For the heck of it, I went back and copied my stream-of-consciousness rants from Wednesday night’s debacle. I mean debate. The now-mythical evening will probably puzzle political scientists for a few minutes, but it at least gave us some memes. (Edited for typos and whatnot):
7:59 p.m. I’m live tweeting this bee-yotch! (I give my ADD 10 minutes before I start seriously thinking about boobs) #debate
8:02 p.m. The last time we had a Presidential #debate, I didn’t even have a Twitter account. How did I share my thoughts? How did we do anything???
8:04 p.m. I’m sure Jim Lehrer is a great #debate moderator, but you know who we need? Mills Lane, that’s who.
8:06 p.m. Obama may have the best excuse in history for skipping out on an anniversary dinner. #debate
8:07 p.m. Since the candidates always answer the first question with a “glad to be here” soliloquy, shouldn’t the first question just be “‘Sup?”
8:08 p.m. Is someone writing down Romney’s 5 points? Because I’m sure he’ll change them tomorrow.
8:12 p.m. Just for the record, Lehrer asked Romney if he had a question for Obama, and he’s making a speech. #debate
8:13 p.m. Okay, seriously, Jim, cut Romney off if he won’t ask a question!!! #debate
8:17 p.m. It’s hard to make accurate statements about Romney’s tax plan when he stays so coy about it. #debate
8:19 p.m. “Now he’s saying that his big bold idea is ‘never mind.'” #debate
8:22 p.m. Romney keeps referencing conversations he’s had with ordinary people. We’ve seen how that tends to go for him, though… #debate
8:23 p.m. Did Romney really just say his first priority is jobs? #debate
8:27 p.m. “Going forward with the status quo won’t work” says Romney. You mean like Republicans blocking everything Obama tries to do? #debate Continue reading
