Annenberg fact checks the debate

Again, the worst Obama comes out with is a few misleading statements (eg 95% of households, not people, get a tax break), McCain misleads on his own record, and Kissinger flip-flops on Iran.

Obama had a few possibly misleading statements. McCain also had a few misleading statments backed up with some outright lies. Obama’s a bit of an idealist when it comes to energy, McCain wants to drill, baby drill and nuke, baby nuke.

Bonus: Kissinger debates self on diplomacy with Iran.

McCain loses his self-made game of chicken
