The candidates' body language became the centerpiece of post-debate fever once the pundits exhausted analyzing whether each candidate "did what he had to do" and if the exchange had been "a game changer."
Body language experts have been interpreting each blink of the eye, the difference between McCain's pursed lips (masking anger) and Obama's wide, toothy smile (confident restraint), noting each of McCain's bizarre reactions, gestures and tics. His use of "air quotes" while discussing late-term abortions when a mother's health is in jeopardy would have been explored in greater detail had the news shows not been cutting between this and "Breaking News" about Joe the Plumber.
The pundits continually re-define which states are red, blue, yellow and gray, updating us on how Florida bubbies, Prius owners, and college a cappella groups are likely to vote. With no more debates to hash over, it's conceivable they'll turn to handwriting analysts, psychics and astrologers to fill air time. This campaign has gone on way too long. The undecideds, if they still can't figure it out, should toss a coin. It would be more productive for remaining campaign funds to be distributed to the needy or put towards the country becoming energy-independent.
The only question still unanswered is whether or not multiple personalities all support the same candidate, but maybe that's what Colin Powell can clear up on "Meet the Press" this Sunday.
