Oh Eight and Its Debates…

This is a video from Slate V about previous debates.

We also caught former LAT editor, John McCain biographer Matt Welch‘s enlightening op/ed piece:

And when a candidate confuses his own political ambitions with the fortunes of his country, that’s when Great Men turn into self- parodies.

“I have craved distinction in my life,” McCain wrote in his 2002 political memoir, “Worth the Fighting For.” “I have wanted renown and influence for their own sake. That is, of course, the great temptation of public life. … I have never been able to conquer it permanently, but I have tried.”

Don’t say he didn’t warn us.

Great men turning into self-parodies? Brilliant. Speaking of which – it’s called for McCain tonight. He won, you know. Yikes.
