Unlike an A-4 Skyhawk, there is no eject button on this thing.

Last night was probably the most entertaining of the three presidential debates - if, like me, you have a sick fascination with watching a man come apart right before your eyes while his younger opponent details policy with almost eerie calm and acts the part of the adult in the room. I think it was David Brooks who paraphrased Napoleon on PBS last night, saying, "You don't interrupt your enemy while he's busy destroying himself." Obama is apparently well aware of that piece of wisdom.

[*Although, like a Skyhawk, it is possible to accidentally drop bombs all over your own deck.]
