Last night's debate boiled down:

Does the man need new contact lenses? Or maybe he has been taking medication that is causing the excessive blinking?

Daughter watched the debate. Did McCain refer to Palin's baby as having autism? Rather than Downs? I didn't watch. Had board meeting...good excuse.

Apparently Palin's nephew has autism, which explains the connection, but all the same, it would have made a lot more sense for him to go with the part of the story everyone knows and say Down syndrome. Of course then he couldn't have talked about a cure, could he?

Daisy, he just talked about Autism, he didn't say that Trig/Calculus/Algebra was autistic.

Helen, there isn't a cure for autism. There are a few parents like Jenny McCarthy who claim that they have cured their kid with diets and exercise, but a cure? Nope.

Oh, I know there's no cure for autism, didn't mean that. It's just that it seemed to me easier for McCain to try to score political points by talking about something that *could* possibly be curable (if we knew more about it), rather than a disorder that to our knowledge *can't* be cured.

McCain, of course, has also said that there might be something to the idea that there's a connection between immunizations and autism (which I think is bogus). He may have been making a veiled reference to that idea.
