When Repub Prez candie John McCain could not duck the first debate, after a note from his mother was identified as a fraud, he showed up in a tank as psychopath and Four Star General George Patton doing a bad impersonation of George C Scott!
McPatton told the "troops" that his endorsements from Julius Caesar, Napoleon and latest US Militarist superstar Tribune Petraeus proved that he was fit to be commander in chief.
He went on to tell his opponent who could spot the Naval Academy sweathog fifty points on an IQ test and still beat him by 50 that he just didn't understand complex military concepts like the difference between a tactic and a strategy, where to find the best whores in Saigon and how to marry rich instead of earning the money from hard work and brain power.
His opponent did appear initially disoriented by the tank and the sidearms but he quickly drew upon his experience as a community organizer (They often deal with nut cases). Obama talked McCain down from the tank, got him to holster his pistols and then explained that a strategy was like his many well planned policies to give America back to common folk and a tactic was like choosing a totally unqualified person for vice president just because she has a vagina and some voters who think with their vagina's might vote for him and her.
