Best debate zinger

Obama to Romney:

But I think Gov. Romney maybe hasn’t spent enough time looking at how our military works. You mention the Navy, and how we have fewer ships than 1916. We also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military has changed. We have aircraft carriers; we have ships that go underwater; nuclear submarines.

And so the question is not a game of ‘Battleship’ where we’re counting ships. It’s: What are our capabilities?

    Wish O would have added that the windows don’t roll down on the Submarines.

    You may have heard of these ships that go underwater, old man. Stick that bayonet in your horse and smoke it.
    Finally, signs of life from Obama. Fun crack van.

    Syria is Iran’s route to the fucking sea, sez Rmoney.
    All that fucking cash, and a cocksucker can’t buy a world atlas?

    Someone should point out to Mitt than when you’re cribbing off of the work of the guy next to you, it’s a lot more noticeable in a presidential debate than in prep school.
    Shorter Romney: “I’ll do everything the way Obama does it but with leadership! And 70% whiter!”

    On a scale where 1 = flaming liberal and 10 = ultraconservative, Romney has hit every number on the scale.

    Charlie Pierce at Esquire called this yesterday morning, saying something to the effect of, “In 1916, all I’d need would be one nuclear-missile sub and I could be Emperor of the World by lunchtime.”

    Big Bird, Binders, and Bayonets, headed down the Polish corridor from Iran to Syria in their march to the sea to kill the jihadists(crusaders). Criminy!

    On a more serious note: where did Romney get his claim about number of ships and does it hold up
