I'm gonna make this quick, as I'm still trying to wake myself up from what was easily the most boring of the three presidential debates.
In essence, this was probably a tie, and at this point, tie goes to Obama. I thought McCain actually kinda schooled Obama at the beginning, but after the ACORN/Ayers/you're-more-negative-no-you-are! exchange, Obama really picked up. Obama was incredibly boring at the beginning, and McCain was old and cranky throughout.
In the end, I don't think this debate will do for McCain what he needed to do. He needed that "OMG! I CAN'T VOTE FOR OBAMA!" moment. He didn't get it, so I don't know what he can hang his hat on after this. I don't think McCain turned this thing around tonight. Obama didn't hit it out of the park, by any means, but he didn't fuck up and he came across as a plausible president. Again.
At this point in the game, anything short of a slam dunk for McCain goes to Obama. Accordingly, Obama wins this one. But what a snooze.
