Lots of people are talking about last night's presidential debate. Like, a lot of people! Almost as though this were an important thing. Anyway, here's my submission for the ten best…
"I've been watching presidential debates for quite a few years, but I have never seen one like this. It wasn’t a TKO, it was a knockout." - John Hinderaker
I'm not 100 percent clear on who John Hinderaker is, but he's been watching presidential debates for quite a few years, so I have no reason to doubt his expertise in these matters.
Hey, does anybody know if Sarah Palin has an opinion? I'll bet she does…

You may have heard rumors of the Obama phone if you listen to Rush Limbaugh or, if you are an old person, you may have forwarded an email about it to your grandchildren. Fact checkers have tried to disprove the existence of the Obama phone using facts. But now the world has all the proof it needs. According to this very credible-looking source, "everybody in Cleveland, no minority, got an Obama phone."
We have no reason to doubt her! We already know iPhone users are often big city liberals who, unlike welfare recipients, are prone to standing in long lines. We wondered what else the ObamaPhone had in common with the new iPhone 5…

While addressing the goodly crowd at Tony Perkins' annual Values Voter Summit this afternoon, Kirk Cameron lamented a sad reality of life that I think a lot of us know all too well…
"If only my name was Marty McFly and I had a DeLorean. And I could go back and talk to [the Founding Fathers] and asked them 'What are we doing wrong?'"
If only we could live and behave like a fictional character in an invented world that is not beholden everyday physics as is understood by science, one in which the bad guys are punished and the good guys live happily ever after. Sigh. If only…
Alas. I suppose Kirk Cameron and all the other conservative Christians who are attending the Values Voter Summit with him this weekend will just have to make due with their Biblical interpretation of reality. At least until they're all raptured away while the rest of us are hurled into a lake of fire that shall never be quenched.

According to some recent polling, Rep. Paul Ryan is currently a bit more popular that V.P. Joe Biden. Or as The Hill puts it, "Paul Ryan has had a higher favorability rating than Vice President Biden in every major nonpartisan national poll since the Wisconsin lawmaker was picked for the GOP vice presidential slot." In the newest, Ryan has a 49 favorable/38 unfavorable to Biden's 47/46, putting him 12 points higher.
Impressive. Though, not quite as impressive as it sounds. Because the fact of the matter is, there are plenty of things that are much more popular than Joe Biden. Here's just a small list…

Wow! All of CNN's envelope-pushing technological experiments — giant iPads, holograms, walk-through pie charts, Wolf Blitzer beard enhancements — seem to really be paying off. Looks like the cable channel's team of scientists have managed to figure out how to communicate through a combination of campaign talking points and quantum political spin live via satellite across different realities in the Multiverse! Amazing!
Here, watch as CNN anchor Soledad O'Brien and Mitt Romney surrogate discuss Barack Obama's, Mitt Romney's and Paul Ryan's Medicare plans, as each person is dealing with two completely distinct and non-overlapping sets of facts!
Wow! That is some mind-blowing stuff. My one criticism of O'Brien's interview is that she didn't ask Sununu what ice cream tastes like in his universe. I have this theory that it might taste like sardines. Just a hunch.
