Random Thoughts: Magic Handkerchief

Let’s be logical here: There’s no way Romney could beat Obama unless he had some sort of magic handkerchief feeding him answers.

I guess Obama told himself before the debate, “This should be easy… unless he brings up how I was president the past four years.”

A great Romney fundraising idea would be to sell handkerchiefs with notes of Obama’s failures on it.

Aren’t PBS and NPR favorites of affluent white people? Why does stuff they like need subsidies? Why didn’t government save Firefly?

This is a really late gripe, but the fact that the NES version of Donkey Kong was missing the pie level is inexcusable. I didn’t even know the pie level existed until I played a lowtech TI version of the game. Anyway, Nintendo, you ruined approximately one one-millionth of my childhood with your lazy port of Donkey Kong.

  1. “Anyway, Nintendo, you ruined approximately one one-millionth of my childhood with your lazy port of Donkey Kong.”

    When I was porting over Donkey Kong, I said to myself; self this ought to get FrankJ’s goat, just leave out the pie level, then later you can laugh evilly because of it.

    “A great Romney fundraising idea would be to sell handkerchiefs with notes of Obama’s failures on it.”
    They call those tents

  2. My favorite response the the “magic underwear” comment is that if that were true there would be a bunch of people walking around sporting tails or other assorted permanent additions. Same hold true for the handkerchief I would think. Why waste it on winning the debate, why not go for taking over the world? Of course Romney wouldn’t be interested in that, who’d really want to be in charge of such a demented mess anyway.

  3. What did Romney really say about PBS? With all the hyperventilating going on about it, you’d think people would have actual quotes or something. Unless, of course, it’s all spin.

  4. Peregrine John:

    MR. ROMNEY: What things would I cut from spending? Well, first of all, I will eliminate all programs by this test — if they don’t pass it: Is the program so critical it’s worth borrowing money from China to pay for it? And if not, I’ll get rid of it. “Obamacare” is on my list. I apologize, Mr. President. I use that term with all respect.

    PRESIDENT OBAMA: I like it.

    MR. ROMNEY: Good. OK, good. (Laughter.) So I’ll get rid of that. I’m sorry, Jim. I’m going to stop the subsidy to PBS. I’m going to stop other things. I like PBS. I love Big Bird. I actually like you too. But I’m not going to — I’m not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for it. That’s number one.

  5. Obama spent the entire debate studying his podium carefully, and it’s Romney who must have had a cheatsheet?

    So, where was Romney looking all night? Directly at Obama. Of course! Obama’s not black, he’s just covered in ink!
