkward camera angles"
MFK: gregory : didn’t hear charactor attacks?
Casey: i like the way mccain hugs cindy like a fucking mannequin prop
geoff: I can’t foresee how the pundits will call this–so bland
Ethan: @ MFK: yeah, what was that about
Casey: cuz she is a fucking mannequin prop
Jebson: no knockout punches…
Jebson: kimbo got beat the other night
Ethan: She’s a really rich mannequin prop
Jebson: nevermind that shit
Casey: @jebson. Never is. Hope Barry figures out a coup de grace before election day.
Jebson: yeah, there’s only one more chance, right?
ken: that was the highlight — obama going after AIG
MFK: that format blew
TannerM: lol, not you tom.
Jebson: let’s bet on soundbytes
Casey: @jeb: one more chance. But the states are awesome.
MFK: anyone watching cbs?
BrookeBook: "That one."
Jebson: yeah, i am
MFK: you know who voted on it? "that one"
Ethan: If pundits don’t talk about how Obama stuck to the details while McCain shivved with stupid biting jokes
BrookeBook: Could be his bush/ferraro moment.
Ethan: * I will be pissed
Jebson: hahahaha, that one
Ethan: what moment? (for those of us not on cbs)
Jebson: this is such a perot moment
Jebson: shut up, weird, randomly picked americans in director’s chairs
Casey: "that one."
Casey: @jeb: HA!
BrookeBook: @ they’re the mannequins.
ken: he cleaned up nice
Casey: Wooodsy Owl.
Casey: Tom Bombadil
Jebson: is there really a LOTR reference in this chatroom?
Ethan: Too little too late, suckas
Casey: uh-oh. rachel and buchannan
MFK: republican strategist scored obama higher on cnn
Jebson: what a fragile child you are, ethan covey
Jebson: did you spill some wine on your bib?
geoff: I’m so glad that Michelle doesn’t wear suits–a saucy red dress is a nice change
Ethan: @ Jeb: no character attacks
Jebson: damn, it’s no fun trying to start shit on an online chat
Jebson: not quite the same
Ethan: any early polls up?
Casey: @geoff: no sit!
geoff: @Casey–could be shorter, tho
Ethan: in how well Jeb is succeeding at starting online shit with the fellow commentators?
MFK: well the liberal blogs say obama won, the conservative blogs say mccain won
geoff: @MFK–just like Rachel and Pat
Ethan: what does The Contrarian Media say?
BrookeBook: Andrew sullivan says:
pm. This was, I think, a mauling: a devastating and possibly
electorally fatal debate for McCain. Even on Russia, he sounded a
little out of it. I’ve watched a lot of debates and participated in
many. I love debate and was trained as a boy in the British system to
be a debater. I debated dozens of times at Oxford. All I can say is
that, simply on terms of substance, clarity, empathy, style and
authority, this has not just been an Obama victory. It has been a
wipe-out.It has been about as big a wipe-out as I can remember in a
presidential debate. It reminds me of the 1992 Clinton-Perot-Bush
debate. I don’t really see how the McCain campaign survives this.
Casey: of course sullivan is a gay conservative who lives in liberal DC.
geoff: Sullivan tends to over-enthuse and then pull back later when he finds out he’s wrong. I hope he’s right
Casey: Contarian Media sez: meh.
Casey: Prediction: furter poll slippage for MCCain. . .
Ethan: I hope Brooke is right
Ethan: @ Casey: I concur
Casey: followed by a quick tightening as the ads go hyper-negative nuclear.
ken: mccain hurt himself here
Jebson: One way to help our economy: fire the pundits
Casey: Then a Barry win on E-Day.
Jebson: it’s a start
BrookeBook: @ C I hope it follows that path.
geoff: I think in McCain’s preferred format that O simply had to do OK. He did OK.
Jebson: hope you’re right C
ken: remember, people won’t rally unless things get really bad
Casey from x.x.x.162 joined the chat 10 minutes ago
ken: so this election is a win-win
Ethan: O definitely held his own and potentially even won
Jebson: or a lose-lose
Jebson: but I side with O cuz I’m biased
Casey: We’re talking about a finite thing here: who’s gonna win?
TannerM: timely "W" trailer during the comercial break.
Casey: And I think there’s a point of no return approaching.
geoff: @caught that too Tanner
BrookeBook: @ C I’m with you.
ken: obama is going to win
Jebson: he better
Casey: State-by-state polls harden, like Reagan’s decomposed cock. . .
Jebson: but I’m still pessimistic
TannerM: ok, i’m being lured away from the internets by promises of red wine
Casey: New voter reg kicks in. . .
ken: but never fear, obama fans…
