This may be the moment from the debate that we all remember years from now:
Expected spin from the McCain campaign? John McCain is so authentic, he can’t even fake graciousness.
Reader bolsonon posted this comment:
Perhaps you dozed off during the closing moments. That would be understandable based on the less than exciting banter between the two, but, Sen. McCain did in fact shake hands with Obama. But it was not caught on camera. For those paying close attention, it was evident that the two candidates shook hands immediately upon the end of the debate, simultaneously blocking Tom Brokaw’s view of the teleprompter. They then–on-camera–stepped away from each in order to allow Brokaw to see the teleprompter. Non-issue. Nothing to read into.
The does sound quite plausible, and I can’t argue with bolsonon’s statement, as by the end of the debate, I was shoving pencils into my eyes in hopes that doing so would make the debate stop.
