Debate: Re-Run from 20th Century for McCain

Did you hear it last night in the debate?

Yes, that familiar set of Republican campaign assertions - my foe is a tax and spend liberal, he'll raise your taxes, he's to the far left, he's inexperienced, he'll increase the size of government, he doesn't get it.

Like a broken record from 1984, 1988 or 1992...McCain made these points over and over again last night. Like a familiar dispatch from the 20th Century. 

Weak stuff as a central argument if you ask me...especially from a guy whose political party has dominated for the last 28 years. 

The debate was close in my book, but at least Obama presented himself on par with McCain and got plenty of zingers in that I see now making the rounds on the news today.
