True enough. Although you could repeat the entire exchange verbatim, switching only the names and the "war hero" line for something about racism, and just repeat about Obama since no one's paying attention to poor Joe Biden. Neither side's proponents seems to have a really good grasp on the candidates needing to confront each other without the ginned-up politics of outrage.

With the community organizer thing, though, I keep seeing that line, and two things occur to me. One is that it's a sort of Mad Libs kind of swipe; you can as easily put in something like "Warren Jeffs was a community organizer; Brigham Young was a governor." The other is that it hardly helps Obama dodge charges of being an elitist with a Messiah complex to have his followers comparing him to Jesus.

I think everyone will agree that it'll be a relief once the election's over!

Amen to that. It feels like it's been going on for years.
