McCain didn't go off the deep end during the debate. He managed to put in a pretty average performance.
The problem, though, is he needed a spectacular performance. Average won't rescue you from losing by double digits, and that's not even taking into consideration the electoral vote map, where McCain is in very dire circumstances indeed.
To rebut creationism you pretty much have to be a biologist, chemist, geologist, philosopher, lawyer and historian all rolled into one. While to advocate creationism, you just have to be an idiot. -- tommorris
