Penn’s Verdict

Sean Penn sizes up the debate in the Huffington Post. My favorite graph:

"So, now I’ll go out, throw back a couple of sakes at the sushi bar, and re-play this thing in my head. I’ll wonder about the state of Bill Clinton’s political menopause, and the gullibility of a nation searching for a daddy. And then I’ll find a way to giggle. I’d like to see a debate between John McCain and his own vice-presidential choice, were she his opponent in the presidential race. The picture I’m seeing of that exposes both as car salesmen: one of Rolls Royce’s, the other of used pick-ups. Somewhere in between there are hopeful young people following an elegant professor from Harvard in belief of a better day. I want those people to win. Bottoms up. (This is not an economic pun…or is it?)"
