Fox’s Megyn Kelly Has Questions About The Liberal Communist Maoist Questions Picked For The Debate

by Kris E. Benson

Thank God we have Megyn Kelly to explain why Romney shit the bed on so many of the questions in last night’s Happy Lovey Hoe-Down Sing-Along — it’s probably because of Candy Crowley, but it’s MOSTLY because of the American public with their stupid concerns. Why did they have such LIBERAL concerns? Real Americans care about the deficit, the fiscal cliff, taxes, bombing more Muslins, and the deficit, though not in that order. So the REAL question is, who picked these people and let them ask questions? Hmm? And why did they ask about stuff we already know from before? Megyn Kelly predicts that there will be questions about that, just questions, that’s all.

And the pandering, my God, the pandering, what with telling women they should get paid for their work. Megyn’s not saying that there was something suspicious about the people selected for the debate, she’s just saying that there will be “questions” about it, that’s all. You know, “questions” like they might have had in, say, a show trial during the Cultural Revolution.

What we are saying is Megyn Kelly loves Mao.

Can we delete four minutes of Megyn too, also?

actor212 October 17, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Oh, I'm thinking an excision that's exponentially longer.

With votes, I mean.

Estproph October 17, 2012 at 5:09 pm

How about 4 feet instead?

ShreditorsDesk October 17, 2012 at 5:11 pm

Maybe can we photoshop her into a teeny bikini and hit the mute button?

paxromanaclef October 17, 2012 at 5:30 pm

How about the ~4 minutes when she was -9 months old?

LionHeartSoyDog October 18, 2012 at 2:07 am

Yes, or the sometime later when it was a microscopic blood clot.

snowpointsecret October 17, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Liberal questions with phrases such as "I am disappointed in the last four years." Did she just out Rick Santorum as a secret liberal?

Biel_ze_Bubba October 17, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Meh. Do you have ways of making her stop?

Designer_Rants October 17, 2012 at 6:52 pm

Mm… no.

TribecaMike October 17, 2012 at 4:54 pm

As Mitt would say, All our sluts is armed.

actor212 October 17, 2012 at 5:24 pm

I'm thinking the last person Megyn Kelly wants to pick a fight with is Candy Crowley.

Not only can she kick her ass, she's not going to be worried about mussing her hair or makeup.

Megyn is toast.

rocktonsam October 17, 2012 at 4:55 pm

O'Reilly–" Kelly, where the fuck is my coffee?!! "

Kelly- " coming sir"

calliecallie October 17, 2012 at 6:00 pm

And don't forget to bring my sammitch this time!

hagajim October 17, 2012 at 6:25 pm

And don't forget the damn loofah this time.

LionHeartSoyDog October 18, 2012 at 2:10 am

Not coming, but "I'll fake it, Sir."

(for the $).

Chet Kincaid_ October 17, 2012 at 4:55 pm

Pfftt, these trifling "women's questions"! Megyn's vag is clearly in the binder for Mitt.

DerrickWildcat October 17, 2012 at 5:52 pm

She used to have long flowing whore hair until she had a baby. Since then, she's doing the shoulder length hair to show she is a respectable Mom and not some slutty Fox call girl.
True story. Do a GIS.

Chet Kincaid_ October 17, 2012 at 5:56 pm

"General Intestinal Search"?!

tessiee October 17, 2012 at 10:48 pm

I will say, however, that babbies love to grab a handful of long hair and pull.

TribecaMike October 17, 2012 at 6:37 pm

She's a woman full of binders.

Here's my question for Megan Kelly:

Did you ask your plastic surgeon to give you a "Joan Rivers-esque" look, and do you intend to keep it as you age further?

edgydrifter October 17, 2012 at 4:56 pm

This from the lady who thought "Bay of Pigs" was a pejorative reference to San Francisco.

AlterNewt October 17, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Bless her. So many things 'don't make sense'.

Stuff is hard.

