Ann Romney: "He's such a good decent human being"

You know, other than when he is forcefully cutting off the hair of gay classmates, using a fake cop uniform to pull people over illegally, and strapping his dog to the outside of a car for a family trip.

Shrugging Atlas: Lost Thought 00: MSNBC stuck Chris Mathews outside, instead of in the comfortable studio. Ha!

Hopefully he has mic problems as well.


I need to see him debate and cut off Michael Steele mid-sentence, thus looking like a dick for stifling a total dick.

I'm an alt so if you're drunk and feeling charitable, save your free TotalFark for a woman with wandering breasts, a woman who isn't afraid to post them somewhere in the bowels of Fark.

WI241TH: Obama's going first tonight so that he can get out in front of Romney's zingers:


Dude. Awesome. This basically beats anything to come in the whole debate.

In fact I think we should just change the debate format into a rap battle.

Did someone actually photograph the President acting ah...urban like that? Or is that a photoshop? Someone check the pixels for me.

Romney ought to be judged by the same measure the rest of us are judged by when we apply for a job, not our fake resume. But Romney has lied about or refused to tell us about his past.

fark Romney, if I was a human resources officer and he applied at my company I'd throw his resume in the trash and laugh him out of the building.

He's a LOSER!

Obama should do his black preacher voice tonight, and throw his hands up some more, and take it up a notch and give us a hell no or two.

I'd vote for him if he did.

Doesn't matter. My state is going to him. Hate this system.

hillbillypharmacist: my lip balm addiction: /Arkansas needs your vote

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.


And remember, vote often.
