I watched the debate yesterday. No, just kidding. I had it on in the background while I read Neal Stephenson's "Anathem". It was powerful and engrossing, deeply edifying in a way that helps me make sense of my world. The debate, on the other hand would have bored me to tears if I had looked up from the book for more than a total of 60 seconds. The one impression I got from it, and I think it sums up the entire campaign, is that those of you who have been watching have seen John McCain turn into Bob Dole right there before your eyes.
