    Yeah Kermit would have to host it inside a dark closet cause we know Piggy would never let him be around all those women. :p And then Piggy would be one of the contestants and beat all of them up so she would be the one to ACTUALLY win in the end. Hey you know I'd pay big money to see that.

    I try very hard not to worry, but it really seems like Romney, on his squillionth reboot since the convention, pulled it out of his butt on the debate last night. His performance was all attitude and bringing up Solara (which lost a miniscule fraction of government money that was completely lost in Iraq and Afghanistan, some of which went to the very same terrorists we're supposedly fighting), and he "won" by sheer smug jerkiness, but that was a frightening reminder that things aren't all smooth sailing. Like I said, his Monty Burns gaffes must have been an act to lure liberals into a false sense of security. It all depends on the undecideds.

    I could talk smack about Romney all day, but the fact of the matter is, the guy's a caricature. He's basically the same attributes a strawman Republican created by a liberal has. He has the same characteristics that actual Republican voters have a cow over when liberals paint them with that brush. I don't understand why right wing voters don't take a good look over their own party and see their candidates were either rich elitists and fear-mongering pseudo-religious figures right out of The Scarlet Letter. Those are the very same stereotypes they want to have erased from their party... but they don't mind if their candidates have them.

    Not to mention the "we have to make Obama fail because Boss Limbaugh told us to."

    HEH! The only reason he was running for president and brought out the junk logic about the birth certificate was that no one was watching his cruddy little show!

    Toughpigs makes an excellent point right here:

    Think about it from Lehrer's view. Take the Big Bird stuff out of it and Romney was pretty much saying, "It's nothing personal, it's just business" right in front of the guy he spent the rest of the debate rudely interrupting and talking over. He's basically calling him one of the "moocher class" that he swears he's not antagonizing, but he is to his face and acting d***ish to him the rest of the night. If I were Lehrer, I would have shouted, "SHUT THE *&^% UP, MITT! You've been blowing smoke all night, that's fine, it's a debate. But at LEAST act like a freakin' adult."

    Like I kept saying... he may have won the debate, but he won the debate being an unlikable jock jerk and a petulant child. That's definitely the quality I want in a world leader... an arrogant schmuck that could get us into a crapload of international incidents. We already had one, thanks.

    He was panicking so he got desperate. And frankly I was shocked to see headlines that he'd "won." He seemed nervous and uncomfortable the whole time. And I'm not even a big Obama person.

    The reason why everybody is saying Romney "won" the debate was because Obama apparently wasn't on the top of his game like he usually is, he seemed to emote a, "I don't even want to be here, I could care less about all this stuff" demeanor throughout the night, while Romney was beboppin' and scattin' all over the place.

    I didn't get that from Obama at all. And again, not even a huge fan, lol.

    Romney was breaking the rules, bullying the moderator and that means he "won?" On what planet?
  14. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Well again, that's just what I've been hearing everybody say: apparently, Obama had his taint handed to him by Romney that night.
  15. Drtooth

    Drtooth Well-Known Member

    He "won" because he was loud, abrasive, arrogant, and the fact that Obama just stood their taking it, only making faces that said "REALLY?!?! Is he serious?!" instead of defending his record and fact checking Romney's tall tales about how the deficit "doubled" (it went up a percent of a trillion, and quite a bit of that was Obama wimpily keeping us in the wars) and that half of the green energy companies that Obama invested in failed (three out of at least 30. That's 10% math genius). Nope...he just sat there.

    Yes, much like how the whole Chick-fil-A issue keeps coming up.

    So perhaps neither of them won. I don't know why we're so hesitant as a country to admit that. People just have to cling to their "side."

    Here's something no one has brought up yet. Dried up porn star Jenna Jameson (who at this point has less sex appeal than J. Jonah Jameson) is a supporter of Mitt.


    Family Man Mitt. Wants to fire Big Bird, gets support for the porno industry!

    Mitt loves Big Bird. It's Ernie and Bert that he hates.

    When will politicians learn - you don't upset the Muppet Fan Lobby! If you were unsure who to support, the choice should now be clear!

    Keep your Mitts off my fur! Don't Fil-A my Chic!

    Of course this is all just going to make the "I am Big Bird" documentary all the more insanely popular!
