Debate Night Open Thread

If anyone wants to talk about the debates, or anything else vaguely political, have at it here!

Also, I’m not exactly sure why someone wanted to make wax Romney and Obama heads, but I figured I’d put these up in case any of you were ever wondering what that would look like.

Looks like Jim Lehrer is really drunk.

(Not actually true, just trying to make things more interesting.)

For me the only fun part about the debate is reading my friends’ reactions to it on Facebook.

If I had a portable breath test, an Obama drinking game, a Romney drinking game and a case of beer…I would have a lot more fun because I could see who won by who got drunker-Team Obama or Team Romney.

I’m almost home! I have no aspirations toward sobriety, since sober!pup has no ability to sit through Romney speaking for more than thirty seconds.

Btw, Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) is gonna livetweet this debate, as he did the republican primaries. Strongly recommend.

Really surprised to see Romney come out in a Speedo.

Not as in Speedos? The bathers? Please tell me it’s not the same thing. It’s barf-inducing when our horrible Opposition Leader does the surf-lifesaver-photo-ops (he’s done it so often the cartoonists just draw him in Speedos now). The thought of seeing Romney like that … aaaah, where’s my brain bleach?

“President Obama I’m proud for you and I’mma let you finish, but my tax plan is the best one of all time. Of all time.”

My son is teething and cranky, so he’s sitting in my lap while we’re watching the debate. He just stopped fussing long enough to stare at Romney, listen to a few seconds of his response, then put up a finger to his lips and angrily “SSShhhhhh!!!!” Love my son.

Another update from people actually watching the debate (yay for working over!)

“Romney’s plan works because magic free market unicorns shit $100 bills on everyone’s lawn!”

“Romney’s plan works because magic free market unicorns shit $100 bills on everyone’s lawn!”

Will enchanted Objectivist elf-laundresses wash them off for us? Because I don’t want to clean that up.

Kitteh – Thanks! He’s actually starting to look droopy. Economic policy may be the best sleep-aid in the world.

Fitzy, I reckon it would be! Even if it wasn’t being spouted by a Romneybot.

oh my fucking god

Obama: Ok, so math. When you put money into something, it has to come from somewhere.

Mitt: You’re taking money from somewhere, MISTER PRESIDENT IF THAT IS YOUR REAL NAME

Yeah, no way I’m watching that. My blood pressure and liver can’t take the strain and I wouldn’t want to get kicked out of my apartment for shrieking at the teevee.

For the record I will never watch this debate. I depend on you all to let me know what’s going on in American politics. It’s pretty cool of you guys to hold your debates on the beach!

@ttf — Basically Mitt Romney is making shit up and Obama is, for some reason, addressing the made up shit as though it’s valid.

And it’s official – Romney’s view on Social Security finally knocked my son out. This should be noted tomorrow during the post-debate “Who Won?” talky-talk.

I’ve been gone for a few minutes, what’s up now? Ooo, Romney’s trying to simultaneously defend his Massachusetts health care law and tear down ACA? Good luck with that.

@ inurashii- Clearly Obama hasn’t spent enough time trolling trolls on the internet. Please don’t tell me Obama is losing this thing.

It’s Birther Conspiracy, Part 2: The Debate…

I think I’m going to start imbibing, too. Should we make up a drinking game, or is that asking for trouble on a school night?

@ttf — I don’t think he’s losing, but I don’t think he’s winning. So far, my drunken ass reads this as an inert discussion.

Well. Except the part where Romney said he’s gonna cut PBS but he “Likes Big Bird.” That was fucked up.

@Fitzy, the drinking game I’m playing is “When I’m too sober to cope with the debates, take a drink.”

I am … losing.

Bahaha!! No frigging way, they aren’t still on that birther thing, are they? Wasn’t the end of that: “Ok, here’s my birth certificate- oh, and I killed that mass murdering dude the president before me stirred into a rage spitting frenzy- your welcome”?

Well. Except the part where Romney said he’s gonna cut PBS but he “Likes Big Bird.” That was fucked up

@ inurashii- A man that ignorant of innuendo has to be a replicant.

@ttf – They’re not doing that literally. But inurashii is right, Romney’s throwing similar BS at the president.
