All Barack, All the Time

Posted by novoscene on October 15, 2008

And I guess some of that other guy too.  But hell, if the SF Examiner can stump for McCain, damned right I’m flying the B-Rock flag (BTW click here for a look at the flyest Barack Obama shirts I’ve seen yet, made right here in The Bay baby!).

So tonight’s the last presidential debate, the last big night before the big, big night.  Folks from all stripes are gathering to watch what we hope will be a political smack down of the extreme Democratic variety.  Will McCain spontaneously combust into a ball of into maverick, free market rhetoric?  Will Obama hit him with more zingers like last week’s “Bomb, bomb, bomb. Bomb Bomb Iran” line.  Tune in tonight for all the action kiddies.

Here’s a short list of debate watching parties on both sides of the water.  I’m digging the shinding over at Lobot.  The promo promised Obama themed foods, bring your own shirt screen printing, rounds of McLiar Bingo and instant fact checking and lie detection.  Let the political games begin!-Kwan
