PsiChick: Levannan, are you going to do anything here besides see how many variations you can work in of calling me stupid


Dude, you're claiming Mitt Romney was stupid enough to bring in a cheat sheet, blatantly breaking the debate rules in front of hundreds of onlookers, a moderator, President Obama, the Democrat advisors, multiple video cameras and millions of viewers on TV. You think within the first 11 seconds, he farked up by just nonchalantly tossing it on his podium and later in the debate, wiped his face... with his cheat sheet. This is what you actually believe.

So no, I cannot imagine anything else to do in this thread than reiterate multiple variations of how farking dumb you really are.

dready zim: Having one thing does not prove you don`t have another thing. Sort of like a cover, or smokescreen to give a boring and ordinary thing for people to say `that`s what it was` when they see you get something out of your pocket.

Do you think that it`s important to not show paper from your pocket? how to work this... I know! Put it in a hankie!

without being there, there is no way to prove either way.

Continue your wanky derpfest fark.


You sound exactly like the birthers.

Showing a birth certificate does not prove anything, it could be photoshopped. Showing a long form birth certificate does not prove anything, it could be fabricated. Without having actually been there in the room, there is no way to prove whether or not Obama was born in Kenya or the U.S.

Continue your wanky derpfest, dipshiat. The rest of us are laughing at how stupid you and the birthers are.

skullkrusher: welcome to Fark lennavanPsiChick : Levannan, are you going to do anything here besides see how many variations you can work in of calling me stupid without actually saying anything, or should we just give up and assume you have no recourse here?

that said, thinking that this is anything but a handkerchief is the height of wishful thinking

Never mind me, just sniffing that olde timey mimiograph paper. Reminds me of grade school


I was the first one to post that picture. Anyone who claimed it was a cheat sheet after seeing that picture is clearly a dumbass. PsiChick went on some rant about how it's crazy for someone to put a handkerchief on a table, so clearly it's a cheat sheet. I fail to see how thinking PsiChick is stupid is an unfair assessment.

Wow didn't people try to accuse Bush of cheating too?

If your position is factually sound it doesn't matter if the other side is "cheating".

Nobody EVER accused Shrub of reading, notes or otherwise.

lennavan: No, subby I did not notice that because I saw Romney take notes many times. But even if the way you totally imagined the debate went were true, I fail to see how a handkerchief explains it.

Holy farking shiat you all need to drop this line of derp you're seriously as stupid as the far right derp right now.


I do wonder, though, why he made haste to UNFOLD his hanky and straighten it out in front of him. Maybe it's his Magic Mormon Hanky?

Via Infinito: ManateeGag: Via Infinito: Quasar: Is this like how Bush (or was it McCain) must have had an earpiece?

No this is more straight forward. He clearly took paper out of his pocket and put it on the podium.

There's another video that shows him going back to the podium later and collecting all his papers before he leaves.
Not that it's particularly suspicious, but we can't leave our crib notes on the podium, now can we?

that's far from conclusive. the paper he picked up at the end looked a lot larger then what he pulled out in the beginning.

That's because he took ALL the papers from the podium.


Yeah, I don't think that follow-up video reveals anything provable either. And it's more than a bit jerky for C-SPAN to title it "Mitt Cheat." When a proper authority formally declares it so, then fine; until then, no.

Why would Romney put a handkerchief on the podium? Why not just keep it in his pocket? Is he expecting some sort of snot-emergency wherein he'll need to save time?

Holy fark who cares why he put it on a podium versus kept it in his pocket. Do you? Are you seriously concerned about the location of Mitt Romney's handkerchief?

You don't think it's seriously weird that Romney put a handkerchief on the podium before the debate? Who does that?

OH SH*T it's part of his programming!


