Still feeling the Rocky Mountain High from the first Presidential debate? We sure are.
Others will fact check — we can't — we're dumb. Think of us as "fun checkers." Isn't that adorbz?
Anyway, here are the five flat-out dumbest moments of the night with our ribbing for your pleasure:
1. Duelling Flag Pins
Guys, it's embarrassing showing up to a party wearing the same patriotic bling. Well, not exactly the same — Romney's was two millimeters bigger than Obama's. That means he loves America more, right?
2. Big Bird
The mellow yellow icon was shown some love by Romney — the same guy who had just pledged to de-feather his PBS nest if elected. Even dumber, Twitter parody accounts sprouted faster than bird seed in fresh manure. Lots of attention whores people started tweeting as Big Bird and then lemmings people flocked to follow them. Cue the inevitable articles about social media being important written for the AARP set, who will, inevitably, still have no clue what it is. e.g. "Social media? That's new fangled clap trap! Now go back to yer Phasebook and git off my lawn!"
3. The Big Bang
A little over an hour in it sounded like something crashed behind the candidates. Was it a Secret Service agent passing out from boredom? Or was it, as Mo Rocca tweeted, the sound of Big Bird shooting himself?
4. Obama on his iPhone?
The president was
looking down at his lectern way too much. Were you people
sending the Barry-in-Chief Scrabble requests during the debate?
5. Time's Up
When Lehrer said the candidates needed to move on and were going over time Mitt Romney replied, "It's fun isn't it? That's good!" Say wha? Then when Lehrer said Obama went over the prez apologized with a polite 'n contrite "sorry" two different times. But then Obama got peeved and told Lehrer "you interrupted me." The crowd kind of overreacted to this. Then again, Obama is the guy who smoked Bin Laden, so maybe you don't wanna mess with him.
