Thought this was quite funny, hat tip to Maddow on MSNBC.

I find it hard to believe Sarah Palin doesn’t believe in dinosaurs considering her running mate is living proof.

McCain wasn’t as shaky as I thought he would be, but he didn’t outline a vision.  Cutting spending and reducing taxes isn’t a vision, it’s a gimmick.  His stop all spending, with the exception of defense, veterans, and entitlement programs, seemed impulsive and rash.  He clearly doesn’t understand the focus of concern in the war on terror.  He seems to perceive, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran as distractions to the war on Iraq when it is actually the other way round.  McCain held his own, but he was supposed to crush Obama because of his knowledge of international affairs.  Obama conceded too many points and should have gone after the surge issue, by stating that McCain was in Iraq saying how peaceful and wonderful things were six months before the surge started.  If this was the case, why the surge?  I could nit-pick all night.

There is red meat in McCains performance for his base, but Obama resonated more with the electorate as somebody with a vision for the future.
