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.
