    “imagine if they debated in drag.”

    Or if they took a drag before debating.

  2. If Obama thinks debate prep is a drag, he should be forced to watch the debate

    If they were in drag, how would they dress?

    Obama as Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman” and Romney as…. Betty White in Golden Girls?

    translation: Why do I have to learn all this stuff. It’s not like I’m going to need it on the golf course.

    Love it!

    @OzarkHillbilly: No, Obama would channel his inner Tyra Banks. And you’ve got the wrong Golden Girl for Mitt – he’s a total Dorothy.

  7. JKB says:

    Obama, he skipped the intelligence briefings all semester only to have to cram right before the debate.
