The final debate of the 2008 Presidential Election

Sorry for the late arrival of today's show, but it's been on crazy morning... and afternoon! I'm preparing to guest host the Thom Hartmann Show tomorrow, and working on a few things for the future (that hopefully I'll be able to share with you shortly), so I kept getting interrupted while working on this episode of Radio or Not.

Today, I share with you some of the highs and lows from last night's debate, the final one of this election. As I said earlier, there was one question asked by Bob Schieffer that is a prime candidate for satirization this Saturday night.

On Tuesday, I quoted a line from one of my all-time favorite movies, Blazing Saddles. Today, I can share with you the two scenes from which that line came. And I put it out there again today and ask why those who are so afraid of Barack Obama don't just come out and say what they really mean!

Now that I got that out of my system... Just in case you didn't get to see the debate, here's the last time Barack Obama and John McCain will speak... until one of them calls the other to concede the election.

By the way, if you were playing the "My Friends" drinking game, you were sober by the end of the night. But if you realized early on, as some did, that you could substitute "Joe the Plumber" for "My Friends," you're suffering from a mighty hangover today.

Well, it turns out that Joe the Plumber is actually a relative of Charles Keating of, yes, Keating Five fame. Extra, Extra... read all about it here!

And finally, on today's show, I mentioned an article that appears in the current issue of Rolling Stone magazine, Make-Believe Maverick, by Tim Dickinson. It is must reading. You can fulfill that obligation by clicking on the link!

And finally, I will be filling in for Thom Hartmann tomorrow on Air America Radio. The show airs live in Miami from noon-3 on 940 WINZ, and streams at the same time at I hope you'll listen and participate too!
