WASHINGTON (CNN ) -- Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain will participate in Friday night's debate with his Democratic rival, Sen. Barack Obama, McCain campaign staff said.
The drama queen will debate, as if there was any real doubt.* And think about it. He does well, that proves he can multitask. He does badly, he's got the perfect excuse. After all, the country comes before...the country.
Y'know, he's been going around acting like a jerk the past umpteenth days/weeks/months/years/millenia and we've been hearing alllllllllllllllllll about it. Meanwhile, scooting under the radar, Barack Obama has very calmly gone about his job. We all heard that McCain hardly said a word during the Most Historic Photo-Op Ever but buried in the back of some articles was the report that Obama "peppered Paulson with questions." Bad alliteration to one side, that's what a president's supposed to do: bring an informed, inquiring mind to a complex discussion. Obama doesn't look cool in this. He simply looks like he knows exactly what he's doing.
This is going to be good, folks.
I know most of you probably have other plans for tonight, but if you do, I hope that you take the time out this weekend to review what was said by both candidates in the debate.
I don't think I have to remind SFDB readers of everything that is going on in today's world. The importance of this election can not be emphasized enough and the debates provide you an opportunity to observe both candidates think on their feet and express their views without teleprompters or speechwriters to assist them.
Please consider taking some time out from your schedule tonight to become better educated about both candidates.
