phritz: I figure this is worth posting one more time, so here is part of tomorrow's transcript from the debate:Jim Lehrer: You're in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down...Mitt Romney: What desert?Lehrer: It doesn't make any difference what desert, it's completely hypothetical. You look down and see a tortoise, Mitt. It's crawling toward you...Romney: Tortoise? What's that?Lehrer: [irritated by Mitt's interruptions] You know what a turtle is? Same thing.Romney: I've never seen a turtle... But I understand what you mean.Lehrer: You reach down and you flip the tortoise over on its back, Mitt.Romney: Do you make up these questions, Mr. Lehrer? Or do they write 'em down for you?Lehrer: The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping.Romney: [angry at the suggestion] What do you mean, I'm not helping?Lehrer: I mean: you're not helping! Why is that, Mitt?[Mitt has become visibly shaken]Lehrer: They're just questions, Mitt. In answer to your query, they're written down for me. It's a debate, designed to judge your competency for the presidency... Shall we continue?

Attempting to appeal to the widest possible demographic base as Election Day draws near, President Obama made a surprise campaign stop Monday to visit an infinite series of alternate universes that vibrate on a hyperdimensional plane different from the three spatial dimensions observable in our own universe.Occupying an M-theory-postulated "brane," or multidimensional "membrane," of either 11 or 22 dimensions depending on the chirality of the observer, Obama urged any hypothetical sentient consciousnesses within that multiverse to vote for him in November, or in whatever analogous chronological period their version of space-time specifies as extant."I come here today to stress the importance of finishing the work we've started and moving our political discourse forward," said the president, his voice confident and assured despite its sound waves propagating in wildly divergent modes incompatibly different from that of his and our native universe, due to differences in the fundamental physical constants guiding the alternate existence in which he stood. "It's time we talked about the issues that truly matter to voters, and not just to a select few."

GentDirkly: If you watch the debate on PBS, you might see my face when they talk to a "room full of undecided voters" in Orlando. Yes, we are real people. Who have real trouble making up their minds!

publikenemy: If you are an Obama lover, which most here are, then read this. If you still are after you read it, then you greatly suck...Yes, he told us in advance what he planned to do. Few were listening.The following is a narrative taken from a 2008 Sunday morning televised "Meet The Press'.From Sunday's 07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, Televised "Meet the Press" THE THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag.General Bill Gann' USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171...During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, "Stand and Face It".NOW GET THIS !!'Senator Obama replied:"As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides". "There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression.." "The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing."(ARE YOU READY FOR THIS???)Obama continued: "The National Anthem should be 'swapped' for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing'. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as 'redesign' our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love.It's my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails - - - perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments ......."When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have b ...

Shostie: I still think there should only be one rule:If a candidate actually answers a question instead of spouting off barely-related talking points, empty a bottle of booze.