Well, if it was a hanky, then that puts the kibosh on this entire story and thread -- it's a non-issue. Hankies are allowed, so far as I know. And no, I don't think it's "seriously weird," either, if he did. What kind of insanely anal-retentive (or, alternately, hygienically fallow) upbringing did you have? Just because some does something that seems unusual to you doesn't make it "seriously weird." I think running for POTUS is seriously weird, but I'm not judging either of them for that, either.

SineSwiper: This may seem like a silly question, but why is it against the rules to bring notes? Granted, you don't want the whole debate to turn into a stump speech. But, you do want to keep your facts straight to counter certain arguments. (Or, in the case of RMoney, his bald-faced lies.)


To accuse Romney of lying is to presuppose that he knows what the actual facts are to begin with. I'm not sure I'm ready to give him that much credit. I rather see him as a rather awkward but ambitious man, who's well-meaning and decent at heart but also very self-serving, who lives a very insular existence and genuinely likes other human beings but honestly has no farking clue how most people really live, and why a lot of his notions about them are not useful and are likely actually potentially harmful to them. It's kind of sad. There's a place in this world where he can do very good things, but I don't believe this is it.

surrealbowl: No, it wasn't notes.


That's good enough for me. Until some authority in a position to say so steps forward and debunks that, this is over for me.

Good luck to both candidates, and FSM save whichever is unlucky enough to win.

EyeballKid: SuperDuper28: Do you really think a canidate for the POTUS would blatently cheat during a debate with a world audience watching their ever move and word coming out of their mouth?

[regmedia.co.uk image 445x256]
Crazy, I know, but yes.

/Hey, look who's bungling the moderating thing again!!!


Yeah, but I think most reptiles do have some kind of dorsal outgrowth there, so I don't want to assume anything. Give the guy a break. He faked the presidentiary for the better part of eight years, and it damn near killed him. Well, sure, all of us, but still.

Some think President Bush was wired to receive help with debate questions by wearing a radio receiver and using a very small undetectable earpiece. (new window)


To be completely fair, the man could barely speak English at all. I actually felt kind of sorry for him (though not for the stooges who put him up to it in the first place, which seemed cruel to me later on). I definitely got the sense that he was in way over his head, and really did need every possible advantage he could get just to seem even vaguely competent (which, let's be frank, was about as good as he ever got). If he was wired and got help, that's surely cheating, and yes, it's douchy, but on the other hand, this is Dubya we're talking about, and it kept him from *completely* embarrassing us, I'm actually glad for it. I'm just glad it's over now, and I bet he is, too.

If you know the numbers are all cooked lies anyway, it is hard to pretend that the details matter.
Just another bunch of stuff(like people) Romney does not understand nor worry his little head over.

His manner is obvious. He is getting impatient with the fools not seeing his light.
He'll melt down soon, just wait.

No, that's you. I personally think that a) he was an idiot and tried to bring some form of notes AND a hanky, or b) has the world's weirdest-looking hanky and managed to look like he was cheating without even trying.

Like I said, I don't care which it is. I find the entire thing amusing, because it is yet more classic Romney foot-in-mouth syndrome. Which may say many things about how easily amused I am, but whatever.

I am voting for Obama, and I must say that anyone one who thinks that what Romney put on the table was notes is a farking idiot.

Our candidate did a bad job at the debate. It happens. Figure out why and move on.

I dare say that a misguided plan was probably to blame. You don't win debates by being prim and proper. You win debate by aggressively going after the other guy and being ready for the other guy to do the same.

Sadly, I have always expected Biden to get beaten by Ryan though I can hope that I will be surprised.

Personally I don't think being an aggressive asshole is the way to achieve victory, or prove you're a great leader. It's sad that people feel that the candidate who was rude, loud, talking as fast as he can, spewing more bullshiat than an actual bull, and spending 90% of the debate looking like he was either gonna panic or fly at his opponent in a snarling rage is "the winner". Apparently cool heads, intelligence, and common sense are antithesis to America.

He talked? I can only remember Romney and his motor mouth hogging most of the debate.
