Dave’s Strange and Unusual World

“Who Knows What the Unexpected Will Be?”

Filed under: Politics — dangrdave @ 3:15 am

Well, tonight I watched the debates, which means I’ll probably be chewing on Tums all evening and wondering what ever happened to America.

Now, I’m not a political strategist, but I wanted to offer a quick bit of advice:  If you are the political candidate for an elected office, one of the things that you should probably not say is that you could use some hair plugs.  To me, that’s a bit more than I think Americans really need to know and nine-out-of-ten political strategists agree that body hair should not be mentioned on the campaign trail.

Also, I wanted to offer up my favorite quote from the debate, which is profound, yet succinct; bold, yet timid; uttered, yet not understood:

“What I don’t know is what the unexpected will be.” -John McCain

So, there you have it.  If you missed the debates, you may feel free to reference my blog for your talking points tomorrow around the diet water cooler (now, with added minerals for an enhanced taste!).  The rest of the debate was basically your standard finger pointing rhetoric, with the somber-joweled Tom Brokaw stepping in at one point to pull the outstretched finger of one of the candidates for going over his allotted two minutes.



  1. Sounds as though you did not hear his post debate explanation, “I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I’m not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.” Or words to that effect . . .

  2. No, Larry, I didn’t watch the post debate wrap-up, but thanks for bringing me up-to-speed on the clarity of the clarification. Because of this, we can know for sure that we are in little doubt about the certainty or uncertainty of what may or may have been said, or not, depending on what we realize we thought the meaning was pertaining to the things that we know little about, if in fact it is true and we believe that it was indeed said.
