A few of us here at the Starpulse office have pointed out for some time the similarities of John McCain's body movements, gestures and waddle to that of the "The Penguin" (Burgess Meredith) from the 60's Batman TV series. That being said, we just ran across a blog running a clip comparing a televised debate between the Penguin and Batman that draws striking similarities between the recent debates of Senators John McCain and Barack Obama.

In this humorous debate Penguin promises, "no mudslinging, I intend to stick to the issues", as he then suggests that behind Batman's mask he is really a criminal. This 40 year old gem of a clip seems strikingly similar to McCain questioning Obama's association with a former radical Bill Ayers, founder of the Weather Underground during the most recent debate.

Special note: Penguin even says "my friends" while questioning Batman's character.
