Do vegans have a problem with Pork Barrel Spending?

What's your favorite over used term or cliche in these debates?

"Fundamental difference"

"Say it ain't so, Joe" was pretty memorable too.

"My friend."

Wouldn't McCain have a problem "reaching across the aisle" with his permanently disabled shoulders due to the torture he received while a POW? Just asking.

"Cool hand on the tiller" made me laugh because it is probably true if McCain's hand was on anything. That is because he so old and probably has poor circulation.

I'm more worried about his hot hand and shaky finger on the red button...

"I know what the problems are and I know how to fix them."
(but don't ask me for specifics, because I lost my memory 10 years ago)

"I know how to win a war"
(ORLY?)

The news today talked of McCain's being smug and his grinning as a sneer.
Someone here last night thought he was just trying to keep his dentures in place.

Count up the number of times either side says 'middle class' and divide by the number of times they say 'poor.'

Under drinking rules, if anyone in the debate mentions anything about the poor, drink the whole bottle. THis is a safe rule because it will never happen.

so true.
it takes a lot of income to be considered middle class today.
I'm not sure many people really are
