Final Presidential Debate

Source: NPR/Emmanuel Dunand.

Here are my recollections from as much of the final presidential debate of 2008 I could stand to watch:

“You are going to raise taxes.”

“No I’m not.”

“You are going to raise taxes.”

“No I’m not.”

“You are going to raise taxes.”

“No I’m not.”

“You told a plumber you are going to raise taxes.”

“No I didn’t.”

“You are going to raise taxes.”

“No I’m not.”

Sigh.