Esteev October 17, 2012 at 5:00 pm

So are things!

actor212 October 17, 2012 at 5:07 pm

And if not, there's always viagra

Esteev October 17, 2012 at 5:09 pm

That's revealing

actor212 October 17, 2012 at 5:12 pm

Um, so I've been told

Mumbletypeg October 17, 2012 at 5:06 pm

It reminds me why I so often notice Obama prefacing with "…Let me be clear." Because so often with the ignoranti it needs to be explained patiently, as to a six-year-old.
To be fair Newt used this phrase just about as often but he always sounded more defensive, as perhaps comes with a lifetime of pedantic exculpating of his extra-curricular's.

snowpointsecret October 17, 2012 at 5:11 pm

Joe Biden thinks what she's saying is a bunch of stuff.

LionHeartSoyDog October 18, 2012 at 2:14 am

Repugs are limp, without hatred.
Reality is hard, for haters.

KathrynSane October 17, 2012 at 4:56 pm

To paraphrase a great and infinitely wise man: reality has a well-known liberal bias.

ManchuCandidate October 17, 2012 at 4:57 pm

Questions now have a liebrul bias!

Honestly, how smart do you think Megan is if she can't spell her name correctly.

Dashboard_Jesus October 18, 2012 at 12:41 am

oh she spelt it right alright cuz nothin' spells cunt like Me-GYN!

dr_giraud October 17, 2012 at 4:57 pm

Of course Megyn Kelly loves Mao. She loves all those funny Japanese cats on YouTube.

snowpointsecret October 17, 2012 at 4:58 pm

Chairman Meow?

memzilla October 17, 2012 at 5:03 pm

She also loves Kitler.

rickmaci October 17, 2012 at 5:12 pm

and Kitt Romoney

BadKitty904 October 17, 2012 at 4:57 pm

As I've noted before – "The peasants are revolting", etc.

Negropolis October 17, 2012 at 9:51 pm

Mao had an app for that.

Jus_Wonderin October 17, 2012 at 4:58 pm

Megyn honey. Do this for me, will you? Go to Kroger and buy a Zuccini Squash. Then, drive over to Sonic and buy a Chili-Cheese Coney. Then, hang a right at the Chase Bank and go to the tool department at Home Depot. Pick out a flathead screwdriver. Any of them will do. Yes, pink is fine. Your choice. Buy it.

Now go out in the parking lot. Put the Squash in a shopping cart and roll it toward the largest SUV in the sight. Give the Coney to that day laborer over there hanging out by the tree.

Now here is the important part. Stick the business end of the screwdriver up your fucking twat and whistle.

Estproph October 17, 2012 at 5:12 pm

Priceless! Best laugh I've had in a week!

Jus_Wonderin October 17, 2012 at 5:48 pm

Thanks. I, like any great author, let the characters tell me their story. I didn't know how it was going to end either. Some characters and stories just write themselves.

tessiee October 17, 2012 at 10:43 pm

"Stick the business end of the screwdriver up your fucking twat and whistle."

Too abortiony.

Jus_Wonderin October 18, 2012 at 6:20 am

Sorry Tessie. I just figured she was an empty husk.

Dashboard_Jesus October 18, 2012 at 1:07 am

so many kinds of awesome, well done sir *golf clap*

SexySmurf October 17, 2012 at 4:58 pm

Americans have a liberal bias; they're not to be trusted.

calliecallie October 17, 2012 at 6:02 pm

Please let's hope that is really true. The librul bias part.

Callyson October 17, 2012 at 4:59 pm

"In fact, there were a lot of women's issues discussed"

All of which made Mittens' backwardness crystal clear, beeyatch…

Native_of_SL_UT October 17, 2012 at 6:15 pm

Discussing Women's issues? That's like totally out of the blue. This is the first of heard of any women issues.

Angry_Marmot October 17, 2012 at 6:59 pm

Leviticus 15,19- 30: That which issues from women shall require them to go sit under a binder, yea verily, also.

actor212 October 17, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Hey, um, Megyn?

Those people you're making fun of….you know they live pretty close to FOX News studios, don't you?

VodkaGoGo October 17, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Questions have a well known liberal bias Megyn, you're fired.

EnnuiThereYet? October 17, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Mr. Romney, America's women want to know, do you prefer your sandwiches with or without crust? And as a follow-up question, cut into triangles or rectangles?

iburl October 17, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Why did they let the lady with the hispanic accent talk? Obviously it was a trap because Mitt has never directly addressed such a person except to scream "You scraped my car elevator De Loretta!! You are Fired-o!!

