What. The. Fuck.

What the fuck was wrong with Obama? Was he on ludes? He spent that whole debate shifty, defensive, and in total cowardly lion mode. What -- he can't make eye contact with Romney? He stood there looking like a guilty eight year old being chastised by his dad.

And fucking Jim Lehrer is either in the midst of a major stroke or a Romney supporter. There was basically no moderation at all. When Jim did wake up, it was to admonish Obama after letting Romney ramble on for 80% of the time.

Obama's attitude almost swung me over to Romney's camp. Everything Romney said was fucking evil and crazy, and yet he came off as rational and adult next to the shrinking Obama violet.

Sadly, it's the impressions -- not the words -- that'll fuel the campaign and, if last night is anything to go on, then this is now Romney's game.

Your last act before President Romney's troopers surround your house.

What disturbed me was that even Rachel Maddow had a hard time spinning Obama. I have never seen such a clear defeat in a debate. The Post said that "Obama made Jimmy Carter look awesome." And he did.

Ouch.

I haven't watched any of it. Now I'm glad I missed it.

I still don't think Romney has a chance. But there has been a bit of a buzz today...

Isn't Romney an Alien or a lizard, or something? I'd say the same about Obama except it may be construed as 'racist' by the black lizard community.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Speaking of which, maybe Obama had a spell cast upon him by Witch Queen Palin. Or the lizards.

Well...at least Biden had a bit more fire. Though Ryan did well, in my opinion. Biden did the debate with the same sort of bemused outrage that Jon Stewart would have done...which didn't look all that good. Though I liked Biden's finale.

I guess a draw on this one. One more debate and then we go into the horror show!

What really upsets me about these Presidential run-ins is that we're really living in an age when "truth" is more about what we can make people believe, regardless of the actual situation or even, 'facts' - something anathema to the GOP and their candidates apparently.

Therein this system of manufactured belief/consent - a la Noam Chomsky - these cunts, *ahem*, politicians, blatantly lie to a camera broadcasting their lies to millions of people who will, unfortunately, believe what they say because of a lifetime of poor education and reduction of cognitive capacities by eating unhealthy foods and a wearing-down of resistance by flashing lights and bullshit on television training people to believe that what they see/hear on television - the truth box - is correct and accurate.

Depressing really.

Fixed That For You.

Yes it is depressing. That is why most of us have turned away from paying attention to politics or world events...too much spin not enough fact.

Which may also be another tactic of the corporate/governmental machine: alienate people so much so that they pay no heed whatsoever to politics until it's too late and all civil rights/liberties have been removed in the name of profit.

Which most people won't complain about because, hand in hand with this, they're also alienating us from education through various subtle ways. We're the new peasants, ready to accept our lot in life and serve absolute rulers.
