That there’s some funny crap

Doesn’t matter what your political predilection, these are some pretty imaginative memes from the debate last night, where Mitt Romney now-famously said:

And – and so we – we took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet. I went to a number of women’s groups and said, “Can you help us find folks?”, and they brought us whole binders full of women.


Oh, come on. Lighten up. Admit it: you thought at least some of it was funny. :-) Besides, at this point it’s either laugh or launch puppies at a speeding train. Anyone who takes these debates seriously — or worse, would allow watching them to sway his or her vote — is unaware of the pure theater behind them. And forget the boring debates of, say, Kennedy and Nixon in 1960, where a greater share of dignity and protocol ruled the political airwaves. That ain’t good TV; it doesn’t translate well to the “I can only handle three-second sound bites or I lose interest” crowd.

I am So. Over. This. Campaign. Garbagetalk.

    I know, right? They’re both coached, smooth liars. ALL POLITICIANS LIE. That’s just the way of it. Somewhere, at one of their secret brotherhood cult gatherings, the motto Say anything to get the votes is posted on a banner.

    And Wendell — I loved that one (and the Ermahgerd one, hahaha)
