New Conspiracy Theory: Mitt Romney Cheated in Debate
Conservatives this morning cried conspiracy over jobs report numbers that favored the Obama administration. Typical conservatives: petty, desperate, reactionary and childish, quick to claim the other side cheated whenever a political news cycle does not turn their way.
In completely unrelated news — have you guy's seen the shocking, explosive evidence that proves Mitt Romney cheated in the debate?! I can't believe Mitt Romney cheated in this political news cycle that did not turn my way!
The Romney campaign claims the item Mitt Romney retrieves from his pocket is a handkerchief and they almost had me fooled, until I read this irrefutable analysis from Daily Kos…
"I have never seen a man's hanky be so uniform and flat coming from a front pant's pocket. Back pocket, yes, breast pocket in a jacket, yes.. but not the front pant pocket."
The conspiracy goes all the way to the top and bottom of his pockets! You may be thinking, "How do they know so much about how handkerchiefs come out of back pockets?" This is Daily Kos we're talking about. All of their writers are certified handkerchiefs-coming-out-of-pant-pockets experts.
Need more circumstantial evidence? CBS Boston's Bill Buck explains…
After the Romney and Obama families chat post-debate the President walks off stage, leaving his notes behind for an aide, no doubt.
But not so for Romney. The Presidential challenger goes back to his lectern to retrieve his items. It is clear that the only thing that Romney takes is paper. Not a handkerchief. Not a white flag. Nothing but paper.
Mitt Romney was so sneaky, he even brought an actual handkerchief with him and used it during the debate. We assume he then cleverly hid it before shuffling his papers, just to make a local CBS affiliate opinion columnist look foolish.
Never has a hanky been used so treacherously. You can even see watch the clip from c-span here.
This all raises the question, what else did Mitt Romney have in his pocket? Some loose change? Maybe someone should make an amatuerish documentary about it called Loose Change and put it online.
