Taki’s editors weigh in with the most entertaining post-debate analysis so far:
Mitt Romney kicked Barack Obama’s ass so thoroughly Wednesday night, Attorney General Eric Holder has considered charging him with a hate crime.
This gives us throbbing levels of immensely transcendent galaxy-tripping joy…
To think that this wasn’t some sort of intentional and possibly orchestrated campaign to create an aura of invincibility around Obama’s greying head and thus discourage undecided voters and Romney supporters from even bothering to yank the lever on November 6 is, quite candidly, a sign of either naiveté, denial, or Down syndrome. Possibly all three. (…)
The sclerotic and possibly senile Jim Lehrer, looking as if croissants had been surgically implanted under his eyes, briefly returned from the crypt to moderate Wednesday’s debate. Obama looked nearly as fatigued as Lehrer, but at least he used his “white” accent and left his blackness in the dressing room.
Entirely absent was the corn-shucking Kingfish inflection he used while sucking up to Reverend Jeremiah Wright in front of an adoring black crowd in 2007.
Still, at times he acted a bit too uppity for our tastes and behaved like someone who clearly didn’t understand his place in society.
And that’s only the half-way mark.