JustPixelz October 17, 2012 at 6:39 pm

Adding, "I'm running for President for pete's sake."

SayItWithWookies October 17, 2012 at 5:00 pm

"Some might argue it was obvious pandering to women because the female vote is so important in this election."

Yeah, why can't 50% of this country just shut up and do what Mitt tells them to do?

Native_of_SL_UT October 17, 2012 at 6:20 pm

Uh, Megyn, I hate to break this to you, but unless a politician is soliciting for sex, the only other thing they do when their mouths are open is pander to someone or another.

hagajim October 17, 2012 at 6:26 pm

And the other 47% as well.

tessiee October 17, 2012 at 10:45 pm

Seems fair, since he lets them leave work at 5 to go home and fix dinner.

Schmannnity October 17, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Blond Fox Twat #37 has questions.

Biel_ze_Bubba October 17, 2012 at 5:00 pm

"Where are your tax returns?" would be a liberal question.

"What the fuck, exactly, do you plan to do if elected?" is a fair one, IMO.

actor212 October 17, 2012 at 5:03 pm

Fairness has a liberal bias.

Esteev October 17, 2012 at 5:06 pm

Algorithms too, also.

Plus tag fail

Forget it — do a google image search of "completely wrong". I'm done.

kittensdontlie October 17, 2012 at 6:40 pm

Ask Mitt no questions, and he won't tell you any lies.

Lascauxcaveman October 17, 2012 at 7:14 pm

Oh, yes he will. Can't help himself.

Biel_ze_Bubba October 18, 2012 at 12:50 am

Hah. "I'll be pleased to answer any questions you might have."

Callyson October 17, 2012 at 5:01 pm

"some of which was obvious pandering to women, because the women's vote is so important in this election"

Yeah, because discussing issues that are important to just over 50% of the population and that were neglected in the previous debate (which was supposed to be about domestic policy) and pandering are completely the same thing.

Bitch.

Biel_ze_Bubba October 17, 2012 at 6:29 pm

What about the pandering to the just under 50% of the population (oh, say, about 47%) who are irresponsible moochers?

HateMachine October 17, 2012 at 6:37 pm

I'd really, really like for the Romney campaign to join Megyn on this one and piss and moan about all the vag questions. After all, if women asking questions about lady-specific concerns is evidence of bias, that's as good as admitting that your platform has nothing to offer over half the voting populace (for starters, anyway).

elviouslyqueer October 17, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Where is my dentist and his goddamn drill when I need him? Jesus.

Jus_Wonderin October 17, 2012 at 5:39 pm

The HVAC left his at my house the other day. Want to borrow it? Oh, I see, not the right kind of drill, is it?

Angry_Marmot October 17, 2012 at 7:01 pm

Is it safe?

SmutBoffin October 17, 2012 at 5:01 pm

If Important News Reporter Lady Kelly belonged to a network that did actual reporting rather than just repeating headlines and making up innuendo and letting big-headed people yell at each other, she might even get answers to those questions!

Lascauxcaveman October 17, 2012 at 7:16 pm

If Kelly belonged to a network that did actual reporting, she might also be asking better questions, too.

Boojum October 17, 2012 at 5:02 pm

If she has questions about the questions, who will question the question questioners?

kittensdontlie October 17, 2012 at 6:49 pm

Peter Piper, the boy who picked a peck of pickled peppers.

tessiee October 17, 2012 at 11:42 pm

DerrickWildcat October 17, 2012 at 5:03 pm

She is Ice Queen.

Chet Kincaid_ October 17, 2012 at 5:36 pm

Who would believe you were a beauty indeed
When the days get shorter and the nights get long?
Lie awake when the rain comes —
Nobody will know, when you're old!
When you're old, nobody will know
That you was a beauty, a sweet sweet beauty,
A sweet sweet booty, but stone stone cold!

MosesInvests October 17, 2012 at 5:53 pm

But I'm not hot for her.

Chet Kincaid_ October 17, 2012 at 5:03 pm

Perhaps she is upset that nobody from FOX news will be invited to moderate any debate involving a Democrat, ever and for all time?

Lot_49 October 17, 2012 at 5:33 pm

The combatants negotiate the format, moderators, etc, we're told. Romney's coat-holders probably asked for Steve Douche-y or Hannity or somebody like that, and the Obamaistas responded, "Sure, if we can have Rachel."

