The Debate — Twitter Style
I watched the debate tonight, of course, and I also followed the #debate on my phone. Twitter adds a new dimension to politics, and I’ve been pretty vocal about the political tweets taking over my timeline. But I’m always one to make lemonade from lemons, and I have to admit there is a bright side. Here are some of the highlights from tonight’s debate: (Bipartisan highlights, I hope)
Mitt Romney’s laughter is creepier than the tuck-and-dance scene from Silence of the the Lambs.
“I’m glad I don’t have to study up on any of this crap anymore.” — Sarah Palin
On Election Day this #debate will influence undecided voters less than the weather and what they had for breakfast.
Did Obama just say “we have to make sure our partners pull out responsibly” on national television?
Romney says he doesn’t want to divorce Pakistan. And why would he? As a Mormon he can be married to as many countries as he wants.
w/ everyone tweeting the debates you can say whatever u want & no one will read it if its not #debate I JUST PUT A PLUNGER IN MY VAGINA see?
I’m liking Obama less because Romney agrees with him too much.
Greatest threat to national security: shortage of good #whiskey.
Presidential Debates. Making American workers exhausted & confused before they wake up to a 5:30am alarm & *actually* do things…
I can’t believe no one has mentioned Britney Spears’ new bangs.
I’m thinking one final #debate moderated by Simon Cowell. Each candidate given a 80′s power ballad.
Almost a billion dollars have been spent on campaign ads so far. It’s a good thing our schools & roads are in great shape or I’d be mad.
What makeup brand is Mitt wearing? It makes his skin look flawless! I need some
And the tweet of the night:
VOTE. VOTE. VOTE. MAKE SURE YOUR FRIENDS VOTE. VOTE FOR WHOEVER, JUST VOTE.
