I dunno, and yeah, I’m biased, but I agree with Adrastos…I also think the punditocracy, particularly good old librul MSNBC, allowed themselves to get dragged under by an avalanche of bulllshit truly remarkable to behold.
As remarkable as Mitt’s performance, which to me reeked of an amped-up-on-caffeine Eddie Haskell (even though Mitt’s religion prohibits him from touching the stuff).
Hello, Mrs. Cleaver. That’s a lovely offshore bank account you have.
Mitt’s “victory” rings hollow in my book — while he managed to not saying anything jaw-droppingly cloddish for once — he sure as hell didn’t do anything to change the opinions of a mostly decided electorate. And watching the reactions of the chattering class was a tiresome exercise. Wingers, like lab rats self-administering cocaine, pressed every hot button they could think of in hopes liberals would press the panic button (because everyone knows “a librul is a wussy who won’t even take their own side in an argument”)…
Sad to say, at least a few libs took the bait. Sigh.
I call bullshit, or, in this case, spinshit.
Obama “won” this debate — not that I particularly like the whole “winner, loser” nonsense — but he won by not losing. Mitt’s performance was the political equivalent of garbage time in a meaningless basketball game. To quote Bill Hicks, “we hope you enjoyed your fireworks show.”