Jus_Wonderin October 17, 2012 at 5:52 pm

Oh, wouldn't that be great. Rachel! I watch that three times.

tessiee October 17, 2012 at 10:52 pm

Or respected, or taken seriously…

Esteev October 17, 2012 at 5:03 pm

So Megyn would rather the candidates stand there for 90 minutes and who ever doesn't speak wins? I guess Mitt technically did win in that format.

sullivanst October 17, 2012 at 6:29 pm

Well, he "spoke", he just didn't "say anything"

Rotundo_ October 17, 2012 at 5:04 pm

It must suck to know that you were selected to get nasty mean old men aroused rather than your analytic or journalistic abilities. To be one of Ailes blondies has to be humiliating. I hope they make at least half what they pay Hannity or O'Reilly or Douchey or any of the male gasbags at Faux.

Biel_ze_Bubba October 17, 2012 at 6:31 pm

The fraction is 3/5 … I'm not sure where they got that.

Schmannnity October 17, 2012 at 5:04 pm

Brilliant!

mavenmaven October 17, 2012 at 5:06 pm

When Fox News says "there will be questions", that means they know they lost and are working on the conspiracy theory to explain it away.

actor212 October 17, 2012 at 5:14 pm

Yes, it's their way of saying to the Koch Brothers "Help a sister out, willya? We're on deadline!"

coolhandnuke October 17, 2012 at 5:06 pm

….and the site of tonight's debate Jimmy Hoffsta University, more liberal bias. He was in a union I believe….

SexySmurf October 17, 2012 at 5:06 pm

To save time let's make a list of all the shit that does NOT have a liberal bias.

redarmyzombie October 17, 2012 at 5:20 pm

Um…Hitler?

HateMachine October 17, 2012 at 6:40 pm

Nope, he was a commie fascist and also hated Israel. Librul!

elviouslyqueer October 17, 2012 at 5:06 pm

From the ABC transcript:

CROWLEY: The Gallup organization chose 82 uncommitted voters from the New York area. Their questions will drive the night. My goal is to give the conversation direction and to ensure questions get answered. The questions are known to me and my team only. Neither the commission, nor the candidates have seen them. I hope to get to as many questions as possible.

Yes, Megyn, I can certainly see the bias inherent in 82 uncommitted voters who submit questions that are not pre-screened by either candidate. It's called a fucking free exchange a.k.a. "dialogue", you Botoxed screechy cuntbag.

Lot_49 October 17, 2012 at 5:35 pm

Crowley did get to pick the questions, though. She probably rejected the one that read "Why don't you go back to Kenya?" because Mitt wouldn't really have been able to answer it.

Biel_ze_Bubba October 17, 2012 at 6:33 pm

"Why don't you go back to Kenya or Mexico?" would have been fair.

ChillBill October 17, 2012 at 5:07 pm

Once again, those goddamn gotcha liberal media questions!

OneYieldRegular October 17, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Oh, so Mitt's piss-poor performance is due to the quality of the questions he got? I hope Ahmadinejad, Putin, Hu, etc. will be much more respectful in how they ask their questions, so as not to ruffle poor Mitt's feathers.

mavenmaven October 17, 2012 at 6:23 pm

"How do you like London so far?" was clearly beyond Romney's tolerance level.

BoatOfVelociraptors October 17, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Megyn is just annoyed that there were 99 questions and a bitch was one.

GeorgiaBurning October 17, 2012 at 5:11 pm

Cut her a little slack, besides the actual debate on tape she's sharing the split screen with a chipmunk impersonator

Angry_Marmot October 17, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Typical Tamias bias!

Disassembly October 17, 2012 at 5:12 pm

I have six studies that call into question the fairness of these questions.

Boojum October 17, 2012 at 5:43 pm

By "studies" you mean "chain emails".

OneYieldRegular October 17, 2012 at 5:58 pm

Seriously, the Romney campaign can't tell the difference between a study and a blog post? Next thing you know they'll be citing the Red State comments section as "empirical evidence."

