Did Mitt Romney cheat in Wednesday’s debate?
It was a handkerchief.
It’s just funny how the internet overheats this thing that is ALREADY overheated. ”This is the most important election of our lives. Everything will be decided. Peanut butter & jelly sandwiches will no longer exist if the wrong person is elected.” Or “Mitt Romney will murder all of the old people— he hates everybody. He wants sick people to die so he can steal their wallets— he loves money that much. He’s trying to invent a ray-gun that zaps only the gays. He’s trying to make a coat made out of Dalmatians— 101 Dalmations!” Or this week’s whole “Obama had the worst debate— the worst debate of all time! Where were the zingers? Why was he boring America by answering questions instead of zinging? We love zingers and he kept them from us, like some kind of zinger Scrooge. Now, our entire civilization is at risk of falling into the ocean.” Now, the Mystery of the Slow-Motion Handkerchief— “What if he had invisible ink with cheat notes that got activated by Romney’s sweat and weird eye-tears???” — (what was going on with that dude’s eyes, by the way?).
No one cares about anything for four years, at which point we all stop and collectively live-action role-play Stephen King’s The Stand.
