The Rules of the Game

The above comic came out just before the first debate, so you’ll forgive the cartoonist if he forgot the latest rule: “you can lie as much as you want, as long as you act like the alpha dog”.

    I listened to the debate on the radio, so I wasn’t distracted by the visuals. It’s a completely different debate with only audio, with vocal inflections and content.

    There is a photo out today showing that Mitt Romney cheated on the debate rules and brought a cue card which he tried to hide as he was getting set at the podium.

    How bad has our politics become when our top candidates for President include a liar, a cheater, and a thief that stole the value of companies by borrowing money to buy them and then sticking them with the debt?

    And that’s just the REPUBLICAN candidate.

    Arthanyel, I’m not sure if the cue card rumor is true. It is just as likely that it was a handkerchief he took out of his pocket and unfolded.

    That’s what his campaign said – a handkerchief. Lovingly embroidered with zingers.

    So assuming it was completely innocent, that makes him JUST a liar and a thief.
