On Debate Eve, Romney Camp Focused On Zingers, Not Substance

The Romney campaign has decided that presidential debates are about memorable moments, according to a recent NY Times report, and to that end their candidate is committing numerous "zingers" to memory for use against President Obama Wednesday night.

This should be fun. Mitt Romney is such a gifted, though unwitting, comedian that there's no doubt he'll be entertaining. (I bet he doesn't think of it as a "zinger," though. I bet he thinks of it as a "hot one.") (I hope after he lays a "hot one" on Obama he looks at the camera, smirks, and says, "Ba-zinga.")

For his part, the president has said he is hoping for a serious debate concerning the important issues of the day.

Before the debate has begun, the score is Obama 1, Romney 0.
