Well the first debate between the two major party candidates is this Friday, with the "well-timed" subject of foreign policy. The Wall Street Journal gives us keen insight into how John McCain will prepare for the rumble until the stumble.

McCain "will spar this week in mock debates" with former Maryland lieutenant governor Michael Steele who will play Obama "and use many of his speaking patterns, tactics and body language."

Michael Steele? What are the odds? Were J.C. Watts and Ron Christie otherwise occupied?

But McCain has a secret preparation method:

On the day of the debate, McCain "will host a town-hall event and take a short nap"

He will be up past his normal bedtime after all.



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