Lascauxcaveman October 17, 2012 at 7:24 pm

Well, it's empirical evidence of something, mind you.

malsperanza October 17, 2012 at 10:24 pm

It's the concept of "double-blind peer review" that confuses them. They know it's something bad and liberal (because data have a liberal bias), but they're not sure if it's an aid program for visually impaired Rockettes or that thing Jerry Sandusky was caught doing.

poorgradstudent October 17, 2012 at 5:13 pm

Yeah, why would Americans be more concerned about employment and student loans than about the deficit? It doesn't make any sense!

HateMachine October 17, 2012 at 6:45 pm

Unfortunately, it's not because the interest on Treasury bonds is lower than the rate of inflation. I know this because when I try to explain this to real merkins and/or undecideds, their eyes glaze over and wisps of smoke begin to come out of their ears.

fuflans October 17, 2012 at 5:14 pm

i have been horrifically busy (at my hourly temp job which is what you get with 2 degrees from the university of chicago these days) but i am thoroughly enjoying wonkette's day of romney rumble rage.

it almost makes up for the last 10 sucky days.

BadKitty904 October 17, 2012 at 5:58 pm

Hear, hear!

Chet Kincaid_ October 17, 2012 at 6:07 pm

I'm glad you're feeling better about things. I admire you and Mr. fuflans for your campaign work.

tessiee October 17, 2012 at 11:05 pm

"my hourly temp job which is what you get with 2 degrees from the university of chicago these days"

THAT's where I've been going wrong!
My temp agency hasn't had much for me lately, and I'll just bet it's because I went to Ed & Larry University.
If only I'd gone to a name school, I, too, could be doing the same kind of clerical shitwork I was doing 20 years ago, for less money than I was making then.
Drat.

fuflans October 18, 2012 at 12:19 am

yes. not to be patronizing, but a degree from a highly credited institution with many noble laureates really does pay for itself in temp agency circles. everyone should carefully consider that when choosing an institution of higher learning.

(in truth i'm temping at mr fuflans law firm as i lost my (middle class professional service sector) job with exactly no notice and a good-bye check for exactly $200. you know those wacky job creators!! always looking for ways to make your life less boring!!

but i have NEVER been able to interest a temp agency. i'm (also) an actor and would LOVE to be able to just temp and act. but nothing. i think the degree doesn't help…)

rickmaci October 17, 2012 at 5:14 pm

Moar White Whine please.

GregComlish October 17, 2012 at 5:15 pm

Seriously, where were the questions about the Republicans strong suit: men. We need more big manly questions. Questions about war, steely ripped muscles, and large hard uncut shafts dripping with erotic anticipation.

tessiee October 17, 2012 at 11:06 pm

Also, rockets, hot dogs, loaves of French bread, cucumbers, and the Empire State Building.

ShreditorsDesk October 17, 2012 at 5:15 pm

I want to hear about this from Meagan Fox next.

finallyhappy October 17, 2012 at 5:19 pm

what about Megan Mullally or Kelly Ripa?

Angry_Marmot October 17, 2012 at 7:40 pm

Megalon Vs. Megafauna!

tessiee October 17, 2012 at 11:06 pm

Mechagodzilla!

Chichikovovich October 17, 2012 at 5:18 pm

I have to agree with Megyn: if they hadn't asked the question about Libya that the Republicans have been openly salivating about attacking Obama on, then Romney wouldn't have had a chance to reveal that his carefully prepared and practiced talking point was a talking caterwauling point from the Fox News echo chamber that could be easily disproved by a five second glance at a publicly available transcript.

fuflans October 17, 2012 at 6:41 pm

i'm still dreading the next debate. mitt muffed the chance to really attack last night (went into that stupid wingtard list of ALL the things wrong in the middle east which is mostly inaccurate / not bamz fault and thereby undercut his own argument). BUT it's a nasty topic. i hope they have some good responses on hand.

Negropolis October 17, 2012 at 10:04 pm

Let's be clear, so long as this thing is still under investigation, while an attack killing an ambassador is never, ever a good thing for a president during a campaign, Mitt will look even worse if he keeps trying to push the issue and politicize it.

I say that the issue is a wash in the very best scenario for Romney, and if he even slightly missteps, well, it looks like what you saw last night where he was given the most hellish rebuke we've seen in a debate in a very long time.

