Oh absolutely.

I'm probably going to be casting one of the least influential votes in the nation, electorally speaking. But don't worry, I'll be voting as soon as early voting is available.


I'm in rural Arizona. My vote means nothing.

Don't worry by the time you get to your cube, the talking points will be in your email.

Hurry now, you already sound tired.

Not sure if it's been mentioned, and I don't care.

I love Obama's new ad, where he ends "Look at my plan, and look at Romney's, and decide for yourself."

This sentiment alone, that a voter should look into a politicians position in a rational way and determine how it affects them HAS NOT BEEN A PART OF THE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM FOR THE LAST TWO PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS.

And, I'm a scientist, and the Republican party has declared war on me, so I'm forced to vote against them.

Sorry I had to yell.

I hear they had to do an emergency upgrade of Rmoney's debate software over the weekend. As the new Zinger 3.0 sub-system was creating a catastrophic failure of his main cognitive system, which led to a BSOD, requiring a hard restart. That's what happens when you try and run an advanced cyborg on Windows 2000.

I don't watch debates for this very reason. I follow a few choice live-blogs instead, and watch highlights on YouTube later.

Degenz: theknuckler_33: Degenz: The actual debate doesn't even begin for 3 hours and 45 minutes. I guess the modmins think we'll jack each other off until then. Which is okay, I just can't circle jerk for that long without serious pharma.

I thought the debate started at 9pm EDT. It starts at 10?

/might have to go out for more booze

Hey, I thought election day was Nov 7th. You can biatch at me later.


I'll biatch at you whenever I goddamn please and don't you go spouting dates off because I'm a Saggitarius and I'll, uh... I'll...

I know the feeling. I'm living in a deep red state. Five Thirty Eight puts my state as 98% likely to go for Rmoney. Only Utah is more likely to go for Mittens.

Still going to vote for Obama though. Going to vote as early as I can. I want to say I did what I could. I donated money to him, not a lot, just what I could afford.

I actually have a nice pot roast I was planning on doing anyway. But it takes too much work chopping up all the veggies so I'll probably go with the Digiorno.

Drink!

I drove to the next county to buy a giant bottle of cake vodka just for this debate, because I am in a totally shiatty area of DFW that doesn't sell liquor and I'm trapped here for another month. I am so ready for this.

A winning debate answer would be when either Obama or Romney says, "If elected I will allow Pizza joints, Mexican and Chinese home delivery shops to include cold beer and fine wine with their orders. Pizza, tacos, and fired rice are optional"

Don't feel bad. My cat is probably more informed about this election than me. Plus, he knows where I leave the errant stale beers.

What the hell are you doing reading an article for a farking discussion thread?

Why is it link to TPM is a better question.

I don't care, just like I wouldn't care if a Breaking Bad discussion thread had a FreeRepublic link.


Of course you don't, I doubt it though. TPM is telling people how to decode spin is pretty funny.

Honestly never thought Mr. Obama was a particularly good debater. but I'm not impressed with Romney either. He gets flustered easily. So I don't know what to expect. I do like the format however, which is pretty open ended.
