I grew up in a home that dripped with sarcasm. And I lived much of my adult life falling back on it myself when I was losing an argument. I have come to see it (for the most part) as a negative way to deal with conflict. When I find myself reverting to it, afterwards I don't feel clean. I realize that even the apostle Paul used it at times, but I have tried to break that in my life.
So as much as I would like McCain to be able to verbalize his message, I have to say his sarcasm and eyerolling (a sign of contempt) probably lost him votes in the debates -- especially last night. The split screen did him no favors. Maybe that is just my opinion, but early morning polls seem to support that.
I would like to know more about Obama's relationship with his former pastor and the former terrorist. His explanations sound fairly reasonable, but I would like to hear it verified by legitimate to confirm what he is saying. But please: Don't send me stuff from radical groups. They only cloud the picture. If it can't be verified legitimately, then it is gossip and slander.
