Days after the debate, John McCain spoke to a crowd of supporters about his performance at Tuesday's event.
The highlight of his speech came when McCain told the crowd that he wanted to change one of the answers he gave to a debate question.
"My friends, unlike my opponent I am simple," McCain told the cheering crowd, "I know how to make things easier for the American people to swallow!"
The cheers went on for several minutes, stopping McCain from continuing. McCain then criticized Democratic candidate Barack Obama for being far to complicated for voters to understand.
There are also reports that a McCain supporter, during this pause in his speech, yelled, "slit [Obama's] throat with Occam's razor." This, however, is unconfirmed, but an independent analyst theorized, "I think McCain is learning that this stuff getting caught on camera is a pretty bad idea."
McCain finally got to the point of his speech, taking two of his answers from Tuesday's debate and combining them into a single answer.
"When I was asked what Americans would have to sacrifice," McCain laughed, "I was a bit flustered. He's just so black! I wasn't thinking clearly, my friends. And that's why I'm going to amend my answer, and I hope you petition to have all of the transcripts changed to reflect this."
He went on to combine his Medicare policy with the question of American sacrifice, detailing a plan to administer mandatory IQ tests to all "legal citizens" (he said with a wink). He said he would take the highest scorers and lock them in a room until they solved the Medicare crisis.
"These people will have to sacrifice their time for us," McCain ended, "Something I learned as a POW: if you lock a bunch of people in a room they will be creative. My friends my opponent doesn't know that. Only I do."
