During the first debate in Denver, tens of millions of Americans were gathered around their TV sets, watching Obama stink. John Kerry has now joined Al Gore in support of the theory that Obama’s awful performance was due to the high altitude.
In a way, I agree. I, too, think Obama suffered from altitude sickness; but it wasn’t Denver’s height above sea-level. It was the dizzying altitude of his own vaulting ego that made him light-headed and insufficiently alert to the threat posed by a sharp, enthusiastic and committed opponent. Pride, fall.
