Nevermind - that debate was pretty boring. No Rezko or Ayers or Keating 5, just a lot of similar stuff from the first debate.
Comment from djedi:
I mostly agree on your two points. To play devil's advocate for a sec:
a)is sometimes a valid point if you have enough data. Yes, correlation isn't causation but chances are if two events are correlated enough times two events you can get some info out of it, i.e. he voted no on 100 bills that had this rider, then clearly he didn't feel very strongly about the rider.
b)While this was an off-the-cuff joke, 1)it's a terrible thing to joke about, 2)it IS a joke precisely because it summarizes some of his Iran policies - before the campaign got so serious he was more open about supporting the bomb Iran idea, and 3)the Rachel Maddow thing. If Obama wants to dispute this policy point with McCain just say "He's been in favor of taking a hard line stance with Iran and bombing them in X circumstances," instead of using the joke reference.
Comment from gregstoll:
re a) - I'd have too look into it more, but 23 times over his 22 years in the Senate doesn't sound like that much...

Holy crap that was a painfully awful video!
