What should I be doing instead of this?

Debate About Nothing


Did you watch much of the presidential debate last night? I watched the first 15-20 minutes, fast-forwarded through the rest and saw the closing remarks. John McCain didn't press enough on his issues, and Barack Obama is basically playing defense and trying not to mess up.

As I say in my editorial in today's CityBeat, the race is over. Obama is going to be our next president, yet we have to endure another month of this crummy campaign. McCain isn't pressing Obama on the critical issues, instead focusing his campaign on personal attacks, and Obama is just fending him off until the clock runs out Nov. 4.

I don't feel particularly reassured today. What about you?
