I have to say that personally, I don’t understand why people are seizing on John McCain referring to Barack Obama as “that one” as some huge thing. “One” is a bit passive, but as a word often refers to people, as in “One does not eat Shrimp Florentine with one’s salad fork.” “That” is simply a specifier, useful in comparison.
Can someone explain to me what the big fuss is?
