From my Twitter feed during tonight’s presidential debate…

  • In an insta-poll right after the debate, 100% of respondents were pissed off that a pollster was calling to bother them at home. 
  • Thanks to Candy Crowley and Martha Raddatz, women have taken a huge lead in the Moderator Gender Wars. It all comes down to Schieffer. 
  • Tonight’s questioners now know what every political reporter knows — candidates NEVER answer a question directly or with specifics. 
  • How many undecided voters make up their minds based on China’s currency manipulation? How many even know what it is? I don’t, nor do I care.
  • That was the first time I’ve ever seen a moderator fact-check a candidate’s statement DURING the debate. Nice job, Candy Crowley!
  • All of the questions tonight are better than anything Jim Lehrer asked (citizen journalists!). 
  • Am I the only one who noticed the old guy in the polo shirt in the front row who looka like he’s falling asleep?
  • Despite claims by both candidates, no president will ever be tough on China – they’re the landlord!
  • The middle class must be thrilled to hear Romney say they won’t have to pay taxes on the huge 0.02% interest they earn on their savings accounts.
