notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

McCain Fail

I think this has been the most lop-sided debate of the three. My favorite moment was when McCain asked Obama how much Joe the Plumber's fine would be if he failed to get health care, and Obama explained that it would be zero because he exempts small businesses. McCain looked genuinely surprised to learn about Obama's health plan and then stammered around for two solid minutes congratulating Joe for being rich and making no fucking sense whatsoever. Awesome.

Almost but not quite as awesome was McCain's promise to help special needs kids by promoting efficiency and transparency in government (huh?) and his statement in the closing moments that Trig Palin is autistic. No, dumbass, that would be Down syndrome. Autism is pretty damned hard to diagnose at 5 months old (the earliest signs don't generally appear until closer to 12 months). What a maroon!

So what did you think?

Update: Here's that moment where McCain looks absolutely stunned to learn the details of Obama's health care plan:



By my count, McCain blinked no fewer than 43 times in the 20 seconds after Obama said the fine was "zero." Not included is McCain's rambling and incoherent response congratulating Joe the Plumber for being rich several times.

Also, I second what The Poor Man said:
I will vote for John McCain to be President of Joe Wuzzlebooble, the plumber who makes more than I’ll ever make. Otherwise, he is the worst candidate I have ever seen.
