Notes from the Debate - 1

McCain is being a jerk.  Over and over, he says "Senator Obama doesn;t understand ..." things that Obama obviously does understand.  It's a memorized talking point.

Meanwhile, he can't pronounce Ahmedinejad.  And he insists on smiling at inappropriate times.

As I was typing, he accused Obama of "parsing words," when citing Henry Kissinger.  Obama was not "parsing," as any student of grammar in the inflected languages could see.  He was talking about a much-publicized statement by Kissinger and several other foreign-policy experts, including Powell.  Seems McCain didn;t get the memo.