You need to stop dreading. Let's measure our gut with our head instead of instant dispair.

tessiee October 17, 2012 at 11:08 pm

yes, President Obama is a big ol' meanie who should have known better than to ask Mittens questions that he's stupid about answering and/or too lazy to properly research. He should have asked him about gas being $4 a gallon instead, because I don't think Mitt got enough chances to mention that.

actor212 October 17, 2012 at 5:19 pm

*crickets chirping*

SexySmurf October 17, 2012 at 5:21 pm

No. Chirping crickets definitely have a liberal bias.

Chet Kincaid_ October 17, 2012 at 5:21 pm

Why would someone name a girl "Me-Gyn"!? Is that a character from you youngsters' shitty '80s He-Man cartoons?

BadKitty904 October 17, 2012 at 5:59 pm

Sounds kind…furrin…to me.

Cleopatriot October 17, 2012 at 6:08 pm

I was just thinking that too. Only instead of foreign, I thought 'semi-literate.'

Want to bet it's really Megan, like a normal person?

Ah, so we need the proper kind of people at these debates. Retired journamalist Charlie Gibson would be perfect – he has Preznitshall debate experience, and he's retired, so he has all kinda time on his hands.

how about that obvious teabagger plant at the debate with his misleading Libya question – and before he asked the question he had to plug the lame business he probably "built himself" (Minneola Paper Supply – sounds like a branch of Dunder-Mifflin from "The Office").

Gov.Mittens "How are you not like G.Boosh?" Mitt has run more companies into bankruptcy than W

No small achievement, considering the competition.

cousinitt October 17, 2012 at 7:39 pm

Yes, well, there was that global economic meltdown and all. I'd give the edge to Boosh as the biggest job destroyer in history. Romney is still a wanna-be.

All those questions and answers, why don't you people just listen to what Fox tells you.

Unfortunately, that's exactly what they do. :0/

To be fair, she has admitted that Obama WIPED THE FLOOR with the robot.

The right won't be happy until we just flat out through up are hands and say "Here Govenor Romney, take the position. You deserved it all along. We are sorry."

WTFnF! Wah. Wah. Wah. The fuck didn't get the result(s) he wanted/needed in any category and its the liberals fault. Talk about an entitled fuckwad bitch, Mitt is………….

Biel_ze_Bubba October 17, 2012 at 6:40 pm

I'm willing to tell him, "Assume the position." Does that count?

Fairtackle October 17, 2012 at 5:40 pm

Asking questions of interest to at least half the voters is a blatant pander. Answering any question of any interest to any voter is obviously pandering and a clear sign of weakness of character. this is what made GW Bush one of the best presidents of all time. You will get no answers and you will like it.

Ha, Fox News doesn't even know what to say! When Yahoo news runs stories entitled "How Obama Won the Debate," you are plain screwed

But Megyn really loves maternity leave!

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that she also really loves equal pay for equal work.

Generation[redacted] October 17, 2012 at 6:14 pm

No, she'd rather go home early and cook dinner. Like Mittens said to.

DerrickWildcat October 17, 2012 at 6:02 pm

Megyn?, is probably one of the most fascinating names. Did you know that? Well it's true! It's a fact that's probably in the Encyclopedia Brittany. Did you know that there are infinite ways to spell, Megun or Britney? When Women's College Basketball starts, look at the rosters. You'll see what I mean. Every team has at least one or two Britanys or Meaghans. The possibilities boggle the mind.

bikerlaureate October 17, 2012 at 6:10 pm

How can amoral TV personalities do so much damage to the country while on fake "news" sets?
There will be questions about it.

Equal pay for equal work, abortion, contraception, assault weapons…no one cares about that shit.

What in the world was that romney fellow thinking when he ok'd the use of a liberal lesbian wench as debate moderator???!!! Is your mormon cultist unaware of the lesboharlot's Evil Duplicity???

Gleem McShineys October 17, 2012 at 6:18 pm

Isn't that odd, that when Obama did a shit job in the first debate, some people say he did a shit job. (Some people = everyone)

When Mitt did a shit job in the second debate, some people say "there are questions about the questions." (Some people = one host at the propaganda network)

ttommyunger October 17, 2012 at 6:19 pm

I have a question for Megyn: Go make me a sammich.

sullivanst October 17, 2012 at 6:25 pm

Excuse me, blonde Fox bobblehead with about as much brains as the pieces of plastic they give away at ballparks, but asking how Mitt would pay for his multi-trillion dollar tax cuts and military spending increases is showing concern about the deficit.

