All I Need Is ‘I Was Wowed, Wolf’ And I’ve Got Bingo

My nominations for Post-Debate Spin Bingo:

“Well, there were no knockouts.”
“Obama didn’t look like he was just a  four-year senator out there.”
“John McCain didn’t look like a twenty-six year veteran of the Senate out there.”
“I think Obama exceeded expectations.”
“I expected more from Senator McCain. I think he underperformed. He had an off night.”

“I think Obama really closed the commander-in-chief deficit.”
“His closing statement was the greatest speech by Obama since his convention address, which was the greatest speech since his Berlin address, which was his greatest speech since he won the nomination, which was his greatest speech since his speech on race where he said he could no more disown Jeremiah Wright than own grandmother, which was his greatest speech since his Iowa victory speech, which was his greatest speech since he announced his campaign, which was the greatest speech since his 2004 Democratic Convention address, which was the greatest American speech since the Gettysburg Address.”

Over/under on Obama’s “uh”s: 256.
