Breaking News: Debate Ends Abruptly As Obama Punches Romney In Face

that was news from andy borowitz and this is why i follow the US presidential elections. it's hilarious!

as the elections are almost coming to a close, here are some remembrances of the funny highlights that have occurred, in no coherent order and for no logical reason:

1. "binders full of women"

- mitt romney's verbal blunder. i'm laughing as well, but i can't explain exactly why it's so funny. i guess you had to have been following the elections to "get" it. hehehe.

2. the first presidential debate where obama was sucker-punched without a fight and his supporters suffered a nervous breakdown at the romney surge

- reading all the hyperventilation that went on and the hilarious political commentary was funny!

3. "the forty-seven percent"

- one of the most memorable "mini-scandal" of this electoral season. the media feasted vulturinely on this gaffe for a while. it was political entertainment.

4. mitt romney's three-state foreign visit abroad to england, israel and poland for a demonstration of his foreign policy chops

- believe me, it was internationally funny. the media pundits ensured it.

5. joe biden's debate with paul ryan

- go joe!

a memorable, descriptive quote:

"Gentlemen, first question: to the best of your ability, smirk sarcastically at your opponent."


6. paul ryan's marathon record

- fact-checking media people proved its falsity. there was a funny moment there.

7. the democratic and republican nomination nights

- where clint eastwood talked to an empty chair and bill clinton decided to play professor ^_^

8. when it was decided that mitt romney needed to be "humanized" and the story came out of how, in his elementary days, he had tried to cut the long hair of a boy they thought to be gay. he was subsequently referred to as "The Barber Of Cranbrook". you had to have been reading it.

9. the fundraising e-mails

here's a short sample of why following the US elections is so funny. =)

Friend—When I decided to run for president, I had significantly fewer gray hairs than I do today. Michelle says I’ve earned them, which is the nicest possible way to say I’m getting older. In fact, I’m turning 51 in a couple weeks, and to celebrate I’m heading home to Chicago … Donate $3 or whatever you can to support the campaign, and you’ll be automatically entered to join me… Barack
—Obama fundraising e-mail

parody of Obama fundraising e-mail by nathaniel stein:

Friend—Isn’t it amazing how time flies? It seems like just yesterday I was a spry senator of forty-five. Today, I experience joint and back pain, and my cholesterol is frankly not where it should be. Michelle’s no help: she tells me this is the kind of thing I can expect “now that I’m in my fifties.” Will you help, by donating $3 or more today? —Barack

there was more where that came from. ^_^

10. there's actually more; this is just a random, incoherent list. and this part isn't funny but i remember the part in the election where michelle obama gave this awesome speech. it was a moment.

thank you so much for all the wonderful coverage of the us election news. loved it, enjoyed it, was made a better edified and informed person by it, thank you. =)
