I thought Obama came across as reasoned and reasonable, and treated McCain as any polite young man would treat a cranky senior who insisted on calling him a whippersnapper while recalling how he had to trudge five miles through the snow to go to school. Only instead of "whippersnapper," McCain used he word "naive" and instead of snow he made reference to his days as a POW. (Because, you know, he's really the only one who's ever fought for you....)
I was really surprised to see the pundits giving such McCain high marks after the debate, and it's not just because I don't want to see McCain and his Vagina win the election. I have to wonder if the media is just being kind because they know that the vice presidential debate is going to be so disastrous for McCain's Vagina that they'll be accused of Liberal Favoritism for calling it correctly. Well, all except for Fox News, which will declare victory for Sarah Palin even if Bristol breaks down halfway through the event and runs across the stage screaming, "Mama, give me back my baby!"
