McCain loses; the country wins
Does anyone truly wonder why McCain's aspirations to be President sink quickly?
• Throughout Debate #1, McCain could not look Obama in the eye; heck, he could not even look in Obama's general direction;
• During Debate #2, McCain referred to Obama as "That One" (and insulted the moderator, Tom Brokaw); and
• During Debate #3, McCain betrayed facial looks of impatience, disgust, and disrespect. The most obvious example occurred post-debate in this non-photoshopped picture (caption courtesy of Yahoo)...

Add several factors -- including but not limited to McCain's recent erratic behavior, his nonsensical comments, his daddy posture to shield his VP candidate (a selfish decision if ever there were one. For the good of country or the good of John McCain?) -- and the total picture comes into clearer focus.
