Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way

McCain vs. Obama: To the Extreme!

I’m still reeling from McCain’s awful speech from Tuesday night. It had all the passion and spirit of an elementary school production of "Stone Soup." The stiffness. The pauses as he struggled with the prompter. The overly rehearsed meter and intonation. That nervous smile (your mouth says, "yes, yes," John, but your eyes say, "no, no, no"). I expect more from McCain; nay, I demand more!

This is why I love that the candidates are considering more debates than the traditional Big Three. See, McCain was all:

“What’s up with having to wait until September to debate? Let’s get this party started with some Town Hall Meetings.”

Then Obama was all:

“I see your Town Hall Meetings and raise you one: Let’s get all Lincoln-Douglas on each other.”

Then McCain was all:

“Hmm, I’m not sure about that, but I’ll consider it.”

And Obama was all:

“OK, cool. I’ll have my people call your people.”

I’d like to see both formats used. Let’s light this candle.
