FULL DISCLOSURE: I was at home, not at work and watching the debate at home. This is just my comments while watching the debate.
8:04–Q 1: no shit, we’re worried about the economy.
8:09–Q 1: Uncommitted Ohio voters don’t seem thrilled w/ McCain’s treasury secretary option
8:12–Q 2: McCain is very assumptive. We know who the fuck Fannie & Freddie were *before* the shit hit the fan with the “rescue.” And *he* called it bailout before “rescue.”
8:17–Q 1: Meg Whitman was the CEO of EBAY from March ’98 to March ’08. And EBay just laid off 1000 employees according to @TChed on twitter.
8:19–Question 3: “Look” is not a good term to say. I learned that in customer care training. Doesn’t endear you to the person querying.
8:26–Q 4: So McCain’s main priority is energy? Obama is energy, health care, education, earmarks
8:30–Q 5: Freeze spending on education for war, McCain?
8:36–Q 6: Protectionism: there goes the mangoes.
8:42–Q 7: McCain says he will answer but he hasn’t answered. WTF?!
8:46–Bullshit on the 94 times vote for tax cuts and we do need alternatives for energy
8:49–Quit acting like catty teenagers & answer the question, both of you.
8:51–McCain is acting squirrelly. Sit down.
8:54–The goddamn $5000 credit will be spent to pay the other bills! So how the fuck does that help?!
8:59–Did the women on the grid fall off? No, they are justs really high up there.
9:01–So, building more nuclear plants will make us more secure in the long run? I don’t think so. My worry, on 9/11, was Oak Ridge being bombed.
9:08–Can we say no to another Vietnam, please?
9:11–If you talk loudly, can you have a big stick? Please elaborate.
9:21–I started tweeting. Will post the tweets also.
9;25–Sidenote: What do people do in Russia? My friends’ answer? Drink vodka, pirate music & wrestle bears.
9:30–LAST QUESTION: What don’t you know & how will you learn it? My question: Is this all inclusive?
9:48–all done. I’m kind of aggravated.
