OK, here's the mandatory "who won the debate" column, featuring the above photo of the two Presidential candidates duking it out. No, wait, those are kangroos, and thus much smarter and higher on the food chain than the two candidates.

I must confess I could not make it through the entire "presidential" debate myself. I was in an out, doing important stuff like reloading some .30-06 and/or picking my nose. I couldn't stand to just sit and watch for fear of losing my cookies or my mind.

The few things that I did notice was that one did not have to check McCain for a pulse this go-round. He even got in a few zingers, like "Senator Government". Some (namely the Drive-by Media) complained about his "mean-spirited" attacks in regards to Obama's pal, mentor, and possible ghost writer former violent terrorist/current educational terrorist Bill Ayers. Then again, Juan wouldn't need to even bring it up if the talking heads spent approximately 1/150th of the time on that story as they did on the horrors of "Troopergate". At least Palin's state troopers are still above ground, which is more than one can say for the troopers who worked the Arkansas governor's detail awhile back.

Obama said nothing, as usual, but dang he says it so well. So, 95% of us will get a tax cut???? Oh, and yeah, the sun will always shine and the sky will be filled with bluebirds and butterflies atop the Big Rock Candy Mountain. He wants to be and do everything for everybody, never mind we can't pay for the BS programs we have now, and keeps beating the same old "class envy" drum we've heard for how many decades now? Government is our saviour, government will fix everything. It would seem that the "Trickle Down Economics" of the Reagan Administration would be replaced with Obama's fiscal policy of "Trickle Up Poverty".

The handful of Republicans I know who will still admit to being such have long been wondering when McCain was going to "go on the offensive". I can see why all he had to go on the offense with was Barack's long line of shady/crazy/terrorist/muslim/socialist wacko "acquaintances". Just imagine if Juan really did go on the attack about the issues.

MCCAIN: You're against the Second Amendment and support more gun control!

OBAMA: You're the one who wanted to ban the private sale of firearms.

MCCAIN: You helped bail out bloated irresponsible lending institutions on the taxpayer's dime.

OBAMA: You did too. Twice. Remember the S&L Scandal of the 80's?

MCCAIN: You would allow a flood of more illegal aliens into the country.

OBAMA: Oh, come on. That one is tooo easy.

So, I doubt the big debate changed many minds. We won't know about this one till the fat lady sings. The polls have been notoriously inaccurate previous to presidential elections about as long as I have been alive. Of course, it doesn't help with the media meatheads always trying to skew the polls with unanswerable questions like, "Have you stopped beating your wife yet?"

It would be nice to see the media's blatant Obama pandering blow up in their faces. I'm starting to hear people saying they're not voting for McCain but voting against the mainstream media. I gotta admit I would find that pretty hilarious.

Either way, whoever won the debate and whoever wins the election, we lose. But both sides have been destroying this country brick by brick for better than thirty years anyway. So we're just gonna go hunting and camping, visit family this winter, and keep our faith in the One who's really in charge.
