Town Hall Will Lead To Mass Debate

By Wyatt Earp | October 7, 2008

Tonight’s Presidential debate will make for interesting theater . . . if you’re an insomniac. The Town Hall-inspired battle will take place in Nashville, Tennessee, and will probably generate a lot of interest - but not from me. I’ll be catching up on my TiVo playlist, since I haven’t watched this week’s episode of Heroes yet.

Of course, there event will include the usual attacks, one-liners, and zingers. Most of them are not my cup of tea, but there is a way the candidates can grab my attention . . .

Top Ten Lines I Want To Hear At Tonight’s Debate
10. “A vote for me is a vote for change.” - Obama
9. “Vote for me: I’ll put the country first.” - McCain
8. “That Dolly Parton has some big breasts.” - Obama
7. “If elected President, I promise to kill Osama bin Laden on live TV.” - McCain
6. “Senator Obama, why are your lips so blue?” - Moderator
5. “Hey, beer man!” - Audience Member
4. “I am not a Muslim. I am something worse: a Scientologist.” - Obama
3. “I am just like George Bush, except I can pronounce ‘nuclear.’” - McCain
2. “I am currently banging Sarah Palin.” - Obama

And the number one line I want to hear at tonight’s debate is . . .

1. “As a rookie Senator, I voted for slavery, before I voted against it.” - McCain

    I am on the fence about tonight’s debate. I have a full Tivo list ready to watch, but I also plan to head over to Conservative Bell’s site if I decide to watch to join in on the real fun… live blogging.

    I’ll watch…but I’d rather go to sleep.

    I’ll watch later. Instead I’m making grilled cheese sandwiches and soup for my wife, then we’re continuing to watch the 3rd season of “The Shield” on DVD. Then we’re going to bed. Ho-hum.

    I might watch some of the debate, but there’s a new episode of The Shield on at 10. Wouldn’t miss that for anything that doesn’t require a trip to the emergency room.

    Really…Tom Brokaw. C’mon, I can’t get past his impediment. Lots of LLLLLL’s

    Hey Tom, shut the F- up about time constraints….douche.

    Judging what I saw, this exchange leads to McCain’s best Hillary impression, followed by Obama’s best Reagan impression, followed by scores of millions of Americans still left with the impression that neither of these District of Columbia American Idol wannabees actually personally believe in less government and more personal responsibility.

    It did not even resemble a debate.

    They believe in ratings shares, sound bites and being the person who should carry our federal purse, without looking gay.

    Sarah Palin seems to be the only one that can hold a purse and pull a high-calibre diseased brain clearing weapon out of it, when required.

    Sorry, Mac, but your global warming personality, porky bailout hypocrisy and shaky aisle crossing leaves me…

    Randal - agreed. Brokaw harped about those time constraints…and then was all “you’re blocking my script!” at the end.

    In all a boring debate.

    I spent the debate time watching the Three Stooges.

    Deanna - Liveblogging a debate. Try and stay awake. :)

    GroovyVic - I ended up writing my FSM article. Couldn’t even catch up on Heroes. Damn.

    BZ - Love that show, but I was so tired that I didn’t stay up to watch it last night.

    John D - Gonna watch it tonight. So far, this season has been as great as the previous ones.

    Randal - I always thought Brokaw was a douche. I thought it was just me.

    Insol - Won’t matter anyway. Like I’ve said here a hundred times already, Obama WILL win this election - probably in a landslide, because too many people are voting like it’s American Idol.

    GroovyVic - Glad I missed it, then.

    Ky person - But there were only two stooges in this debate!

    “because too many people are voting like it’s American Idol.”

    Rick Davis did say that it’s not about the issues, right?

  12. Wyatt Earp Says:

    Randal - When was the last election you remember that was actually about issues and not catfighting and a popularity contest? Far too many voters are uninformed of the issues, so they make their decisions based on the MSM, or radio talk shows.

  13. Says:

    I agree. It’s just that you sound surprised that people will vote like American Idol.

    After the last 2 weeks of financial collapse, I think that a lot of people as swinging towards Obama just because he’s not a Republican, like our current President; they want something different.

    Is Bush the only one to blame: of course not. Think of it like a football team: when the team tanks, everyone calls for the head of either the manager/coach of the QB, even if it’s not their fault.

    Don’t worry, in 4 or 8 years everyone may be looking for Obama’s head on a plate, too….or maybe not.

    Randal - I’m not really surprised, it’s just disheartening that so many people don’t take voting as seriously as they should. It should always be about the issues at hand. I know that’s naive, but still . . .

    Two things about the “debate:”

    1 - Can Obama EVER give a direct answer to a question without meandering around the context for 5 minutes?? No wonder the guy is so popular, no one’s paying attention to his remarks!

    2 - Obama said “I’ll do whatever is required of me to get XXX done” several times. OK,..required by whom? Congress? the Constitution? The Untied Nations? Bill Ayres??

    More empty words and obfuscation!

    And he’s leading by 5+ points in the polls!
