The 'ol man I was waiting for just showed up.

The right person finally got to McCain's ear this week. They must have whispered "Nice guys finish last".
All along this political season, McCain was hesitant to open up and just flat out blast Obama on a number of proven facts. He kept his claws sheathed, and his powder dry. Tonight, refreshingly, he came out full force against Obama and FINALLY laid the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac carcasses at his feet.
He schooled the younger man on the finer points of exactly "how" we build an alliance with Pakistani tribes (as we've done in Afghanistan after Russia failed), Beirut, Iraq and ,yes, even Vietnam.) instead of announcing that we'd attack them if they do not rid us of the Taliban/Al Queda factor hiding in their mountains.

He bested Obama so well, that the younger man wanted to revisit subjects even after his number of rebuttals were exhausted.
Obama was so frustrated, that he actually made the statement: "The senator is trying to imply that I'm green behind the ears". Let's get real here Obama. One is "green" OR one is"WET behind the ears". You are BOTH, and you just announced it in front of a NATIONAL audience.

McCain was on fire and on point tonight. I just wish he'd done it sooner, because nice guys do finish last.
