Tonight’s Debate: Round 1 to Mittens…..Maybe

OK…the wingnuts are all going to be thumping their chests and howling at the moon that Mitt Romney won the debate. Sure, Mitt yelled and interrupted and was all manly and strong and forceful and shit – the wingnuts eat that stuff like candy. 

But…think about this: tomorrow, when all the dissection and fact-checking begins, these chest-thumping wingnuts are going to hear what Mitt actually *said*.

In other words, when they process what Mitt actually said, they’re going to figure out that he threw them all under the bus – he paid only the merest lip service to the rightwing’s standard talking points tonight, and walked back a whole bunch of stuff near and dear to the wingnut heart (if such a thing actually exists).
So…the question is, what’s more important to these wingnuts? That Mitt toes the party line and maintains his already shaky “severely conservative” bona fides or …winning the debate with a bunch of lies and walkbacks from their Ayn Randian agenda?

As for me, I think there will be lots of wingnuts who are going to be mightily pissed at Mr. Romney after their tiny little hard-ons shrink back to their normal peanut size and their miniscule brains start functioning again. 

And I’m going to enjoy it immensely.

Good luck, Mitt. You totally walked right into this corner and painted the floor after yourself.

    While Ed Schultz and Chris Matthews were melting down last night I kept thinking Mitt is going to hate Thursday. He had so many “Etch-a-Sketch” moments that the campaign attack dogs must have been drooling waiting for the debate to end.


  2. Sadly, the conversation has not turned from Obama’s sleepy performance to Romney’s overt lies. And all anyone seems to care about is debate performance. I blame the “liberal media” for caring more about the style than the substance and letting this narrative continue!

      It’s funny – I still think President Obama won the debate – in terms of facts vs. lies and in terms of handing Mittens enough rope to hang himself. His campaign has already been forced to walk several things he said back, and the Big Bird moment was priceless. And, also, as I predicted, President Obama has already started running ads using Mitt’s preposterous claims against him.

      And yes, it pisses me off that being an obnoxious bully is seen as a “win” by these morons. I thought he was an asshole. I still think he’s an asshole.
