As I watched the debates, I had my Android tablet on my lap with a live Twitter stream. It immediately became apparent that the rather dry debate on television was going to be rivaled by witty American’s everywhere. For the first time I laughed so hard tears rolled down my face, so I thought I’d summarize “the best of” for you to enjoy. My apologies if anything is offensive, but darn it, they were funny. Add your own personal favorites in the comment section below and give due credit.
@gov: 17,000 tweets per minute for “Big Bird” and 10,000 tweets per minute for “PBS” #debates
@mattbinder: OCCUPY SESAME STREET we gotta’ do it for Big Bird! #DebateDenver #debate2012
@Howtobeadad: I will give either candidate a million dollars if they say the word “vagina” during debates.
@jillfilipovic: Romney’s American Flag pin is bigger than Obama’s American Flag pin. Crap. Romney clearly loves America more.
@lauriewrites: Yelling “He’s SUCH A TOOLBAG” just now where I am may have been inappropriate, but I couldn’t help it. I need a nanny.
@Firedbigbird: Somewhere Paul Ryan is kicking over trash cans in hopes of smoking out Oscar the Grouch.
@Vruno: I am hearing Charlie Brown’s teacher’s voice each time Obama speaks tonight.
@Chrisrockoz: I wish Mitt Romney could figure out how to smile without looking like he’s at his mother-in-laws house for xmas dinner.
@mommyologist: Next time, they should get a mom to serve as a moderator. Just a suggestion.
@chaddarnell: Can we book Clint Eastwood’s chair to moderate next debate?
@JerseyTodd: Let’s be honest, watching Biden/Ryan debate is going to be like watching nascar just to see who crashes in the wall first.
@kate_childs: What did we learn during #debate? If you run a brand account (like @KitchenAidUSA) always check 3X if tweets are from work or personal handles.
And my own favorite?
@confessionsmom: Angry Birds’ creators scrambling to get Big Bird in a sling shot aimed at failed moderator structure #debate
