I’m too through. I should have watched some old episodes of Parks & Recreation rather than trying to watch this hot mess of a debate. To quote my fellow CF, watching this debate was like watching Jim Lehrer try to herd cats. Bless his heart; he needs to go have several seats and throw in the towel on being a moderator.
Also, maybe it was a mistake to watch the debate with my mama. She basically yelled at Gov. Mittens for 90 minutes.
In any event, what follows are my thoughts jotted down during and right after the debate.
My thoughts regarding Mittens:
-Why is your flag pin so big? Stop being so fucking obvious.
-You over talking everyone like you don’t have no damn sense. But some folks will actually think that you argued better. Style over substance, I guess.
-Why do you want to fire Big Bird? We all know that it’s Bert and Ernie who are the real threat. Damn Communists.
My thoughts regarding the president:
-Why do you talk so damn slow? You know our attention spans are short.
-I appreciate you being calm and collected, but damn homie, rhetoric and style matter. At the same time, I recognize that if you go ham on Romniferous you’ll be just be an angry negro. You can’t win. It’s a Sisyphean battle.
-Were you trying to take the high road by not talking about the 47% ? It didn’t work. Remind everyone that Romney gives very few %#$@ about most Americans.
On a more serious tip, I’m not sure how productive this debate ultimately was. Romney was smirking and generally being a condescending rich white man, and while President Obama was giving us some good professor shade, he was also getting filibustered severely. Plus, the fact that neither candidate discussed women’s health, LGBTQ issues, immigration, and other pressing matters, though unfortunately not surprising, was a major fail.
What are your thoughts on the first debate, fam?
