    My Moscow Mule copper mugs arrived today. Sadly I have no good ginger beer. But thanks for the introduction. I think I’ll make a Pisco Sour in the mug anyway.

  2. Grange95 says:

    How could you have failed to line up a Mule supplier in advance of the debate? A Mule Mule, if you will.

  3. Grange95 says:

    “Quick, this is very important. Will there be a commercial break during this debate? There is a drink concern. A mule doesn’t last 90 minutes.”

    Bet you’re rethinking the whole crushed ice gambit right about now.

    isn’t there supposed to be a moderator? seems like Lehrer is just hanging out..

  5. teamscottsmith says:

    Emma said that she liked Romney’s hair better. That it had 50 Shades of Gray.

  6. Grange95 says:

    “I have a cocktail emergency.”

    Scurvy is a terrible affliction.

  7. R C Fox says:

    The perfect antidote for a debate: Being on hold with the IRS….

  8. G-Rob says:

    This race will be tied after this debate. Romney is CRUSHING Obama who seems like a tired, cranky asshole.

    Since we can freely admit that content and data are meaningless…Romney seems energized and easily understandable.

    Obama seems tired and detached.

  9. Grange95 says:

    @ G-Rob: Debates haven’t had a meaningful effect on polls since Kennedy-Nixon. This is all American Kabuki for the political media.

  10. Grange95 says:

    I bet there’s a market for bukkake kabuki.

  11. Jason says:

    Where is the Toastmaster AHH Counter?

  12. Grange95 says:

    “Winning” the debates is key to becoming President, right President Kerry?

  13. Chad says:

    Wouldn’t it make more sense as “Kabuki Bukkake”? I think so, but Japan is weird, after all.

  14. Grange95 says:

    @ Chad: That’s the difference between “blue balls” and “Balls, Blue!”

  15. Grange95 says:

    @ G-Rob: I apologize. This performance (if you can call it that) by Obama was gawd-awful enough to give Mitt a boost. Which he will undoubtedly squander.

    Wait, is that a masturbation joke?

  17. teamscottsmith says:

    Let us not forget the real loser in this debate, the late Jim Lehrer. RIP.

  18. Grange95 says:

    “Imagine yourself in a kabuki theater with a recently-fired Big Bird who is holding his own. That, friends, is what we should take away from this evening. A self-abusing Muppet with employment issues.”

    Paging the Coen brothers.

  19. Poker Shrink says:

    Oh no, I had to clip my toenails and I missed the debate. Great summary however, I give it a 85 – easy to dance to but just a few too many actual references to the campaign.

  20. easyfeat says:

    The biggest win of the night goes to Jim Lehrer who was never caught rubbing the “stop” light and croaking “they don’t love you like I do…my precious…”

  21. Grange95 says:

    Otis, I suspect you are now popular with the Muppet porn subculture.

  22. KenP says:

    Everybody knows Big Bird is a capon. After your hot chick remarks, now suspect the candidates of similar surgery.

    I didn’t watch. Figured the health reporter with the big bazongas would be asked to participate.

    Thanks for the minute by minute. And the tuch shot of the missus compensates for not seeing your health reporter.

    Libertarian candidate exceeding single digits in many state. Three ways are always more interesting on one’s couch.
