I needed something to cheer me up today, and Charlie Pierce seems to have come through:

http://www.esquire.com/blogs/politics/vp-debate-2012-1360940...

He turns a few great phrases in this essay... And he makes me want to watch the debate this evening.

One of the oddest reactions to the president's feather-in-the-gales-of-pure-b*llsh-t performance last week is the notion among a number of very smart liberal humans that he doesn't want to be president anymore and, way out on the fringe, the corollary that his debate demeanor was the rhetorical equivalent of Eddie Cicotte of the Chicago White Sox hitting the first Cincinnati batter he faced in the 1919 World Series. I'm not good enough at trans-area-code psychology to agree with this conclusion, although I do admit that the president should be a little more juiced than this about the prospect of deflating Willard Romney just for the sheer fun of it, since Romney is so obviously a bag of hot air that they should string him up and float him through Manhattan this Thanksgiving.
