I just can't stand the kind of cringe-inducing questions I expect at town hall style events.  I do not like to cringe.

Our country is at war, the financial markets are crashing, and this is possibly the most important election of my life thus far.

I'm choosing the debate.

(How's that for humorless?)

Also, read this: http://www.abcnews.go.com/Blotter/Vote2008/story?id=5963751&page=1
are you still undecided about who you're going to vote for?

Wheelies- I'm havin' a time
Headlocks- I'm havin' a time
Drunk Tank- not so much a time
George St.- I'm havin' a time
Brenda- I'm havin' a time
Bingo- I'm havin' a time
House Arrest- I'm still havin' a time

No. But I just need to see this thing pan out. I don't really know why, but I think it's important to tune into these things.

If this in reference to my post, I was referring to the McCain campaign the shadowy consortium that controls political cameos in sketch comedy.

Sorry, but I reinvented myself as a maverick, once I saw that was becoming popular.

I'm saying I'm wearing nothing but heels.  Sorry if that wasn't clear, I've only been at this for, what, five hours?

I've started winking at everyone I meet. I'll let you know how it's going.

Our choice tonight is between the show and the debate. Which will you choose?

I'm listening to the Best Show.

If it were a regular debate, then the debate.  But a "town hall"?  Best Show by a mile.

Not only a "town hall", but one in which any questions from "regular citizens" were provided to the candidates in advance.
