"Sen. Obama, I am not President Bush. If you wanted to run against President Bush, you should have run four years ago." And with that remark, Senator McCain threw another batting practice pitch for his Harvard grad opponent to hit unmercilessly out of the park.
One can only speculate what Obama might have accomplished in the last four years, and thus avoiding the second of two dismal terms that will forever be the Bush II legacy. In fact, had McCain been able to avoid the major drubbing of his campaign four years ago by George W. Bush, it might have been surmised that there would have been no change at all, since McCain is the absolute embodiment of every major failed policy of King George II.
For the entire ninety minutes, McCain did his best to trap, corner and trick his younger opponent, and Barack proved too venerable to be a victim. The best McCain could do was to praise his opponents "eloquence", despite promising his supporters to "kick his you know what."
The bottom line is, when all the spin has spun, and the polls have been taken, my gut feeling is they will see McCain as a desperate, negative old prizefighter, down on points in the last round, flailing away at his opponent trying to land a haymaker, but coming up with nothing but air time after time.
Is McCain indeed, President Bush? No. At least he got that one right. He is not President Bush. President Bush ran for the Presidency and won both times. McCain? Three strikes and you are out. Mighty Casey has struck out, and once again, there will be no joy in matter which of his seven homes he watches the election returns from.
And that is the world..."The World According to Kimba." Thanks for reading.

McCain should of been the nominee and was screwed by his own party 9 years ago. This election "Joe the Plumber" turns out to be the story of his campaign; rhetoric without reality check. The good news, if Maverick John ever loses senate seat he is a perfect fit to do voice overs on another fictitious character as Abraham "Abe" J. Simpson.
