Obama campaign calls lib bloggers “tinfoil hat crowd”

It’s going to be a long day, and it’s going to end with 90 minutes of Joe Biden. So let’s try to enjoy ourselves and have a little fun, eh? This item from the Washington Examiner should brighten up your morning:

Shortly after the presidential debate last week, a number of liberal bloggers, including ones at Daily Kos, FireDogLake, Democratic Underground, and the Daily Beast’s Andrew Sullivan, among others, began posting items suggesting that Mitt Romney had cheated during the debate.

The theory was that, as some video of the event appeared to suggest, Romney slipped a folded piece of paper out of his pocket and onto his podium just before the debate started. The bloggers suggested this was a “cheat sheet.” The theory was pretty clearly debunked. The paper was in fact a handkerchief … that Romney was shown later in the debate mopping his brow with…

Fox asked the Obama campaign for its reaction. Spokesman Ben LaBolt provided them with the following statement:

No — We’ve never casted our lot with the tinfoil hat crowd.

Isn’t it “cast our lot,” not “casted our lot”? In any case, it’s delightful to see the Obama campaign treat its staunchest supporters with such respect. You gonna take that, Sully? Well, of course you are.

It’s been a solid week since Obama lost the debate, and it’s all anybody wants to talk about. The Obama camp’s reaction has been hilariously inept — “We’re the only ones looking out for Big Bird,” “I was just too darn polite,” “Romney’s a big stinky liar, for reasons we’re too busy to get into right now,” etc. — and now they’re even lashing out at their base over it.

Isn’t it wonderful?

In case you hadn’t heard, when Obama left that stage in Denver, he actually thought he had won. The only reason anybody thinks he didn’t is because nobody is as awesome as he is. Oh, how you have disappointed him, America. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

Fortunately, you can make amends. You can win back his love. You can prove yourselves worthy of his magnificence.

Four more years!
