The vice presidential contenders – incumbent Democrat Joe Biden and the not-yet-named GOP candidate–will debate only once, on Oct. 11 at Centre College in Danville, Ky., over domestic and foreign policy.

21. And let there be no winking on this occasion.

I don't expect sparkling repartee from the GOP VP candidate, either, but the winking definitely has to be consigned to the scrap heap of history.

4. Romney is confident

his handlers are shitting their pantaloons.

The debate will go as well as between an eggplant and a smart sitting president (that is until the media twists it into opposite world again). Can't wait!

5. ...

"Mr. Romney, what is your go-forward plan with respect to unemployment, energy self-efficiency, and the situation in the Middle East?"

"I think you people have everything you need to know on those topics. Next question, please?"

6. BRING 'EM ON!!!!!!!!!!

I wonder if the Mittwitt is going to try to do what Bushiebaby did in his debates - lower the expectations?

I sincerely hope Obama doesn't let him get away with it, if he tries.

8. Because Colorado is on the East coast?

And starting at 9:00 PM PST is midnight on the east coast. Just maybe the candidates might want to be awake when they debate.

What d'ya think?

9. It's all 9pm EDST time, I care not the location

but rather I care about the time that it is aired LIVE.

However, as sometimes happens, I had a reverse
imagination about how the time change happens.

Sorry to inconvenience you or others with my
miscalculation. These times are actually very sensible
and fair to both coasts.

PS - I plan to delete post soon, so you can relax now.

15. Do I sense an accusatory assumption?

embedded in your message?

That I am over indulging with alcohol?


Unfortunately, drunkenness isn't the only explanation for a brain-fart.

At my age, I have all kinds of "conditions" I can cite,

that are every bit as convincingly debilitating.

16. No, not that

Actually, I was attempting to be flippant about the many faux pas that we all do here at DU. It was not meant to malign your post. I was as much poking fun at myself as anything.

Having the honesty to self-delete a post is a good thing. I do it, too. It is an honorable DU thing.

I apologize for the tone of my post, which I will forthwith self-delete.

It really did mean a lot to me to read it.

And I apologize for "projecting" my assumptions onto your post

23. No problem

I'm an old hand at DU. It is easy to miscue when you are merely typing, when the silly smirk is missed, or the wink. I often put a smiley to indicate intent, but even that sometimes doesn't prevent an episode of DU chair throwing.

DU needs more like you. Glad that you're around.

11. I can't see weak assed lieing Romney wanting to go against

Game Master Obama in a head to head.

but

Romney does have the media on his side, let's not forget how 'great' the Chimperor was in his debates according to the paid shit stained journalistic shills

12. What's really funny is the people in the Romney Camp...

...really believe Obama is helpless without a teleprompter.

That's the conclusion the Right Wing Bubble has reached.

14. oiy, I know

The President is so much above those protozoas in his intellectualism and humanism I can't believe there is a game here at all between the two except:

Repugs harvest ignorance
Barack Obama harvests the common sense good in us all
