Here’s a humorous look at Tuesday’s Presidential debate, as seen through a flock of tweets. In the spirit of equal-opportunity mocking, no serious issues or responses have been included, and no one candidate looks sillier than the other.
Hey, we deserve it, after all the robo-calls, advertisements, and spin-doctors we’ve had to endure, right?

Hope you got a kick out of these tweets. How do you cope with the onslaught of politics everywhere you turn? I’d love to hear from you!
Until next time,

The Onion had a funny article and I liked it because it didn’t single out one candidate. So, fun for all! http://www.theonion.com/articles/nation-tunes-in-to-see-which-sociopath-more-likabl,29946/
“(Which one will)…win them over with the perfect combination of superficial charm, deluded grandeur, and pathological lying” – OMG, Andrew, that was a terrific article! Thanks so much for posting it. 😀
LOL! Thanks Kathy, so funny! I just love people’s creativity and sense of humor. I think it is one of our most important evolutionary advantages. And speaking of apes…naw, not gonna go there…hehe.
Wink, wink, I know, Shannon! Let’s not open THAT can of apes, LOL. There were so many clever tweets out there, it was hard to choose! Thanks for stopping by. 😀
I deal with the political onslaught by reading stuff like this, and avoiding everything else :-D. Nice collection of tweets, love it!
You are wise, O Melinda… I think that’s the right way to go!
Thanks for the laughs. I think we should just cut to the chase and put lie detectors on both candidates for the next debate. Think how much time we’d save if they didn’t have to spend so much of it accusing one another of prevarication.
Maybe the electrodes could be attached to “sensitive” body parts and zap them when they lie, LOL. Thanks, Jane!
Amen, Ladies!! And it’s always amazing to me how well they know EACH OTHER’S platforms.
Oops, I missed your comment, Jenny – sorry to be getting back to you so late! Absolutely agree…and what’s that Bible phrase about taking the plank out of your own eye before pointing out the speck in someone else’s? Thanks for stopping by!
I’m kaughing, Kathy, which is more than I was doing Tuesday night. Thanks for this post. (I’m slipping back into the binder, now. )
Oops, look out for the binder! But ya know, at least it’s given us a few laughs…
Presidential Hunger Games! I love that one!!
Oh, me too! Along with the Star Wars/ends-up-as-a-cyborg one. 🙂 Thanks, Coleen!
I’m so ready for this all to be behind us. No matter who wins there will be complaints, blaming, finger-pointing, name-calling. Nothing’s going to change except we’ll get our regular television viewing schedule back. And probably people wiill stop talking about Big Bird.

LOL, Patricia! So true. 🙂
I was tweeting, too. It was a much more enjoyable way to experience the debate. @ChuckWendig had some fabulous #fakedebate tweets!
Maybe you should put together a special collection, Renee!
I would sure like to see President Obama stand up for gun control. Instead we got:
“I believe that it may soon be coming to a time when we can start a broader dialogue on the issue of whether assault weapons may possibly perhaps be considered for some minor consideration, but remember I AM A FIRM BELIEVER IN THE SECOND AMENDMENT, and of course there are many other sources of violence that must be addressed while addressing them in the context of addressing ….”
I understand why the President chooses to duck the issue for now. He wouldn’t be elected. But if you are elected, Mr. President, how about you do us proud, stand up to the crazies, and do something!
Wow. We need to sic an English teacher on these guys, or at least have a rule: Subject-Predicate-Object ONLY.
Thank you KB. This political season leaves me with little to laugh about so I am happy for any laugh I can get.
Jay, I’m convinced that laughing is just about the only constructive thing we can do about the situation…. So glad you paid a visit, thanks. 😀
