I personally loved them both equally. Though I must say McCain had me laughing harder more often. Obama was definately reading from notes but
that's fine, I don't mind somebody reading from notes. But that may be because I'm college age(22). LOVED Baracks Superman reference, I thought
that was well placed and well timed as well as the Greek Column joke. Was way into McCains 2 part Joe-The-Plumber joke, and his Hillary support joke,
I thought those were very well done. I did think Obama had more genuine reaction laughter, at least with the shots we saw of him and McCain, up until
there was a jab at McCain himself seemed to be holding back. But I think he was just getting comfortable, I don't think it was being phoned in.
Both candidates had me quite literally "LOLling"...wow I almost hate myself for that one...almost...I'm also a guy who has come to enjoy a good
"B-A-N-A-N-A-S" joke...I'm a disturbed individual...
But seriously, and I definately hope this doesn't detract from the "no conflict" portion, so, feel free to ignore commenting on this portion, but I
wanted to say it:
I think it's great that the candidates can sit back and have good humored fun like this, but I also think it's an example of the deceptive political
climate we're being subjected to, and that's unfortunate. Hopefully after the whole thing is over, since we've already seen them back off of
attacks and defend one anothers character in the middle of political rallies, they can be at peace and act as two individuals who are at least
friendly and have known one another for some time. I hope that one day we can drop this political negativity, I find it very much un-necessary.
EDIT: OH! also I'm really glad I checked up first, I was about to post this whole thing, could really used those points too.
