[The following is a reprint of an article first written on September 27, 2008]
The debate last night in Oxford Mississippi, between John McCain and Barack Obama, sounded more like a bickering session than a debate, a re-hashing and squabbling over the same things we have been listening to for the past 18 months. A repetition of the same abysmal mediocrity we have been hearing. McCain in his dull monotone, repeating the same ole rhetoric was very boring. Obama, more spritely energetic, kept rudely interrupting, and acted like he wanted to lunge at McCain as he kept repeating the same old socialist line of taxing the rich to take care of the poor. I did not listen to entire program, but turned it off before they finished, I was so tired of listening to the same old stuff.
