In the run-up to the first (official) presidential debate of the 2012, I couldn’t help but be reminded of this line out of the mock vp-debate Saturday Night Live showed four years ago:
“Due to the historically low expectations for Gov. Palin, were she simply to do an adequate job tonight, at no point cry, faint, run out of the building or vomit, you should consider the debate a tie.”
President Obama didn’t faint, run out of the building, vomit or cry (at least not on stage), but I’m sure plenty of Obama supporters will have. From the too rehearsed, unnatural intro that Obama delivered, to his final lackluster statement, the debate went almost entirely Romney’s way.
