10:40 ok now the pro-obama stampede.
10:29 yesterday in carlisle, at the halloween parade, police had to taser a man who was jumping in front of the children to grab the halloween candy.
10:22 romney actually can't do anything ith this gun control question; he starts into education and opportunity, believe it or not.
10:21 i've been stockpiling artillery pieces before the ban.
10:17 candy is actually fact-checking on the fly. she is very very sharp.
10:08 they are quite combative. candy had to sit mitt down just now. but actually it's a relatively lively debate on that interpersonal clash level, despite the lapses into boilerplate.
10:03 obama is good on attacking romney tonight. the right balance of aggression and restraint. he is much much less convincing on his own record, a blank on what happens next. it's hard, actually, not to be disappointed even if one's expectations for obama were relatively realistic.
9:55 ok it's getting to be nappy time. boilerplate.
9:40 women! you are beautiful! romney: "they brought me binders full of women."
9:27 hasn't romney developed an entirely new tax program?? now he will not under any circumstances reduce the taxes of the top whatever.
9:26 say romney caps deductions, so that middle-class families don't pay more, but people in top brackets do. why isn't that a tax increase in the current republican vernacular? what does grover norquist say?
9:24 obama says 'good-paying' rather than 'well-paying.' thank god.
9:20 whoa they are going at it on energy policy: approaching one another, interrupting each other, contradicting eac other.
9:16 we ought to get off coal, man, and stop blowing up mountains.
9:15 romney is standing up ok, though.
9:14 focus group approval plemmets as soon as obama starts attcking romney.
9:13 obama: 'this is what i've done: natural gas production is at its highest level in decades.' he did that?
9:12 obama is doing very well indeed at the moment.
9:07 if education were the key to employment, all these kids wouldn't be unemployed.
9:03 they should kiss like sacha baron cohen and will farrell in the ballad of ricky bobby.
8:57 i hope al qaeda shows.
8:11 if i were advising obama, i'd tell him to go for shock and awe tonight. contest or at least snicker derisively at every assertion. insult the man's looks and stuff; maybe actually do an impression; the mitt romney robot is always a winner. use all that oppo research on his mom. his base really wants to see obama aggressive, ready to lead them in a march to a glittering future, over the corpses of their enemies.
7:43 i am so much a better pundit than all these cunts on television, and i'll tell you why. i really don't have a stake in who wins, see? you have to be an anarchist or a fascist or a marxist-leninist-maoist or an utter enigma even to yourself to see what's really going on, otherwise you are blinded by your pitiful partisanship. actually i of course do not claim to be objective simpliciter . in the everyday way i am riddled with all sorts of irrational preferences, hideous blindpots, and so on. but i do claim to be more objective along partisan political lines than anyone else. in the whole world.
