"That one" seems racist to me 

It seems the immediate take-away point of the debate was when McCain referred to Obama as "that one." If it doesn't immediately seem racist, turn who said it around.

Karen and I both looked at each other and exclaimed something like "What the ... huh?"

The most substantive instance of the grumpy, ornery McCain, I believe, is when he bizarrely interrupted Obama to "thank" him for saying "McCain suggests that somehow ... he's somber and responsible," only to have Obama continue his response which effectively turn McCain's criticism about Obama "announce[ing] that you're going to launch an attack into another country."

OBAMA: Sen. McCain, this is the guy who sang, "Bomb, bomb, bomb Iran," who called for the annihilation of North Korea. That I don't think is an example of "speaking softly."

This is the person who, after we had -- we hadn't even finished Afghanistan, where he said, "Next up, Baghdad."

McCain senility watch 

His co-opting of Obama's campaign slogan and imagery is quite bizarre. And he says a lot of things that sound like what they just might be: ramblings of a senile geezer.

Today, he referenced Reagan when speaking of reducing deficits. McCain was in the House of Representatives for the last six years of Reagan's terms. Whatever the reason he mentioned Reagan - forgotten about the huge deficits, hoping everybody else forgot or just pulling Reagan out of his ass - it is not the sort of statement one with the aptitude to lead the country would say.
