Via on Oct 20, 2012

Just a week or so ago, The New Yorker’s cover featured Mitt Romney debating an empty chair, a reference both to Clint Eastwood’s infamous, incoherent convention speech and to Obama’s infamously passive first debate performance.

    In 2008 it was all about Hope and Change, restoring civil liberties, ending the wars. Now it's big bird, binders, and Romnesia.
