The Last Debate

I read somewhere the last debate is a sit-down debate. This should be bad news for McCain, who said today he was going to "whip" Obama's "you-know-what." Of course physically it will be harder to get to his you-know-what if he's sitting on it.

But his bigger problem is the whole dynamic of sit-down debates. Going by debates past -- Lieberman/Cheney and Edwards/Cheney come to mind -- they tend to be gentlemanly affairs. If McCain tries to get too nasty it'll come across as nothing but nasty.
