Out of all the things I’ve noticed about John McCain in the debates is how much the man blinks. He often looks insane, his eyes fluttering away every time Obama moved his lips. With every utter and stutter from Obama, McCain’s eyes went a-flutter. Sometimes in amusement, sometimes in frustration, sometimes in befuddlement and sometimes for no reason at all.
But that didn’t stop me from wondering what the hell was going on …
Top Ten Reasons Why John McCain Blinked So Much During the Debate
1. He has no sweat glands and it is his way to cool. Re: Eye panting
2. Chronic dry eye?
3. He was inspired by that guy from The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
4. He was blinking Morose Code to Cindy McCain, “Need to buy more Depends!”
5. He was flirting with the moderator.
6. It was 127 failed attempts of Sarah Palin’s patented “wink.” Just couldn’t get it right.
7. He was having a minor stroke
8. He is secretly one of Snow White’s Seven Dwarfs — McBashful (McBashful has an alter ego called McBitchy. He was there Wednesday night too.)
9. He was catching the vapors
10. He was flirting with “his friends.”
