***THE OFFICIAL FRIDAY SILLINESS THREAD***

Posted on 10/05/2012 5:40:30 AM PDT by Lucky9teen

DEBATE THIS!

The presidential debate Wednesday night was the most tweeted about event in political history, and, it's still being talked about this morning.

Jon Stewart, appearing on Good Morning America today to tout his own upcoming debate (Saturday in Washington) with Bill O'Reilly, assessed President Obama and Mitt Romney.

"I think we can all be satisfied in this election that no matter what happens, we're going to have an incredibly good-looking president," cracked Stewart. "That was some beefcake up there last night. The two of them. And when they take this thing into the swimsuit competition...."

He continued: "There's not a country in the world ... put those two up against what? (German Chancellor Angela) Merkle?"

He added that now, "Obama realizes, 'Oh, pre-season's over. I should probably familiarize myself with my presidency and learn some of the various numbers and things that go along...' I thought he had a very difficult night. And I'm concerned he may not re-elect us."

The debate night was the most tweeted about event in political history, and stars weighed in.

Alec Baldwin: "Obama is a potentially great man who remains mildly uncomfortable in public life. Mitt is a gifted off-shore money tycoon and tax preparer." And, "2 judge these men from these debates is ridiculous. Obama is a 21st Century Democrat. He wants as much change as corp America will allow."

Mia Farrow: "I love great schools I love Big Bird I like coal Not feeling the coal-love"

Lady Gaga: "I believe its important to note before this begins that Romney is a millionaire and paid well below the average tax rate, paying only 13.9%."

Samuel L. Jackson: "What future generations is Mitt the guardian of?! I think dude just wants to add Leader Of The Free World to his resume'!"

Dean Cain, who tweeted a lot about the debate: "Romney looks like the next President to me. I'm looking forward to next year. #Romney"

Michael Moore: "Ok, here's my optimistic tweet: Romney didn't convince a single Obama voter to change their vote. But O needed to fire up the base. Not done."

Bill Maher: "my rating: Romney won the debate, Obama had the facts on his side, and Lehrer sucked. Next debate, get @SethMacFarlane to host!"

Rob Lowe: "Watched a lot of debates, that was a real blood-letting. #POTUSwiffs#Mittenssticks


Just as Big Bird became a trending topic the instant Mitt Romney brought him up, moderator Jim Lehrer got his share of attention, from criticism to parody to sympathy.

Tweeted Chris Rock: "Both candidates debated poorly. Obama is thinking about his anniversary. Romney is nervous near a black man. Jim Lehrer is made out of clay."

Julia Louis-Dreyfus: "What r u doing, Jim Lehrer? What r u doing?!"

Al Roker cracked: "I hope Jim Lehrer gets the license plate of the truck that drove over him in this debate."

FunnyorDie noted: "'Poor Jim' is trending worldwide. So at least Jim Lehrer has that going for him. #debate2012"

Said Andy Cohen: "I sympathize with Jim Lehrer - sometimes its hard getting control over passionate people! #RH"

And emerging during it all was @Silent Jim Lehrer page, which included tweets such as, "um... I..."

I finally got around to going fishing this mornin but after a while I ran out of worms.

Then I saw a cottonmouth with a frog in his mouth, and frogs are good bass bait.

Knowing the snake couldn’t bite me with the frog in his mouth, I grabbed him right behind the head, took the frog and put it in my bait bucket.

Now the dilemma was how to release the snake without getting bit.

I grabbed my bottle of Jack Daniels and poured a little whiskey in its mouth.

His eyes rolled back, he went limp, I released him into the lake without incident, and carried on my fishing with the frog.

A little later, I felt a nudge on my foot.

There was that same snake with two frogs in his mouth.

Obama says he doesn’t know who the look-alike was who was on stage with him claiming to be Mitt Romney.

On the other hand, Mitt Romney says he doesn’t know who the look-alike was who was on stage with him acting like he had just been awakened from a nap.

Michael Moore has suggested that Obama’s biggest failing in Wednesday’s debate was using John Kerry as a sparring partner.

Mitt Romney stated that he practiced against an empty chair. Said Romney, “Actually, the chair was tougher.”

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-years phase-in plan that would become know as “Euro-English.”

In the first year, “s” will replace the soft “c.” Sertainly, this will make sivil servants jump for joy. The hard “c” will be dropped in favour of “k.” This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome “ph” will be replaced with “f.” This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent “e” in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.

By the 4th year, people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing “th” with “z” and “w” with “v.”

During the fifz yer, ze unesasary “o” kan be droped from vords kontaining “ou” and after ziz fifz yer, we vil hav a rel sensibl riten styl. Zer wil be no more trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.

Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.

Gore said that the altitude affected Obama’s performance in the debate.

But Obama delivered a wonderful acceptance speech in Denver four years ago to thousands of people who were smitten by the Obama rhetoric and presence.

When Gore was asked about that, he said “The altitude affected the voters.”

If counting on Biden to save the day, the Obama campaign has decided to attack Romney on the basis of who is more trustworthy.

ARE THEY NUCKIN’ FUTS??????????

Sorry, Lucky, life is too silly today. Maybe we need an Official Friday Seriousness Thread for a break from it.

That wasn't a debate. That was Mitt Romney strapping Obama to the fender of his car and taking him for a ride in the countryside.



Top 16 Obama excuses for his debate performance.

-Wasted my prep time watching anti-Mormon YouTube videos.

-It's difficult to rehearse for a debate while you're on the back nine. I need a new caddy.

-Thought I could wing it... just like I did the past 4 yrs.

-My dog ate my notes. Then I ate my dog.

-How can I be expected to frame a proper Straw-man argument when my opponent is in the same room?

-I Got 99 Reasons and as soon as they give my teleprompter back, I'll tell you.

-Hey, an empty chair beat Eastwood at a debate, I thought this would be way easier.

-I was trying deliver my speech, but this guy kept contradicting me with a lot facts. Numbers too. What was that about?

-The MARIJUANA here in DENVER is much more potent than me & the CHOOM GANG bargained for!

-.Its those damn job-killing ATMs fault.

-An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts!

-I didn't debate like my lady parts depended on it.

-Couldn't concentrate because Chris Matthew kept sexting me.

-I'm not saying it was aliens... but it was aliens.

-Someone in the Romney camp sent me a carton of Newports and I came out oxygen-deprived.

-I was obviously the victim of debate-place violence.
