With the presidential election in the balance, prep talk
about Thursday’s debate has entered the realm of the fantastical. The Nincompoop in
Chief is praised as “a great debater” by
Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe.
Even The Washington Post claims the ninny’s got great facial maneuvers: Although
“many people recoil at his famous smirk,” the ninny “knows how to signal incredulity with a
slightly cocked head and a flicker of eyebrow-arch.” And let’s not forget:
His more emphatic brows-raised, lips-puckered look says: ‘Get a load of that
blowhard.’ He has a half-wink that signals he is about to land a punch and a half-squint that says, ‘I
really, really mean what I’m saying now.'”
Whoops. The Democrats forgot to negotiate a Botox clause for the 32 pages of rules dictating the
debate format. Is it too late to renegotiate? John (“Stone Face”) Kerry has
built-in Botox. Fair is fair. Level the playing field: Botox the ninny.
