On the plus side for the Republicans, Romney did come up with the quote of the debate, saying he had "binders full of women", when questioned about equality in the workplace. The binders were given to him by women's groups after no females applied to join his cabinet. Being a totally equality kinda guy, Mitt went out looking for women, but all he came back with was binders. Binders, full of women.
The Daily Slap also has binders full of women, but that's another story. It's just a hobby, OK? And they're certainly not going to into our cabinet. They live in the cupboard, with our other monuments to feminine beauty.
The Romney camp cried "foul" afterwards though, claiming that the debate moderator unfairly intervened to back up Obama. "It's not her role to act as fact checker," was the complaint. Which is a bit like Sir Alex Ferguson complaining that a referee correctly ruled out a goal.
Obama, who appears on The Daily Show, this Friday, did catch Romney changing positions over coal, but didn't drop the "F bomb". There's no deadlier words in American politics than "flip-flopper" and Obama pulled himself back from that kind of language. The pair did break the record for the highest use of the word "folks" in an hour, beating a previous record set by The Waltons.
Romney also got in a "Gosh!" but sadly there were no instances of "Gee whiz" or "No, Siree, Bob." Those are the words that would really reassure Americans that they have the right man to reinvigorate the economy and eviscerate bad "folks" with some unmanned drone action.
