At the beginning of the 2d - “town hall” - debate, when the candidates came out McCain immediately sat down and began writing on his pad of paper, and didn’t stop until the moderator spoke to him. Last night he also began writing as soon as he sat down.
I doubt we will ever find out for certain what he was writing (imagine what those notes might fetch on ebay!), but does anyone have any thoughts on what it might have been?
I’m assuming that just before he came out he read/heard some key words/points/phrases he wanted to hit either in his opening or throughout the debate, and he wanted to jot them down as reminders before they might slip his mid during the heat of the debate. But it looked a tad odd, didn’t it?
