What They Said 

About "Win, Lose, Or Draw? How McCain-Obama #1 Went," by Jackson Baker:

"In his disrespectfully dismissive attitude and posture toward Senator Obama, Mr. McCain sent a powerful message that he doesn't care about the motivations or views of others, either. The Bush administration has alienated our friends, frightened neutrals, and been ineffective in defeating our enemies. Despite John McCain's words, our troops are no closer to coming home in victory now than they were in 2003. We simply cannot afford John McCain's aggressiveness in the White House." — rob chapman

About "What the BBC Man Saw: A First-Blush Reaction to Friday's Debate":

"There were 2 themes in the debate. McCain: Obama has little experience. Obama: McCain = Bush. That was about it. McCain seemed more the experienced leader, and Obama said he was raising taxes." — scotto

About "The Rant" and Tim Sampson's take on Sarah Palin:

"Upside to Sarah Palin — I'm really excited about my Halloween costume this year." — KatieDidnt

"People who love to sit in their office surrounded by dead animals are kind of creepy." — B

Comment of the Week:

Also about "The Rant":

"Johnny Mac, please don't f---ing die." — 38103