Native_of_SL_UT October 17, 2012 at 6:26 pm

Since the Democrats have spent the last decade or so trying to get everybody to forget they ever mentioned gun control, how exactly did it help Obama to bring up that subject?

sullivanst October 17, 2012 at 6:39 pm

Because Mitt Romney made such a horrible mess of his answer? This is surprising for a Republican, but less so for Mitt Romney, given how gun control is one of those issues where by the time he's finished answering a question he'll have a different position than when he started.

Blueb4sinrise October 17, 2012 at 6:59 pm

Ya know, the CNN crawl at the time seemed to show positive response by the 'Indys.' to Barack in his answer . So, uhhhhhh, I guess there will be questions..

Or maybe I was just blurry.

Negropolis October 17, 2012 at 10:10 pm

It's funny though because Mitt botched the answer so badly that it actually did end up being a win for the president. lol

sullivanst October 17, 2012 at 6:26 pm

Alex, I'll take "Ways you know your guy won the debate handily" for $800, please.

LibrarianX October 17, 2012 at 6:38 pm

Of course Megyn Kelly blames the questions, because – you know, the questions come pre-screened in the Oval Office, too. This is HARD.

LibrarianX October 17, 2012 at 6:38 pm

I had no idea that the GOP were such delicate lotus blossoms. What a bunch of god damned babies.

Generally, they're greedy, callous, arrogant, selfish, self-centered swine. But you prolly already knew that…

Thank the Lord for Fox News. They do my thinking for me.

BarackMyWorld October 17, 2012 at 6:56 pm

NBC's newscast coverage of the debate tonight was basically a repetition of saying "Look how childish and rude they both were."

So, in summary: Obama plays nice, gets called a loser for two weeks and watches his poll numbers plummet. Obama puts up a fight, gets called childish and rude.

fuflans October 17, 2012 at 7:13 pm

right? the media narrative – and i especially think the center and soft left leaning media – has been distinctly harsh on obama. has been from the very beginning of his presidency. from the bbc to npr they have routinely subjected him to standards and scrutiny they never did to bush. and over on the center right, the economist has been gunning for him since they endorsed him in '08.

if we were having an honest dialogue about these two candidates, romney's campaign would have been on life support after My European Summer Vacation;and completely dead after the 47% tape.

Negropolis October 17, 2012 at 10:11 pm

Negropolis October 17, 2012 at 9:57 pm

Can I just say that I'm tired of hearing conservatives (and really everybody, but especially conservatives) decrying talking about "womens' issues"? Last I checked, making sure a woman gets paid equal pay for equal work is good for the entire economy. Last I checked, providing women with contraception almost always means lower future poverty rates because they won't be having children that the fathers never even considered raising and the mothers can't support. "Womens' issues" my ass.

mosjef October 17, 2012 at 10:20 pm

Y, Megyn? Seriously, Y? Was Meagghhyyynn already takyn?

Schmegeg October 18, 2012 at 1:18 am

I agree with her. Questions like "How are you different from George Bush?" are so difficult for Mittens, especially since he has treated the name "George Bush" like it was Voldemort for the entire campaign.

dopper0189 October 18, 2012 at 1:56 am

Who let her out of the binder anyways? Next time use a 6 ring binder not a 3 ring binder, for extra security!

editor October 18, 2012 at 5:02 am

why, yes, megyn, there may well be some questions about those questions.

clearly, anything pertaining to women's rights is off the table, since, you know, who cares? you're a quite annoying presidential candidate if you dare bring up something like "contraception" or "abortion".

(please note i do not think contraception and abortion are of questionable realism. i know they're real. the quotation marks are only there to signify some people's reluctance to accept their reality.)

insidebeltway October 18, 2012 at 6:09 am

Let's not forget that the lighting was also biased against Romney. It made him look so, well, white. And the sound, too. We could hear his answers that made him sound like a liar.

BeefHardcake October 18, 2012 at 9:34 am

So, to Megyn Kelly, reporting consists of just reading lists of things.

Got it.
